About this location
The East Sussex region
Pevensey is only five miles from Eastbourne and a short distance from Eastbourne's Sovereign Harbour. It is one of the premier marinas in England with a lot of prestigious yachts moored there. There is good reason why Eastbourne is known as the sunshine coast since it attracts some of the best weather in England. Everything is within easy reach, the lower slopes of the South Downs drop down from Beachy Head on to the magnificent promenade that stretches for almost two miles to Eastbourne's Victorian Pier. It is a town of tradition yet it has very much a modern feel with plentiful restaurants and bars.
In the summer Eastbourne comes alive with the very popular Airbourne together with the AEGON International Tennis Tournament in Devonshire Park which attracts many of the world's top tennis players prior to Wimbledon. With its sheltered setting next to Beachy Head, Eastbourne also has some of the best Blue Flag beaches along the south coast. Beachy Head is a magnificent backdrop, with its dramatic chalk cliffs, lighthouse and gently undulating Downs. It is within the South Downs National Park and also marks the start of the 100 mile South Downs Way to Winchester. Five miles to the east from Pevensey, Bexhill on Sea has retained the qualities of a traditional Victorian seaside town and English life at the start of the last century. Like Eastbourne it benefits from some of the best sunshine in the UK and is rightfully known as being part of the sunshine coast. It is filled with Victorian and Edwardian architecture and is possibly most famous for the De La Warr Pavilion located right on the promenade.
Pevensey village is on a ridge of land that juts out into the marshland at Pevensey Levels, an area of outstanding natural beauty that is important for birdlife and wildlife. The village is a mile inland from the beach at Pevensey Bay and is filled with many quaint stone and weatherboard cottages. It is best known however because of its castle.
Pevensey Castle was the landing place of William the Conqueror's army in 1066. From the fourth century it had been a Roman and Saxon Shore Fort and two thirds of the walls still stand today. Following the conquest a full scale Norman castle with a square keep and gatehouse was built within the fort. Today the castle is looked after by English Heritage and can be found under Places to Visit in East Sussex on our website.
