Bexhill and Cooden

Bexhill-on-Sea has a rich architectural history centred around Victorian and Edwardian design, it is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, historic attractions and a good selection of shops, restaurants and accommodation.

Bexhill Beach is a main attraction. Its long, gently sloping, shingle beach provides a great location for days out, leisurely walks and enjoying the activities on offer. The De La Warr Pavilion provides a focal point for visitors, offering events and year round entertainment.

Cooden Beach lies to the west of Bexhill and provides a secluded getaway, where you can enjoy a quieter beach area. Outside the Coast Award area you can enjoy windsurfing, kite surfing and other exciting water activities. Beach huts lie at Herbrand Walk and there is ample opportunity for bird watching.

Byelaws restrict some activities on Bexhill Seashore and the Promenade.
