The Sunshine County and a great Airshow!

Posted 15 July 2011 by Andrew Gardner

If you want the most hours of sunshine in the British Isles then you'll find it here in Sussex. Yes it's pretty much given that Sussex has the best climate in the UK.

If you want the most hours of sunshine on the coast, then head to Eastbourne. For good reason it's officially called the Sunshine Coast with award winning beaches and an excellent sunshine record, I can't remember it ever raining there!

So if you're free in the middle of August why not come down and take in a spectacular airshow as well!.

Airbourne is the World’s Biggest Free Seafront Airshow, 4 days of action packed flying on Eastbourne Seafront, see the iconic Red Arrows leading a packed programme of Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, British Army, Helicopters, Freefall Parachute Teams. This year Airbourne is between 11 and 14 August 2011.

If you wish you can book exclusive seating at Eastbourne Bandstand for Airbourne 2011 and enjoy uninterrupted views of the flying line from your own seat at the Bandstand.  Come and go all day knowing you have your own seat to sit back and enjoy the flying overhead.

Airbourne into the Evening and enjoy the Airshow atmosphere on every night of Airbourne with Bandstand concerts including tribute, Big Band and more. Find oout more from our What's on in Sussex pages.

You can also enjoy a short break exploring Beachy Head and the South Downs, as a holiday resort, Eastbourne has something for everyone.

We have availability still for Eastbourne Airbourne at Keesha House Apartment, it's a superbly presented two bedroom holiday apartment that is right in the heart of the town next to Devonshire Park. 

We also have some fabulous cottages available for this period across East Sussex, so take a look on our website for availability.
