I first discovered this wonderful shop when living in Eastbourne in 1997/98. Since then I have been living in North Yorkshire, but am always in touch with Henry to buy earrings. I am seldom able to travel down to Eastbourne now, but if I do, it's the only shop I visit - always packed with interesting and tasteful items. Very tempting indeed! Please don't miss it if you live - or are a visitor to - the area.

We have been visiting He ray Paddon for many years and have some wonderful local art from his shop from big and small, to quirky and cute. I love Arrington and can always find something to go with a new outfit here. Henry himself is a real gentleman; he always remembers your name and you never feel pressurised to buy. If there is something you would like but it is not in the shop he contacts the artists to see if he can source it. He is a gem and so is his shop.

An extremely welcoming shop that allows a casual relaxed perusal of a wonderful mix of art. There is never a time we haven't come out empty handed when we are looking for something a bit unique as a present. Well worth a visit if you're looking for that something special.

Whilst I have been coming to Eastbourne since I was a small child, and continue to visit regularly to see my parents, I have only just discovered Henry Paddon's gem of a shop/gallery, which has been around for 27 years. A Graham Sendall painting caught my eye and pulled me in and I spent the next hour in animated conversation with Henry, who, in his modest, understated way, shared his expertise in and passion for the art he exhibits and sells: Barbara Jackson and Graham Sendall were highlights for me, plucking at my heart and sensory strings; I did not want to leave and I shall return.

Henry Paddons art studio is a unique and amazing environment as well as a showplace for local artists, jewellers, sculptors and so much more. A wonderfully inspiring destination if you are looking for that special gift or a piece of original art for yourself. I visit perhaps 2-3 times a year and rarely leave empty handed and definitely with a smile on my face. Definitely worth a browse and with no pressure from Henry to part with your cash.

We have been coming to see Henry for many years and have purchased several stunning pieces mainly by Sam Fanaroff. Even the sister in law has acquired several items of Sams work over the years. There is always a great mix of art in every style, taste and price range. Henry is very knowledgeable about the works and artists and you always get a friendly welcome.

Although we did not buy my wife and I spent a happy hour looking at prints and learning about the artists from the owner (Henry I presume?) He has a really nice selection of prints by local artists, and plays some nice jazz at a moderate level to add to the ambiance. If our house were not already virtually bursting we would definitely have bought one, but we were looking for something very specific. We recommend a visit.

Henry Paddon boasts an eclectic selection of contemporary art. This is the shop to buy local Sussex art in when you are in Eastbourne. Reasonably priced, wonderful cross section, something for everyone. Paintings, printmaking, sculpture, carvings, ceramics, quilting, cards, you name it. On the top of my list for Christmas shopping.

Jam-packed with local art and craft as well as unusual things from further afield. Make sure you leave plenty of time for a visit to this very special emporium of wonderful items. Something to suit all tastes and pockets and a very welcoming and knowledgeable owner will definitely be back next time I visit Eastbourne.

I was extremely impressed by the standard of work that is on show here. The owner is very welcoming and was able to give me lots of information about the artist that I was interested in. A very rewarding visit.
