The Kursaal, Bexhill EPW000121

THE KURSaL, de la Warr Parade, Bexhill, Sussex, photographed in 1920. The Kursaal or " Cure Hall" was built in 1896 as Bexhills first entertainment pavilion, the closest thing to a pier the town ever had. It was renamed the Pavilion after the first world war. It was closed in 1936, shortly after the de la Warr Pavilion (350m to the West) was opened in 1935. The site, near the war memorial, is now occupied by the sailing club. The terrace behind remains, including the Normanhurst Hotel. EPW000121 Aerofilms Collection (see Links)

EDITORS COMMENTS
"This photograph, EPW000121 from the Aerofilms Collection at Historic England, offers a breathtaking aerial view of The Kursaal located on Bexhill's De la Warr Parade in Sussex, England. Dating back to 1896, The Kursaal, also known as "Cure Hall," was Bexhill's first entertainment pavilion and the closest thing to a pier the town ever had. The name "Kursaal" was derived from the German word for "cure hall," reflecting the belief that the seaside air and entertainment provided therapeutic benefits. The image captures the grandeur of the building, with its distinctive red-tiled roof and white facade, standing proudly against the backdrop of the coastline and the vast expanse of the sea. The terrace, adorned with elegant columns, stretches out towards the water's edge, inviting visitors to enjoy the picturesque views and the salty sea air. The Kursaal's history is intertwined with that of its neighbor, the de la Warr Pavilion, which was opened in 1935, just a short distance to the west. The Kursaal, which had been renamed the Pavilion after the First World War, was closed in 1936, making way for the more modern and grand de la Warr Pavilion. Today, the site of The Kursaal is occupied by the sailing club, while the terrace and the Normanhurst Hotel behind it remain as reminders of Bexhill's rich past." This photograph is a testament to the history and charm of The Kursaal and the seaside town of Bexhill, offering a glimpse into the past and the evolution of coastal entertainment. The aerial perspective provides a unique and captivating view, inviting us to imagine the experiences of those who once visited this iconic building.
