An old fishing village near Hastings, St. Leonard’s suddenly found itself at the centre of a tourist boom during the 19th century after builder James Burton decided to create a smaller version of Brighton.

His vision created a resort with elegant Regency villas and modest terraces.

Its double-tiered promenade is shared with Hastings.
