Eastbourne is located on the south coast of England in East Sussex. It lies in between Brighton and Hastings at the eastern end of the chalk South Downs, alongside the high cliff at Beachy Head. It’s sheltered location behind the cliff has earned it the title of the sunniest place in Britain.
The Arndale Centre is the main shopping facility in here with over 70 well known shops and food venues. The University of Brighton has a campus in here, located to the west of the town centre in three main clusters: Darley Road, Hillbow and Welkin. The campus is home to many health courses, as well as sport and service management.

Tourism brings around £50 million of income and is responsible for over 4000 jobs in Eastbourne. The town is a popular short break resort, and during special events such as the Eastbourne International tennis tournament, hotels are all full. The seafront predominantly consists of Victorian hotels, and the pier and bandstand also serve to preserve the front in a traditional and timeless manner. Many people visit from London on day trips as the two are connected by rail. Jobs in tourism can range from the part-time jobs as hotel or restaurant staff, to long-term careers as managers for larger hotels and tourism venues.
Culture also plays a big part of the town’s economy thanks to a number of theatres and concert venues. The London Philharmonic Orchestra makes regular appearances and has an annual season at the Congress Theatre. Eastbourne is home to four Grade II listed council-owned theatres: the Congress Theatre, the Devonshire Park Theatre, the Winter Garden and the Royal Hippodrome Theatre. It is also a popular destination for film-makers, and the seafront and the iconic cliff at Beachy Head have been used for many scenes in feature films. The local council has set up a film liaison unit to encourage and facilitate the shooting of film sequences in and around the town. Careers in the arts are few and far between with most contracts being short-term (six months to a year). On the plus side you can add many different skills to your CV quickly - and be sure of an enjoyable and rewarding life.
