The Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre is idyllically located in the heart of Eastbourne town centre. Sitting in Cornfield road, just five minutes walk from the station, or five minutes walk from the beach in the other direction.

They have been here helping visitors and residents alike for over 25 years. Unlike other Information Centres  - they have a significantly large detached building that provides enough space for them to provide outstanding help and service to the huge amount of visitors thatEastbournereceives year after year.

What can they help you with?

The TIC prides themselves on being a fountain of knowledge – boasting information assistants that have been around since the centre opened. There is almost nothing that they cannot help you with, no matter how far fetched you may think it is. With hundreds of free leaflets at their disposal coveringEastbourneand the surrounding Areas, and their own devised fact sheets for everything else.
