Campsite outside Eastbourne
Large campsite about ten minutes drive from Eastbourne centre towards Pevensey Bay.
The layout is pretty idiotic with tents the farthest from the toilets/showers block.
The camp ground is nice with lots of flat grass area but the toilet and shower block is very decrepit. It does not look good. When we stayed there was plenty of hot water but no loo rolls.
Noisy from the busy road next door. Large space for caravans, immense field for tents.

"Meads School of English"
I stayed in Eastbourne for about a fortnight and during that time I took an intensive course in English at the Meads School of English.
I took both morning and afternoon classes. All aspects of the English language were dealt with: speaking, listening, reading and writing. My teachers were Chris and Andrew. Our group consisted of about ten students from different countries: Switzerland, Korea, Spain, Venezuela ...

The school building consists of two semi-detached houses, joined in a very strange way ; this picture was taken in the backyard

This makes me rather sad, it is something I read the other day, an old news article on the internet, dating back to 2006: "Long-established Eastbourne centre, the Meads School of English, closed today, Friday 3 November, after its Board decided that it was at risk of trading insolvently.English UK had been alerted the previous day and mobilised its emergency support service, the Student Emergency Support Fund, to ensure that students can complete the courses they have paid for and stay with the same host families. All 20 students on roll at Meads have been found alternative courses at three neighbouring centres in Eastbourne, the Eastbourne School of English, GEOS/LTC, and Twin."
"Pier, gardens and cliffs"
The town of Eastbourne, a well-known seaside resort in East Sussex. This picture was taken on a cloudy day, but Eastbourne is usually a very cheerful and pleasant town!

Beachy Head (actually derived from a French expression that meant beautiful headland) with its amazing lighthouse in the sea ...
I went to Beachy Head by bus, I took the Guide Friday tour that starts on the Parade in Eastbourne. Be sure to ask the driver when the last bus departs from Beachy Head, because it would be a long walk home.
