Places to visit & see along the route


Brighton »

With its cosmopolitan air, oodles of restaurants, hotels, accommodation, feverish nightlife and abundance of culture for visitors and locals, Brighton defies comparison with anywhere else this side of the English Channel.

For centuries it has been regarded as a ‘pleasure dome’, and that’s not about to change. If you love life, this is the place to visit.

Sea Life Centre

Sea Life Centre »

Whilst on your travels, why not go on a fascinating journey through the original Victorian architecture of the oldest operating aquarium in the world. Based opposite the iconic pier, Sea Life Brighton was built in 1872 and features 5,500 mesmerising creatures including inquisitive rays and intelligent octopus.

At Sea Life Brighton you can see them all – from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic. And you’ll be able to get closer to them than ever before.


Newhaven »

Newhaven is a small busy port town at the mouth of the River Ouse and surrounded by the South Downs. It has an active fishing fleet and marina with boats visiting from across Europe.

Conveniently situated between Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne and with easy year round ferry access to France.

Newhaven has attractions for all the family; whether its exploring Paradise Park or the Fort, or just enjoying the beautiful coastal and Downland scenery.


Seaford »

Seaford has a beautiful and envied pebbled beach and, although the landscape has changed dramatically, its history and maritime connections are both obvious and integral to the identity of the town and its inhabitants.

There are local history collections based in the Martello Tower museum and a heritage trail to take visitors on a journey through the town. The Crypt Art Gallery in Seaford contains a 13th Century merchant’s undercroft, enveloped by a contemporary art gallery.

Seaford has a bustling town centre with a thriving leisure centre. Many outdoor activities are available in and around the town, including the Seaford Head golf course, situated on the top of one of the Seven Sisters cliffs.

Seven Sisters

Seven Sisters »

The magnificent Seven Sisters white cliffs are a world-famous image of the English coast. If you want the best view, head for Seaford Head looking east across the River Cuckmere.

East Dean

East Dean »

The villages of East Dean and Friston are located between the coastal towns of Eastbourne and Seaford, half a mile inland from the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters. It has an active and vibrant community.

A fan favourite is the Tiger Inn which has been serving fine ales, wines and food to surrounding residents, farmers, soldiers, walkers, smugglers, lovers and brewers since the 16th century.


Eastbourne »

Feel the energy of endless blue skies, sweeping South Downs countryside, colourful art scene and warm sunshine, charming places to stay, vibrant events and bucket-loads of things to do.

A short break in Eastbourne will leave you feeling re-energised, refreshed and invigorated.
