About the neighbourhood
You are in central Eastbourne and within easy walking distance of the town centre, train station, theatres, bars, cinema, restaurants and seafront. The town centre has an indoor shopping mall (Arndale Centre) and a wide selection of high street retail outlets, while the Enterprise Centre (near the train station) and South Street (at the top of this street) offer more quirky, independent choices. The seafront promenade provides a safe location for a daily stroll, a chance for the children to let off steam on scooters or skates. The well manicured carpet gardens and lawns provide a pleasant backdrop and a trip on the Dotto train or the Beachy Head boat is always a hit! Eastbourne is a great base for exploring the South Downs. The historic South Downs Way follows the cliff to...
