Clive Gross Photography: St Leonards on Sea

St Leonards on Sea, lying to the west of Hastings and now part of the same borough, was originally built as an exclusive seaside retreat by the famous Victorian architects Decimus and James Burton. Responsible for the Crown House, Royal Victoria Hotel, St Leonards Gardens and many fine surrounding residences, it is a hidden unique architectural gem on the Sussex coast. Having suffered after the demise of the English seaside holiday industry - losing in its wake iconic buildings such as the St Leonards Bathing Pool - it has recently attracted a new wave of residents and regeneration investment. The area also has many quirky passages, alleyways and steps, some of which are featured here. The Art Deco appartment block Marine Court on St Leonards seafront is the subject of an individual gallery in this site.
