You can walk here from the house. Go across the lock and walk along the beach to the west towards Pevensey bay then pick up the foot path across the fields to the castle. See my map in the guide book. There is a good pub called the Oak and Castle Inn next door.

Brighton is great for a fun day out. Shopping in the quirky Lanes area, great restaurants and bars, a fun fair on the pier are just a few of the attractions. Best to go on the train from Eastbourne as parking is a nightmare and expensive. All the attractions are a short walk from the railway station.
