As a seaside town, Bexhill really comes into its own when the sun comes out. One of the most popular spots is Bexhill beach and promenade, which has beach huts and deck chair hire.
However, there are sandy beaches in the area, including neighbouring Cooden beach, so it’s easy to find a quiet spot where you can admire the scenery or enjoy a spot of sailing or sea angling.
Alternatively, you can explore Egerton Park, which is located just back from the seafront, and offers a range of facilities, including a children’s play zone, fitness area and tennis courts, as well as stunning views. The park is also home to Bexhill Tennis Club and indoor and outdoor bowling clubs.
If the weather takes a turn for the worst, there are still plenty of attractions to keep you occupied. Bexhill Museum is between Egerton Park and the seafront, and puts on a range of exhibitions, as well as hosting afternoon activities for kids.
You can also visit the De La Warr Pavillion, which is worth visiting purely for its impressive architectural design, but also hosts art exhibitions, as well as workshops, activities, tours and talks, or the former home of Rudyard Kipling, which is around 13 miles to the north of Bexhill.
In terms of retail, Bexhill has a range of high-street shops, including a Boots, WH Smith and F.Hinds the Jewellers, as well as a range of independent shops, including bridal stores, gift shops and galleries.
