Hydro Hotel, Eastbourne
The Hydro Hotel boasts a light and airy feel, with large open lounges and high ceilings. Opened in 1885 as a seaside retreat, the hotel has continued to welcome guests for more than 100 years. It retains its Victorian-look to this day and its Art Deco entrance and lobby are a sight to behold. Thanks to its commanding position in a quiet part of town, 120 feet above sea level, guests can benefit from the fresh sea air and find themselves captivated by the inspiring sea views.
Ceremony options include The Coastal Terrace. An outdoor open-sided stone dome located in the hotel's private gardens, overlooking the sea, it has a capacity of 80. If you prefer to be inside, The Drawing Room is an elegant space lined with fine art, which can host 50 loved ones.
The Wedgewood Ballroom is located on the first floor and comes complete with private balcony. It's characterised by its traditional Wedgewood-blue colour scheme and has a private bar and reception area. Here, you can accommodate 100 for the "I dos," 70 for the wedding breakfast, and 100 for the evening bash. Further options for the celebrations include The Garden Suite, The Orangery, and The Meads Room.
