Seaford Beach - Best of England Travel Guides

Seaford Beach

A lovely stroll along the beach

The long stretch of shingle beach at Seaford is a great place to visit in any season. On sunny summer days it is much less crowded than the seafronts at Brighton or Eastbourne and it has an unhurried, relaxed feel. In winter the rough seas make an awesome sight. Parking is free or the walk from the train station is just 10 minutes.

The Martello Tower to the east dates back to 1806 and is home to an excellent museum that includes wartime memorabilia. You also find out about the many shipwrecks that have occurred in the locale. In Medieval times, Seaford was a Cinque Port but a great storm in the 16th century shifted the mouth of the Ouse westwards to Newhaven.
