Sovereign Harbour
Holiday Travel Guide

Sovereign Harbour which includes a river or creek and a bridge

Stroll around the harbor-side walkways, admire the gleaming vessels moored at this marina and relax over a meal at a waterfront restaurant.

Sovereign Harbour, or the Waterfront as it’s also known, is a large marina complex encompassing four harbors and a retail and dining development. Browse the shops, walk along the waterfront paths and watch yachts and other boats coming and going at this privileged waterside setting.

This harbor development is one of the best places to shop, eat and stroll in Eastbourne. The relaxing atmosphere and contemporary style makes it popular among locals and visitors alike. Wander around the marina and inspect the beautiful boats docked here. Peer over the edge and try to spot fish swimming in the water below.

Look for locks and bridges, which often open and close to let incoming and outgoing vessels through. If you want to get out on the water, take a 30-minute boat tour. Relax aboard the boat as it cruises around the harbor. Listen to on-board commentary revealing interesting facts about the development.

Browse the shops and scour the shelves for gifts and souvenirs. Among the retail outlets based here are high-end chains and independent boutiques selling women’s and men’s fashions. A wedding store offers bridal fashions, while the Gallery is stocked with quirky gifts and souvenirs.

When hunger hits, select from several quayside cafés, bars and restaurants. Available cuisines range from Thai and Indian to Italian and American. The bars are particularly lively on sunny days. When the skies are blue, patrons flock to the outdoor terraces to watch the boats and the people coming and going. If the weather turns bad, find shelter in the harbor’s cinema.

The Waterfront frequently hosts special events, including live music performances, charity walks and children’s entertainment. Check ahead to see if anything is happening during your visit.

Sovereign Harbour is located on the seafront, east of Eastbourne town center. Drive to the area and use the free parking. Boat tours run regularly, leaving every 45 minutes from late morning on a daily basis.

Our first break for a long time!
"Lovely location and with the exception of one day we had unexpectedly good weather! The walks around the harbour, towards Pevensey Bay and into Eastbourne were just what we wanted. The bathrooms and kitchen were immaculate but parts of the bedrooms and lounge were dusty e.g bedside tables/t.v table. ..."
