De La Warr Pavilion


Soaring above Bexhill’s seafront like a great white ocean liner, the De La Warr Pavilion is a Modernist masterpiece that feels astonishingly fresh and contemporary for an 80+ year old.

It owes its existence to the 9th Earl de la Warr, Bexhill’s socialist mayor, vegetarian and pacifist who raised public funds and made the case for culture-led regeneration half a century before anyone thought of the Bilbao Guggenheim.
