Location

Eastbourne is a resort town on the south east coast of England, 25 miles east of Brighton, famously known for the chalk cliff landmark of Beachy Head.

There are ample road and rail links, the ferry port of Newhaven is a 30 minute drive away during normal traffic conditions whilst Dover is approximately 90 minutes. Gatwick is the nearest airport at 60 minutes in normal traffic, Heathrow is 90 minutes.

Princes Park is situated at the Eastern end of Eastbourne seafront on the landward side of Royal Parade. The post code for Sat-Nav or Google maps is BN22 7PR.

Parking and access to the lake can be found at the junction of Winchelsea Rd and Wartling Rd. The club house is situated in the Northern corner of the lake, and there is ample street parking  in Winchelsea Road and Wartling Road
(see map – Wartling Road is in two sections divided by a water drain which feeds the lake. It can be accessed on the seaward side from the Sovereign Centre roundabout, or from the A259 road locally named Seaside).

Accommodation
At open events free off-road parking is occasionally available for competitors only, subject to demand. There are no facilities for mobile homes, caravans or camping adjacent to the lake, but as a coastal resort Eastbourne is able to offer a wide range of accommodation from guest houses to national hotel chains. There are campsites to the north and east of the town, the nearest are in the Pevensey Bay area accessed by the main A259 road.
