Hastings and Bexhill Waterfront

A fantastic coastal cycle route ideal for beginners and families. It runs alongside a railway line, linking two existing paths to complete a 5 km traffic-free route from Hastings to Bexhill-on-Sea, offering fantastic seaside views along the way.

Starting in the cosmopolitan city of Hastings, just north of the impressive Hastings Pier, this route travels along the beachfront with sweeping views out to sea.

St Leonards Gardens offer a tranquil oasis in the Maze Hill area of St Leonards, with views to the sea.

As you come into the seaside resort of Bexhill-on-Sea, the traffic-free path ends and you join the De La Warr Parade, which takes you past the beautiful art deco De La Warr Pavilion and onto Egerton Park.

Here you’ll find a refreshment kiosk with outdoor seating, a children’s play zone and a sensory garden.
