One of the United Kingdom's best-loved holiday destinations, East Sussex has something to offer holidaymakers of just about every persuasion. The rolling South Downs National Park are peppered with bustling and historical market towns. The dramatic southern coastline offers a medley of idyllic beaches and charming seaside resorts. One of the county's more unusual attractions is Arlington Stadium. Situated just north of Eastbourne, the racetrack is within easy reach of some of the finest hotels in East Sussex.
Total Excitement in Hailsham
Arlington Stadium is located in Hailsham, some nine miles from Eastbourne. The 350 yard concrete oval represents the home of speedway in the south of England. For decades, the Hailsham site has played host to some of the most dramatic and exciting races in the local area. This unique venue allows the crowd to get close to the action, getting the most out of this high octane sport.
Packed with Facilities
The ground at Arlington Stadium is well set up for visitors to have a memorable day. The covered grandstand benefits from central heating, making the sport an attractive proposition all through the year. There's a licensed club house, food stalls and toilets with good disabled access. There's also a sponsors' lounge on-site and plenty of car parking, making it an easy place to visit from elsewhere.
Accommodation near Arlington Stadium
The county of East Sussex is packed with excellent hotels, meaning finding somewhere to stay near the stadium couldn't be easier. Just nine miles away, the seaside resort of Eastbourne is the obvious choice. Eastbourne's iconic seafront isn't just a nice place to stroll in the summer months; it's also lined with grand and well-equipped hotels too.
A little further along the coast, visitors will find the popular seaside city of Brighton and Hove. There are plenty of equally grand hotels along Brighton's seafront but a lot of visitors are keen to head across town to the more bohemian quarters, to experience the city's unique charm. Those seeking a friendly bed and breakfast option can head to the welcoming Kemp Town district, just to the east of the city centre.
