With a beautiful seafront and a genteel atmosphere, yet also an easy commute away from London, it’s no surprise that Eastbourne has seen a 21st century resurgence. This has therefore led to an influx of Eastbourne serviced apartments on offer in this south-east coastal location.
Eastbourne is a classic English seaside town, its seafront lined extensively with beautiful Victorian buildings, many of which are sizeable hotels. Originally starting as a fishing hamlet, the town now has a population of around 81,000. It was in the late 18th century though that the seaside destination became a fashionable resort following a visit from King George III’s children. Trends of drinking seawater and sea-bathing propelled Eastbourne’s popularity even further. With the motto ‘The good life just got better’ Eastbourne became a significant English tourist destination and what it is today. Why not stay in one of our Eastbourne aparthotels so you can experience the resort town lifestyle for yourself.
Blessed with plenty of natural beauty nearby, Eastbourne has more to offer visitors than the beach and promenade. First, there is Beachy Head. Just west of the town, with Britain’s highest chalk sea cliff, the Head is a type of rock prevalent in this area of coastline. Beachy Head is part of the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which borders the entirety of Eastbourne’s western edge.
The town has some other notable landmarks. This includes the Redoubt, a seafront Napoleonic Fortress, and its sizeable Victorian Pier. Despite suffering a serious fire in 2014, the pier is already a long way into its restoration. All these stunning attractions are only short walks away from our Eastbourne city apartments.
Eastbourne is also well known for its tennis connections. The yearly pre-Wimbledon women’s tournament, The Eastbourne International, takes place there every year at Devonshire Park. The park is also a popular conference venue and lies close to the seafront. Be sure to catch the entire tournament whilst staying at SITU’s Eastbourne extended stay apartments.
Despite what many might consider the death of the Great British seaside holiday in the last few decades, there is a real requirement for Eastbourne serviced apartments. The combination of a seafront location and a thriving town centre undergoing continual development is ideal business visitors.
In terms of yearly visitors, corporate travellers and the resident population, the town continues to flourish. The service industry, involving tourism, is the largest segment of the local economy, employed around 74% of Eastbourne’s workers. This has been borne out by a corresponding reduction in the town’s average age in comparison to the end of the 20th century.
The resort town has also become a popular residence for those commuting into London and even nearby Brighton. Just 44 miles south of the M25, Eastbourne is also less than hour’s car journey from Gatwick Airport.
