The elegant Victorian and Edwardian seaside resort of Eastbourne has a long and fascinating history. Local author and historian Kevin Gordon takes the reader on an enlightening and entertaining journey through the town's past, delving beneath the surface to reveal dark deeds and strange tales with long-forgotten facts and amusing stories. Here you'll meet royalty, abusive flower sellers and a bored saint, discover the murderous exploits of a teacher and even rioting salvationists. Secret Eastbourne lifts the lid on the hidden secrets that even many local people don't know.
