About Us

Experienced Hosts



Hello and welcome. My name is Robert Hawkins and I am the founder of Eastbourne Cultural Tours (ECT) with my wife Uni. We are a family run tour operator, specialising in arranging tailor made tours for overseas visitors, with my own personal experience and education being highly focused within the Travel and Tourism industry. I am a fully qualified TEFL English Teacher and also a registered Welcome Host. As a family we have also looked after many International visitors coming to the U.K. in order to study English and with my personal experience within the tour industry this has given us all a valuable insight into the needs and requirements for clients visiting the UK to study or just for a short vacation.

Historical/Cultural Tours


Our guests will stay in the beautiful seaside town of Eastbourne with pre-vetted host families or a local hotel by the sea (depending on individual client or group requirements). Tours of the local area are included with all our tour packages as well as day excursions to popular tourist destinations such as the City of London, Brighton and Eastbourne. We also visit some of the most popular tourist attractions such as The Harry Potter Studio Tour and Stonehenge.

As part of our service we can offer pre-planned packages or tailor made trips depending on your needs and requests.

Unforgettable Experiences


At ECT we pride ourselves on providing the best quality service possible for our guests and will go above and beyond to ensure every guest is well cared for the duration of the trip. Our goal is to provide the perfect environment to ensure trips are educational but also enjoyable. During the Autumn and Winter seasons we can also provide special trips to try winter sports such as Curling and a visit to the world famous Hyde Park Winter Wonderland.
