ESOE organises a full programme of weekend excursions and afternoon and evening social activities. There is something to do or see every day of the week.

This week's Social Programme

Social Activities

We offer a wide range of afternoon and evening activities including sports, local visits, film evenings and quizzes.

On the first evening of each course there is a social evening to give new students a chance to get to know each other and to meet other students already at ESOE.

Local tours during your stay at ESOE may include:

  • Hastings to see the Castle and the Smugglers’ Caves
  • Bodiam Castle and Battle, site of the Battle of Hastings
  • Brighton for shopping and a tour of the picturesque Lanes area
  • Beachy Head and Pevensey Castle, built in Roman times

For more information about what to do in Eastbourne, see Visit Eastbourne.

Weekend Excursions

We organise a variety of full day excursions at weekends throughout the year. These excursions can be booked and paid for when you are at ESOE. They include:

  • London
  • Canterbury & Leeds Castle
  • Stratford Upon Avon
  • Windsor & Hampton Court
  • Bath & Stonehenge
  • Cambridge
  • Oxford

For details of these beautiful and historic cities, see: www.visitbritain.com

In addition to organising excursions ourselves, to be able to offer you more choices, we also offer tours by 2 local companies - UK Study Tours and Discovery Tours - who specialise in tours for overseas students.
