What is England's Creative Coast?
England’s Creative Coast (ECC) is an innovative new visitor experience that allows travel trade and Fully Independent Travellers (FITs) from France and The Netherlands to gain inspiration, browse and plan their own bespoke cultural travel itineraries.
New outdoor artworks and cultural adventures will connect the outstanding galleries across the South East’s stunning coastline of Kent, Essex and Sussex, taking in everything from attractions, events and festivals to accommodation, food and drink, for the ultimate creative travel experience.
Who is it aimed at?
England’s Creative Coast is targeted toward the Dutch and French special interest markets, catering for those who enjoy cultural trips combined with those who like the outdoors and want to learn while on a trip. ECC is perfect for those who travel for experiences and like to immerse themselves in the local culture, and is not restricted to a certain age group, everyone from 25 year olds to over 55.
