Why Move to St Leonards-on-Sea?
St Leonards-on-Sea (commonly known as St Leonards) is a town and seaside resort in the Borough of Hastings, East Sussex, a beautiful county which lays along the south coast of the UK.
Geographically it is hard to separate St Leonards from nearby Hastings. The two towns are so close they are almost one. The original part of the town was laid out in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. A place originally packed with elegant Regency houses designed for the well-off; it includes a central public garden, a hotel, assembly rooms, and a church.
Since its early days, St Leonards has extended well beyond these original designs.
However, the original town still exists within it and more importantly, the original creator’s dream was well and truly realised as St Leonards is still an extremely popular holiday destination to this day. Home to an energetic and creative community, St Leonards is certainly individual with more than its fair share of independent and innovative businesses alongside lots of wonderful outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy.
Located on its doorstep is the nearby Wealden countryside, where you will find a selection of stunning walks, whilst the St Leonards-on-Sea Marina is arguably one of Britain’s finest sea fronts, another ideal spot for a leisurely stroll. Locals can make use of the many and varied visitor attractions available in the town including its safe and clean beach, making St Leonards a great location to live and also visit.
There are a fair number of London commuters living in the town however, the journey by rail takes around 2 hours so it is on the very edges of what you would call a comfortable commute. By road, the historical town of Hastings sits just over one mile away, with Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, and Brighton all reachable via the A27.
This bustling vibrant town by the ocean, with its attractive vintage vibes, still manages to retain a pretty, peaceful feel that Burton envisaged all those years ago. No wonder St Leonards on Sea has become such a popular relocation destination.
