The Seaford Bay Exercise Path starts and finishes at Splash Point at the eastern end of the sea front, beyond the Martello Tower, although it can be joined from any part of the seafront or at the car park at Tidemills on the A259 near Bishopstone. Bishopstone railway station is close by as are Brighton & Hove Buses running from Brighton, Seaford and Eastbourne again along the A259. For part of its length it follows the Vanguard Way.
The route is some 5 miles if undertaken in full, but can be shorter by the simple expedient of catching a bus back to the town from Tidemills bus stop. The path is flat for its whole length and can be undertaken with push chairs although part of the path may be covered in shingle for short lengths between the Sailing Club and Tidemills. Much of the path is also a designated cycle route. The railway crossing at Tidemills has been improved so that it can now be used with wheelchairs and prams. There are two seafront kiosks on the seafront and the Sailing Club has a cafe. (On some days the Sailing Club is restricted to members only). The route is easy to follow and is well signposted. The western edge of the route adjoins the Ouse Estuary Nature Reserve, which allows access to the wetlands stretching over to Newhaven for further walking adventures. The path is well signposted and so route directions are not necessary if you follow the links we will tell you about the area and its history.
