The ACCORD ISS Moira House Summer School boasts an enviable location, being in an extremely attractive and prosperous residential area of Eastbourne and only a short walk to the seafront and town centre.

Eastbourne is a large town, seaside resort, and borough in the non-metropolitan county of East Sussex on the south coast of England, 19 miles east of Brighton. Eastbourne is immediately to the east of Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Great Britain. The seafront at Eastbourne consists almost entirely of Victorian hotels. Along with its pier and bandstand, this serves to preserve the front in a somewhat timeless manner. A children’s adventure park is sited at the eastern end of the seafront. 

Eastbourne has numerous parks and gardens, although there are several smaller open spaces including Upperton Gardens, the Carpet Gardens and the Western Lawns. In Hampden Park facilities include: football pitches, rugby club, indoor bowls, a large lake (formerly a Decoy pond), lakeside cafe, children’s recreation area, tennis courts, BMX and skate facility, disc golf course and woodland. Located at the eastern end of the seafront, Princes Park has a children’s playground with paddling pool, cafe, bowls and a large lake, noted for its swans.

Gatwick is the nearest airport – just under an hour away – and Heathrow is around an hour and a half away from Eastbourne. We also collect students from Stansted Airport and London City and from the Eurostar train stations of Ashford, Ebbsfleet and St Pancras.
