Visitors to the historic town of Bexhill are spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do. This area of the country is packed full of fascinating history dating back to one of the most momentous occasions in British history – the battle of Hastings – when William the Conqueror of Normandy seized control of England by defeating the Anglo-Saxon king, Harold Godwinson in 1066. The town still holds plenty of famous sites connected to the battles which took place at this time, and history lovers young and old will be enthralled by some of the artefacts which have been uncovered here. However, this is just the tip of a large iceberg in regards to cultural activities and treats for the mind that can be found with ease in Bexhill-on-Sea. The shining jewel in the crown of the area is undoubtedly the newly refurbished De-La-Warr Pavilion, a beautifully designed and curated art and culture space which constantly updates its collection of contemporary arts, and has an excellent programme of dance, theatre, music and more.
For those looking to find out more about the local history and heritage of Bexhill will be amazed by what they find at the new Bexhill Museum, now housed in an impressive Bauhaus-inspired exhibition space near the town centre. Here, scientists and curators have worked tirelessly to bring together a stunning collection of archaeological finds, as well as artefacts of ethnographic importance. To walk around the Bexhill museum is to get an intimate view of the nature and culture of this part of South East England; the people who have lived and worked in this area for millennia to make it the place it is today, and the historic events which have passed in this region. Elsewhere in the town, you can find the fantastic Motoring Heritage Centre, a beautifully made museum which houses a huge collection of items, photographs and archive film of the history of motor racing, which was said to have its birth in Bexhill.
For those looking for a bit of peace and quiet, Bexhill offers plenty of wide open spaces and green parks in which families and friends can relax and enjoy a picnic or a walk. Egerton Park is the most loved of these, a huge green space with a boating lake and plenty more to keep all the family entertained and occupied. However, in order to make the most of places like Egerton Park and the other treats in Bexhill, it is important that you are well refreshed in the morning and able to get a good night of sleep at the end of the day. There is no better way to sleep than on a memory foam mattress, such as those provided by Hypnia.
