Discover the landmarks of Eastbourne's most celebrated people, from Tommy Cooper to Lewis Carroll, Charles Dickens and Ernest Shackleton. Plus discover the place where Sherlock retired according to the books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
This heritage trail begins at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre, and takes you along the seafront, through the town, into Meads and then the Old Town. You should allow a few hours to complete the trail.
Some Blue Plaques have been left off of this trail due to the fact that they are further out and would require a form of transport. These are for PC Ward, Sherlock Holmes, Richard Lewis CBE, and Eric Ravilious. However, should you wish to visit them, you can still find them as Points of Interest if you search in the area where they can be found. Further information on them can be found alongside Waypoints 9, and 17, and also on www.visiteastbourne.com
