WHAT IS A SERVICED APARTMENT?

Offering flexibility and privacy, these properties are ideal for those needing to work temporarily (long or short term) in a new location. 

An obvious benefit of using serviced apartments for business travel is the comparative savings in cost. Like for like, serviced accommodation are far better value when compared with hotel equivalents – the space and features provided cost a fraction of what they would in a hotel setting.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT STAYING IN EASTBOURNE? 


Known primarily as a seaside resort, Eastbourne’s economy is bolstered by tourism as the majority of its income comes in the summer through seaside attractions and holidaymakers making the most of the beach and pier. The town has a typically Victorian style of architecture as prominent landowner William Cavendish (later Duke of Devonshire) sent architect Henry Currey to Europe for inspiration before the town’s streets were developed. The result is a distinctive and attractive seaside town with traditional features. 

Transport

Eastbourne, being modest in size, can be easily traversed on foot for those wanting to indulge in a leisurely paced exploration of the town. It does, of course, offer a variety of transportation options, including an extensive number of local bus services and express coach services. The local train station also provides a direct route to London – with travel times typically taking around one and a half hours. 

Weather 

Being on the South coast of England, Eastbourne benefits from a warm climate year round – however the town does have significant annual rainfall, meaning it is always worth being prepared for a shower, even in the driest month of July. However, it is the sunniest place in the UK on average, so be prepared for both extremes. 

WHAT ELSE IS EASTBOURNE KNOWN FOR? 


For a relatively small town, Eastbourne has some remarkable history. During WWII, Eastbourne was the most bombed seaside town in England – this was due to its position as the last town bombers flew over on their return to Germany. It is through almost four thousand bombs fell on the town in total.  

In 1804, Wish Tower was built in the town. This fort was one of many constructed on England’s coast to defend against Napolean’s forces. The tower still exists today, and is occasionally opened to the public – but in any case is an interesting attraction with a beautiful garden to visit during your stay in the town.
