De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea

The De La Warr Pavilion is a grade I listed building, located on the seafront at Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, on the south coast of England.
The Art Deco and International Style building was designed by the architects Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff and constructed in 1935. Although sometimes claimed to be the first major Modernist public building in Britain, it was in fact preceded by some months by the Dutch-influenced Hornsey Town Hall.

In 2005, after an extensive restoration, the De La Warr Pavilion reopened as a contemporary arts centre, encompassing one of the largest galleries on the south coast of England.

  • Saw royal blood here. Great venue, very intimate and could see the whole gig with no need of screens required. Totally recommend seeing your favourite performers here.
  • Over priced, the art isn't anything special and the coffee shop is really expensive. They improved the food in the past year or so but regardless it's still over priced for what it is. They do some okay free events such as sunset screenings but they are very popular so worth turning up early!
