Fresh, locally-sourced food is served in our first floor restaurant overlooking the sea. Or you can sit in the café/bar or outside on the balconies for a drink and home-made snack from 10am- 5.30pm. There is also a breathtaking roof-top terrace where you can linger to take in the panoramic view before coming back down to the ground floor and visiting our shop, selling books and unique souvenirs by top designers.
Commissioned by the 9th Earl De La Warr in 1935 and designed by architects Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff, the De La Warr Pavilion was the UK‘s first public building built in the Modernist style.
Pioneering in structure as it was in spirit, the purpose of this steel and concrete Pavilion was to provide accessible culture and leisure for the people of Bexhill and beyond and so regenerate the economy of the town and the surrounding area.
Following its re-opening in October 2005, the Pavilion has:
• One of the largest contemporary art galleries in South East England
• A fine auditorium with a capacity of 350 - 1250
• A large, new studio space
• Roof and ground floor terraces, including an award-winning bandstand
• A first-class café, bar and restaurant with outdoor sun terraces
• A shop specialising in books and merchandise on arts and culture
• Indoor and outdoor spaces to sit, relax and enjoy panoramic seaviews.
