England's Creative Coast

England’s Creative Coast is a vibrant cultural region, spanning Kent, Essex, East and West Sussex. Here, we have some of the most outstanding galleries, arts organisations, events and festivals in the UK, all featuring work by the world’s foremost artists, littoral towns pulsating with creativity, and a breath-taking 1400km coastline that spans from the Thames Estuary to the English Channel.

In 2020, England’s Creative Coast is launching seven new artworks by leading contemporary artists and the first art digital geocaching tour in the world, to connect these creative places. Experience cultural adventures along this coastline using our specially curated package itineraries that will be released soon featuring art, events, food, drink and accommodation offers, and to plan for your visit next year, when you can enjoy the ultimate travel experience.
