The popular and elegant seaside town of Eastbourne is one of England’s most appealing resorts famous for its miles of award winning, clean and sandy beaches.
Often referred to as one of the sunniest places in the UK owing to its sheltered position alongside the famous Beachy Head cliff, Eastbourne is a spectacular place to visit.
The Bluebell Railway, one of the UK’s best-preserved heritage railways, commenced train services in August 1960. From Sheffield Park station, through the idyllic Sussex countryside towards Grinstead, the scenic journey gives us the opportunity to learn about the history and science of the industrial age, experience the thrill of getting up close to a working steam locomotive, and luxuriate in the comfort and style of a bygone era - enjoying the lovely vistas along the way.Back to top
