Great wheelchair access around Eastbourne's harbour waterfront and cafes

We love going to The Waterfront for a walk and a coffee or lunch. The pathways around the harbour are very accessible for my husband's wheelchair. Lots of blue badge parking... read more

You need a car to access this area. A bit like Brighton Marina but with more restaurants - good if you are a foody person. From what I can remember a nice reasonably priced Chinese restaurant on two floors and some lovely gift/card shops and nautical themed shops that offer times of the tides. Plenty of parking and another retail... More

A short drive up the coast, behind a horrible little net of intersections and between rows and rows of ugly apartments battered by the sea and forgotten by all but the developer that built them, is the Marina. Yes it has boats. And if you have money and what a cold, lonely existence next to a scruffy basin and a... More

We love going to The Waterfront for a walk and a coffee or lunch. The pathways around the harbour are very accessible for my husband's wheelchair. Lots of blue badge parking spaces in the car park which can be busy at weekends and special events. There is a public accessible toilet and most of the cafes have one. There is... More

Lovely place to walk around enjoying the view of the boats, nearby are some restaurants including a nice harvester, lovely in the summer to sit outside and watch the boats

It is a lovely Marina area with pleny of eateries, but very few shops. Across the way is a retail area with the usual big store names.

The harbour is very nice, with various places to eat and drink, the highlight for me would be the Italian.

Although we had a nice day out , on arrival at the marina we were under whelmed by what was there it didnt meet all of the hype. The shops and the places to eat where your everyday places to eat. It was your typical marina but having said that is nice to look round.

Sovereign Harbour doesn't have as much to see and do as Brighton Marina. There's fewer shops and mainly geared for the nautical trade. However, the best bit has to be looking in envy at the huge boats there, particularly if one is going out or coming in, the lock being a great place to observe it all. There are a... More
