Eastbourne – Helen Garden to Wishtower 2.2m

This end of Eastbourne seafront has a three-tiered prom so you can enjoy a loop using different layers, each with different scenery and character.

I have not included any other seafront walks because no one needs a map to go straight out and back, but this one is here because it makes a very skinny loop.

There are lots of little sets of steps that connect each of the layers to change tier, to vary the route or make the walk shorter. However, if you are using a wheelchair or scooter, you cannot change tier part way, and the middle tier has steps at the Holywell end, so make a loop with the top and bottom tier instead.

Parking: free on street parking at the Holywell end of the seafront and metered parking closer to the town. Public transport: nearby bus stops.
