What do I need to know before moving to Eastbourne?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Eastbourne, they said:

"Before moving to Eastbourne, expats should know that it is a coastal town in East Sussex, known for its Victorian architecture, beaches, and natural beauty. The cost of living in Eastbourne is generally lower than in London, but it is still essential to research the local housing market and rental prices. The town has a good mix of independent shops, high street stores, and supermarkets, making it easy to find everything you need. Eastbourne has a well-connected public transport system, including buses and trains, making it easy to travel within the town and to nearby cities like Brighton and London. Expats should familiarize themselves with the local transport options and consider purchasing a railcard for discounted train fares. The town has a range of educational institutions, including primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges and language schools. Expats with children should research the local schools and their admission processes, as well as any language support services that may be available. Eastbourne has a relatively mild climate, with warm summers and cool winters. Expats should be prepared for unpredictable weather and pack clothing suitable for all seasons. The town is also known for its clean air, which can be beneficial for those with respiratory issues. Healthcare in the UK is provided through the National Health Service (NHS), and expats should register with a local GP (General Practitioner) upon arrival. It is also worth considering private health insurance for additional coverage and faster access to specialists. Eastbourne has a diverse community, with various clubs, societies, and events catering to different interests. Expats should explore these opportunities to meet new people and integrate into the local community. The town is also home to several sports facilities, parks, and outdoor spaces, offering plenty of opportunities for leisure and recreation. Finally, it is essential for expats to familiarize themselves with UK laws, customs, and etiquette, as well as the local culture and history of Eastbourne. This will help ensure a smooth transition and a more enjoyable experience living in this charming coastal town," said one expat who made the move to Eastbourne.
