About the Walks

Experienced Local Guide

Kim Adams has a background in social history and trained as a tour guide in 2006. Join him to find out how Eastbourne became "the Empress of Watering Places" thanks to the coming of the railways and the benevolence of the Dukes of Devonshire, and about the many famous (and infamous) people who have lived here.

Walk One: Eastbourne Promenade

Our most popular walk, the Promenade Walk starts outside the Lifeboat Museum (BN21 4BY). We walk along the main promenade to the pier and then back along the seafront promenade to the Grand Hotel. Hear about the development of Eastbourne as a resort built "by gentlemen, for gentlemen". Visit the pier, the bandstand and the Wish Tower and find out about many of the famous people who have lived here in Eastbourne.

Walk Two: Historic Meads

Enjoy a leisurely walk around the Meads area of Eastbourne, "where the Downs meet the sea". Includes the Italian Gardens, St John's Church, Meads Village and the wonderful mansion houses nestling at the foot of the South Downs. Find out about some of the famous local residents and hear the story of the notorious Dr John Bodkin Adams. The walk starts at the thatched tea-chalet in The Helen Garden (Dukes Drive, BN20 7XL, next to Bede's School).
