Explore eclectic St Leonards on Sea

Welcome to our vibrant creative community with an eclectic mix of independent shops, eateries, bars and galleries. Created as a elegant seaside resort in the 1830s by the Burton architects, St Leonards on Sea is a fascinating day trip destination.

Take in the architecture on the front, pick a spot on the beach (lifeguard area in front of the modernist Marine Court building) and enjoy a short stroll along the prom to Pier of the Year 2017 with Europe's largest subterranean skatepark next door.

Visit our three beautiful parks: Warrior Square Gardens to the East, St Leonards Gardens to the West, and round off the day walking through Gensing Gardens to a play at ExploreTheArch's enchanting venue. Our summer production opens on 4th August. See you there!
