Eastbourne, Sussex
Eastbourne is a large town on the south coast of England, in the county of East Sussex. It became a popular resort
in the 19th Century with  the arrival of rail links, and tourism is still its main industry. The town is one of the
sunniest places in Great Britain due to its sheltered location at the foot of the South Downs.
