Seaford is a quiet and friendly suburban seaside town on the coast of East Sussex with a population of about 23,000. Just 4 miles from an accessible ferry service to and from Dieppe, Seaford lies in a bay between the port of Newhaven and the beautiful Seven Sisters cliffs. Exactly halfway between Eastbourne and Brighton, Seaford is often overlooked in favour of other nearby towns such as Lewes and Newhaven. Its status as a seaside resort has died away in modern times, meaning tourists are rare, and there is little to do in the town itself for the traveller. However, the long pebbly beach, laid-back atmosphere, proximity to Brighton (10 miles) and various walks and nature spots makes it a nice place to base a trip around East Sussex for a few days. For European visitors on the ferry from Dieppe, it is frankly a more appealing place to stay than the rather ugly, industrial Newhaven.
The main town area is small enough to walk around, however anyone wishing to visit outlying areas or places of interest close to Seaford (for example the Seven Sisters cliffs) may wish to take one of the circular bus routes or cycle.
Seaford Head & Seven Sisters - these cliffs overlook the town and are easily accessible for signposted cliff walks. Beautiful views of the English Channel, Seaford Bay and the countryside.
Tide Mills - Haunting ruins of an old village that was forcibly abandoned prior to WW2, where it was used to house Canadian troops. It has been preserved as a free open-air museum/monument to the old village.
