You can hardly call The Royal Pavilion a hidden gem due to its external appearance however be prepared to be amazed by its internal design... if you are expecting grand then your expectations will be exceeded. Well worth a visit.

Train is best, do not go by car as Brighton is a nightmare for car travelers. It has a good bus system in the town and a good one to Eastbourne. If you like walking you could walk the Seven Sisters.
