About Bexhill, East Sussex
Bexhill is a timeless Edwardian seaside town with a two mile stretch of level promenade and beach to enjoy in East Sussex. It is the perfect town for you if you are looking for a Nursing and Residential Care Home, Day Care Centre, Sheltered Housing or Respite Care.
Bexhill-on-Sea was developed around the turn of the twentieth century and was known as Bexhill “New Town”. It soon became an exclusive seaside resort and was famous for its healthy air, long hours of sunshine and superb entertainment. The picturesque and tranquil Old Town of Bexhill is set inland above the town centre and is home to antique shops and charming architecture. There are many classic Georgian buildings, 16th century cottages and the Anglo Saxon Parish Church of St Peter with its 8th century reliquary stone. The peaceful Manor Gardens and lake are nearby.
All combine to make this area an idyllic place for you to live in or visit. This elegant resort is the birthplace of British motor racing. It was the 8th Earl De La Warr who secured Bexhill’s place in history by hosting Britain’s first automobile races on 19 May 1902. The event attracted international attention. The Motoring Heritage Centre bears testament to this and features photos and historical information about the original races.
Bexhill boasts the magnificent De La Warr Pavilion which opened in 1933. Today it is a Grade 1 Listed Building and it is somewhere that our residents love to visit. It was re-opened in October 2005 as a National Centre for Contemporary Arts. It is also a place for entertainment, education, refreshment and relaxation. It overlooks the newly-refurbished Promenade with its superb views of Beachy Head. Bexhill has a great mix of shops including independent retailers, national chains, fashion outlets, cafes, restaurants and pubs. The nearby towns of Eastbourne and Hastings with their undercover shopping areas are very popular and are included in our excursions. All attractions, museums, shops and the promenade are easily accessed by the town’s excellent bus service.
