Changing Places toilet

Changing Places are toilets with enough space for disabled people and their carers. We have one on the seafront at Collonade Toilets on Madeira Drive.

Beach Accessible Walkway

The Beach Accessible Walkway is at The Hove Seafront Office, west of the King Alfred Leisure Centre.

The walkway is ideal for allowing wheelchair users, push chairs and those not so steady on their feet greater access onto the beach. 

The walkway is close to the King Alfred Car Park, which has disabled parking bays opposite the beach.

The Undercliff Walk

The Undercliff Walk runs from behind Asda in Brighton Marina to the Brighton & Hove city boundary at Saltdean.

The path is a total of 3 miles long. Both pedestrians and cyclists can use the Undercliff Walk.
