Seaford Beach runs along the front of Seaford. This is a pebble and shingle beach backed by a low sea wall in front of which runs a paved walking path. Towards the eastern end of the beach is an old defensive sea tower known as Martello Tower No.74 within which is the Seaford Museum. The museum explores the history of Seaford from it's time as one of the Cinque Ports onwards.
At the eastern end of the beach is a groyne from which there are views of Seaford Head Cliffs. The South Downs Way proceeds up Seaford Head on the way to Cuckmere Haven Beach via Hope Gap. From there the path diverts inland along Cuckmere River to a bridge before heading back out to coast through Seven Sisters Country Park and over the Seven Sisters cliffs to Beach Head and then finally descending into Eastbourne. This 13-mile long walk is very popular year round, but especially during the summer months.
