Beach huts flanking pretty Bexhill Beach

For lovers of historic seaside architecture Bexhill-on-Sea is a real highlight on the South East Coast. The iconic modernist and beautifully restored De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill is centrally situated on the seafront surrounded by spectacular Indian Raj influenced architecture. The Pavilion is today one of the South East's premier art galleries showcasing the very best of contemporary art, and with an ample selection of exhibitions featuring the most famous of modernist artwork.

A perfect South Coast beach break with a cultural twist, Bexhill's beach is an award-winner flanked by pretty beach huts. Stroll along the beautiful promenade and stop awhile in one of the alfresco seafront cafes, and don't miss a tour of the old town. This elegant Fairtrade seaside town is also popular for sailing and kitesurfing.

Visit nearby Sidley village with its many small specialist antiques and collectables shops. Bexhill is also famed for its premier local golf courses including Highwoods Golf Club and Cooden Beach Golf Club. Egerton Park just off the seafront is where to head for tennis courts and a large leisure swimming pool is at Ravenside Retail Park.

De La Warr Pavilion

One of the UK's great modernist structures, the De La Warr Pavilion designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff in 1935 has been restored to its original glory. The architect Erich Mendelsohn (1887-1953) is credited with spearheading the style of Expressionism and influencing both the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne styles. Mendelsohn was a German Jew who left Germany in 1933, pursuing a successful career in England. He was later struck off the German Architects Union and his money was seized by the nazis. In the early 1940s he emigrated to the US where he taught at Berkeley University.
