Sovereign Park




Prince William Parade,
BN22 7LQ


This Park aims to preserve some of the shingle beach habitat that was once common along the south coast until the increase in urban development and other pressures. There is a picnic site equipped with tables at the west end of the Park. The central and east areas are left as semi-natural habitat and access is available but not encouraged due to trampling damage of the flora present. A refreshment kiosk is open at the east end during the season.

Parking on adjacent road or Sovereign Leisure Centre pay and display. Served by several nearby bus routes. Two and a half miles from Eastbourne railway station. National Cycle Network route 21 runs near the Park with a cycle path on the adjacent promenade. Wheelchair access along surfaced paths around the perimeter of the central shingle area. Toilets available (not sure of times) at the east end of the Park adjacent to the refreshment kiosk
