Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters

Reviewed By DaveThomasLeicester - Leicester

Another overpriced National Trust place that should be free to all. Shop doesn't open until 11:00 (and it's usual N.T. tat) and the access to the beach was closed (""""Health & Safety""). Paths muddy and virtually no signage. Just let the British people experience our gorgeous coast without fencing it off and charging us for the privilege. Ridiculous!

Royal Hippodrome Theatre

Reviewed By samroz3 - London, United Kingdom

Want to the Hippodrome to watch the Wizard of Oz. The theatre needs some tlc on the outside and in the toilets. However, the seats were comfy and there was enough space for leg room for me (I'm 5ft 10) and you're not squashed in. We sat in the stalls in K9 and K10 and had a great view, The theatre is rather small compared to other theatres, which is great because it gives the show an intimate feel.
Although the review should be purely for the theatre, I have to say the show by AP theatre productions was fantastic, the actors were amazing and the show had enough adult humour yet was still appropriate for children. The show was pure feel good fun and was enough to get this middle age cynic's toe tapping. I have to say I really did love the show and thought the theatre itself was a good space.
My only gripe would be there was a French man who sat on our row and was translating the show all the way through to his daughter, did detract as you could hear him talking in the background throughout the show. I feel that staff should have addressed this.

A friend and I called in on spec and had spent a delightful half hour with the owner and artist learning about the inspiring collection of paintings. Each painting has a story and it was great to learn about locations, inspiration and techniques.It was a great pleasure to welcome you both and many thanks for your kind words.

Eastbourne Bandstand

The current bandstand was built in 1935, with its unique semi-circular design and blue domed roof; there is no other like it in the United Kingdom. It has a main arena, middle and upper balconies and seats for 1,600. For many years the Bandstand has played host to a full programme of Concerts and events and has survived as a outdoor musical entertainment venue because of its ever changing programme, introducing new audiences and new entertainment's without forgetting the more popular traditional Concerts. The Bandstand to this day plays an important part in the musical entertainment on the south coast offering around 140 - 150 Concerts per year.

Reviewed By Michael-4551 - Caloundra, Australia

Visited on Friday 20th October. This Bandstand is situated on the seafront at Eastbourne and if your into Art Deco Buildings then this is a must see. When we were there if felt a bit neglected and could do with a paint to restore it to it's former glory.

Devonshire Park Theatre

Reviewed By Aljen - East Sussex, United Kingdom

My wife and I are fond of this little theatre. All the staff members are friendly and helpful.
On this visit, we saw Spamalot. The small cast was word perfect, and had excellent comic timing. So funny.
Obviously it couldn’t compare to the West End version we saw in 2006, which had Tim Currey in the lead role, but it wasn’t far off, considering the confines of the small stage.
This theatre has a wonderful range and variety of shows and Concerts throughout the year. Something for everyone.

Reviewed By PSE1954 - Kettering, United Kingdom

Arrived in Eastbourne and with time to spare before checking into our hotel we parked next to this fortress. What a surprise when we climbed down into the heart of the fort. Quite a surprise to find what is on the inside from looking from the road. Although we travelled as a couple kids would love this.

Grand Parade Main Resort Beach

Reviewed By northants90 - Northampton, United Kingdom

It was bracing wind and choppy when I first visited but was still beautiful. Well looked after sea front and great views one way toward Beachy Head and the other toward the pier.
Nice Promenade and in the summer it will be quite special I am sure. Great place to walk and places to stop off at and refresh. Lovely.
