Seaford is a genteel town with a colourful past. It was once a thriving port, earning Cinque Port privileges as a limb of Hastings. Smuggling and ship wrecking were rife, with wreckers nicknamed ‘Seaford Shags’. Seaford is situated in a beautiful location presiding over the wide sweep of Seaford Bay under the distinctive chalk landmark of Seaford Head.
Situated a short walk from Seaford train station and close to cafes and shops, Seaford beach is a great place to visit for a fresh blast of sea air or a quick play on the stones. Peppered with brightly painted beach huts and a couple of seafront cafes, the beachfront is unadulterated seaside fun.
