THE SUSSEX COASTAL ART TRAIL

An exciting cultural adventure on the Sussex Coast from the Towner Art Gallery at Eastbourne via the De La Warr Pavilion by the sea in genteel Bexhill-on-Sea to the award winning Jerwood Art Gallery in Hastings Old Town.


We begin in Eastbourne at 10.30am with morning coffee included at The Towner Collection. The collection of modern British art began with a bequest of Victorian paintings and grew with acquisitions of Sussex landscapes featuring a cross-section of important 20th century British artists including Edward Bawden, Paul Nash and Eric Ravilious. We’ll drive along the coast to Bexhill for time to buy lunch in and around the De La Warr Pavilion. The cultural rebirth of the Sussex coast began right here back in the 1930s with this modernist building. Take to the roof for views over the channel and along the coast to Beachy Head.


Next an exhilarating coach tour along the coast through St Leonards where the grand regency buildings are emerging from years of decline and forming the backdrop to an influx of artsy types creating a sort of Portobello-on-Sea. Arriving in Hastings by the fishing beach with cartoonishly tall black fishing net sheds we visit the seafront Jerwood Gallery. The focus is on art created between the First World War and the 1960s including Sir Stanley Spencer, Lowry, Walter Sickert, Augustus John and Maggi Hambling.


Time to buy tea before heading home at 4.45pm.
