Free Places to Visit in & Around Bexhill-on-Sea

Bexhill-on-Sea is a peaceful seaside town in East Sussex. The seafront has a relaxed feel, without the bustle of larger resort beaches. The wide prom is the perfect place for a walk, scoot or cycle with little ones and the gently sloping shingle beach remains relatively quiet even in peak season. The famous De La Warr Pavilion is a focal point of the seafront; a beautiful Art Deco building that is now a centre for contemporary arts.
