The Story of Eastbourne Attraction Venue

About

Ranging from pre-history to present day, the three dimensional timeline tells the story of Eastbourne through the eyes of past ancestors, starting with the Iron Age woman and child, discovered during excavations in Kings Drive just a couple of years ago, and the world renowned Beachy Head woman.

From an ancient elephant’s tooth unearthed in Eastbourne to a piece of real Roman floor, a vast collection of artefacts is on display, along with interactive exhibits, child-friendly activities and significant past discoveries, all of which tell the story of human settlement in the area.

The exhibition will be a positive step towards eventually creating a permanent museum telling the story of Eastbourne. The town's story is actually far older than most people imagine – in fact, did you know that ancient elephants once grazed through Terminus Road in Eastbourne?

Although the exhibition conveys 150,000 of history, it just scratches the surface of the town’s unique story, providing a taster of what may be to come.
