How long does it take to get from London to the venue in Eastbourne? Until what time is it possible to leave? And how expensive is that trip?
Railcard?Do you have a railcard? Cos you can get tickets cheaper that way.
I've managed to get a 5 day railcard to Eastbourne for around £30. The prices do get more expensive the closer you book though
Eastbourne is a small town, it's a 10-15 min walk from the train station to the courts. There are many Bed and Breakfast places but the popular ones near Devonshire Park tend to get booked by regular fans from 1 year to the next. It might be worth checking out the Eastbourne Tourist website for info. The tournament is well worth a visit, especially if the weather is good.

I found a bed and breakfast place that was still not booked, and was for a reasonable price, so I am considering that one. 10-15 min. walk is great
I will be comparing it to Rosmalen, which I love to death, so it will have to be really, really good in order to match up
Thanks for the link! That is really helpful :hug:You might also want to check www.southernrailway.com/Daysave
I've never been to Rosmalen but a friend of mine has several times, and he prefers Eastbourne. But I think it's maybe better to say they are both nice tournaments. You are very close to the courts and players. You will also see the players strolling around the town in the evening and in the restaurants. One word of caution - it can be quite windy so make sure to have a warm jacket or similar. If you bring this, you can be sure there will be lots of warm sunshine
Hope this helps you.
