Brighton with Hove were separate towns until 1997 when they were joined together to form the city of Brighton and Hove. Originally Brighton was a small fishing village but today is the most populated seaside resort in the UK and additionally attracts 8 million tourists a year. It has the worlds oldest operating electric railway which runs from near the Aquarium on the Promenade to Black Rock which is near to Brighton Marina – the UK's largest.
The town really took off as a seaside destination when Prince George came to the coast to drink seawater as a cure for his neck! I'm sure he would have preferred a thermos flask on the promenade to a swig of saltwater! He had the famous Royal Pavilion, pictured to the left, remodelled from an old farmhouse that stood here originally into the extravagant Taj-Mahal style building which it is today. It's now a theatre and concert venue where famously ABBA won the Eurovision song contest.
It's often called ‘London by Sea’, because of it's easy access to the capital and where we also have a London Stairlift office from which we can give you the best stairlifts prices in Sussex.

Eastbourne is primarily a tourist resort though your relative might have retired here to enjoy the “sunniest place in all of Britain,” and that's official as it holds the record for the highest recorded amount of sunshine in a month, 383.9 hours in July 1911.

The seafront retains its old-time air as it is fronted by Victorian hotels and only a few shops. This is because the area is still owned by the Duke of Devonshire who owns Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, and who wants it kept as it is.

If your relative wants things kept as they are and to remain in the home they love you may need Sussex stairlifts prices or information on new or reconditioned lifts without obligation so why not call Castle Comfort Stairlifts for free on 0800 007 6959 24 hours or go to their website at

Hastings is known for having Europe's largest beach-based fishing fleet. It also, like Brighton, developed into a seaside resort in the Victorian era. The town unusually boasts not just one but two lifts (one of these is pictured) to carry passengers up the steep slope overlooking the Old Town. It is now the steepest funicular in the UK.(Does this mean it's funny? If you want a laugh try our stairlift cartoons site)

The neighbouring West Hill Cliff Lift, helps people access Hastings Castle and the Smugglers Adventure in St. Clements Caves, which unfortunately are not wheelchair accessible, unlike our Castle Comfort Centre showroom which is easily accessible and fully complies with the Disability Discrimination Act. Do you?

Bexhill on Sea is a popular place for the retired and in deed someone who retired here made it possible for you to be reading these words on a computer screen. John Logie Baird designed the first television whose original invention was adapted to produce the VDU screens used for computers.

Bexhill is also the birthplace of motor racing in the UK holding its first race in 1902 along the front. This was part of the towns plans to become a fashionable resort, headed by Earl De La Warr and included building the De La Warr Pavilion alongside the colonnade pictured up above.

  1. Hello Keith,

    I was excited to open my mail today and find that I had recieved a copy of the Castle Comfort Clarion!

    It’s a good mail out you produce, it was nice to learn about the extras your company does to help the elderly around your area, reading Dolly Aston makes you realise how isolated people can be!?!

    As ever I hope your well.

    1. Lord Lucan stayed overnight in Uckfield after disappearing from London - allegedly. I wonder whose stairs he hid under ! And did he get a lift out of town from a local ?
