The Grand Hotel Eastbourne - Eastbourne, East SussexKing Edwards Parade, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 4EQ

The Grand Hotel is one of the UK's most magnificent Victorian hotels. Situated on the seafront at Eastbourne, it dominates the shoreline and enjoys a stunning outlook over the sea and the cliffs at Beachy Head.

Affectionately known as 'The White Palace', the Grand Hotel is a luxury, 5-star hotel. The composer Debussy completed his symphony 'La Mer' here in 1905, the BBC Palm Court Orchestra used to broadcast live from the Great Hall every Sunday night and Dennis Potter's 'Cream in My Coffee' was filmed here.

Afternoon tea at The Grand is not to be missed. It's well worth working up an appetite with a brisk walk along the seafront so you can enjoy toasted teacakes in one of the country's most famous hotel lounges. Afternoon Tea can also be taken in the Chatsworth Lounge or the Concourse and includes a selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones with decadent cream and jam, Eton Mess, a variety of pastries and a choice of teas and coffees.
