Accommodation and Travel
Eastbourne is set on the stunning South Downs coast and offers something for everyone. Three miles of promenade for that early morning walk or run.... and the resort is near the top of the UK sunshine league table every year. South Downs National Park has characterful Sussex villages such as Alfriston (fantastic cream teas!) and East Dean and scenic walks such as Arlington Bluebell walk, Cuckmere Valley, Birling Gap or Seven Sisters with far reaching views over coast and countryside. There is lots to do for all the family.
Hotels and Guest houses
The Eastbourne Accommodation Bureau has negotiated discount rates at many hotels and guest houses just a short distance from the conference venue.

The key approach roads are M23, A27, A22 and A259 coastal road. As you arrive in Eastbourne follow signs for Devonshire Theatre / Tennis Centre.
Car parking is payable by meter along the seafront and in areas closest to the town centre. Please check when you park to see if charges apply. There is a pay car park in College Road just behind the venue (free after 18.00 every day). Road parking to the west and north of the venue is currently free.
