Two Sussex towns have been named among the top 20 rainiest in the UK.

And Eastbourne is one of them!

The other is Hastings.

Britain has long been stigmatised as a rainy nation and even seaside towns get their fair share of showers.

We’ve always been known as The Sunshine Capital.

Eastbourne is ranked 18th in the list.

We get an average of 66mm of rain each month with October the heaviest month for downpours.
