The Ravilious show at The Towner is worth travelling many miles to see if you are at all interested in Sussex modernism. The exhibition places Ravilious' work in the context of the time and of his contemporaries, friends and lovers. I felt I learnt far...More

We loved this venue for our wedding reception. They were very organised, lovely food from Urban Ground and a great Sussex Open exhibition where guests could enjoy a private viewing. The kids loved the Fuse box karaoke room.

We went to see the Ravilious and Co exhibition which was brilliant. Beautifully laid out and very informative.

We went to a special exhibition (of Ravilious and Friends), costing £8 per head. Very well put together, with really meaty displays and notes. Top class. Nice shop too.

We stayed at a homtel that may be out of your price range. It was the "Big Sleep Hotel", close to the pier and overlooking the sea. We loved it.
