Victorian-era Grandeur by the Sea in East Sussex

Once a hot spot for members of high society, The Grand Hotel maintains plenty of its original seaside splendor. Its front façade—sprawling and replete with columns, arches, and terraces—earned it the nickname “The White Palace.” The hotel offers views not only of the sea, but also of the English Channel and chalk sea cliffs.
