The large town of Eastbourne is located in East Sussex, on the south coast of England. It is situated to the east of Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Great Britain and it is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Its sheltered position is partly why Eastbourne holds the title of ‘sunniest place in Great Britain’. As a seaside resort, Eastbourne makes a large and increasing income from tourism.
Unfortunately, accidents are not uncommon here due to the town’s proximity to the sea. If you have suffered a slip, trip or fall in Eastbourne that wasn’t your fault, you could suffer a whiplash injury in Eastbourne which can be quite serious.
