Spending Easter in East Sussex!

Easter is here! It’s a time to see loved ones, eat chocolate and get as much uni work done as possible ??

It’s important to take breaks and make sure you’re spending time away from the library – so we’ve put together a list of things you can do in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings over the Easter break if you’re staying in East Sussex.


Head straight to the beach!

The days are getting longer, the weather is getting better and the seagulls are getting excited for loads of pesky chip-nabbing. Use this time to head down to the beach and de-stress, but remember to take an extra layer as it’s not summer yet!

Be a tourist

Do you find that you only visit Brighton Pier when you’ve got eager friends and family members visiting for the weekend? Us too!

Spend a tourist day in the city: visit the Pier, go to the Pavilion – check out the Toy Museum! You’ll see Brighton in a totally different light. AND if you’re yet to go up the i360, they have brilliant student discounts that you can find out more about here.

Cycle to Rottingdean

If we do get this 3 month heatwave, grab a BTN Bike and ride along the coast to Rottingdean. This is a beautiful cycle route, along the seafront – perfect in great weather.

Krater Comedy Club @ Komedia

Fancy staying indoors instead? Komedia have a fantastic deal for students at their Krater Comedy Club every Sunday. Get a ticket for the show for just £5 here

Check out Boulder Brighton

Use this time to try something new and head to Boulder Brighton.  An active lifestyle is also incredibly beneficial for our wellbeing, so it’s a great activity to choose to take a break from studying.



Take a walk along Eastbourne Promenade

Relax whilst walking along Eastbourne Promenade on a gorgeous sunny day. Take some time for yourself, without worrying about university stress!

Eastbourne Borough Market

If you’re a foodie, head to the Eastbourne Borough Market – it’s on every Wednesday and Sunday and is full of fresh food, nick nacks and bargains.

Eastbourne Bandstand

Check out Eastbourne Bandstand for live music over the holidays! All info about concerts at the Bandstand can be found here.



Get ready for Jack in the Green

Use this time to get your costume ready for Jack in the Green on May 3rd!

Grab a vintage bargain

Are you a fan of vintage-wear? Check out the Latham Street Vintage and Sportswear Sale for a bargain!

Swap your wardrobe @ On the Rocks

Similarly, head to On the Rocks for the Women’s Rock Clothes Swap: this is a great way to refresh your wardrobe in an affordable and sustainable way.
