Getting to Beer & Cider by the Sea by rail

Arriving to the Beer and Cider Festival by train? Good news, the train station is only a 20 minute walk to The Western Lawns. When you get off the train at Eastbourne railway station, turn left and follow through the shopping precinct (Terminus Road) and at the end of the road turn right onto the seafront (Grand Parade). The Western Lawns is a short walk from here on your left hand side.

Cycling to the event? If you are cycling to the festival from the East of the Pier, there will be cycle paths along the promenade of the seafront. Unfortunately past Eastbourne Pier there are no cycle paths and you will have to use the road. The nearest bike racks to The Western Lawns are at Eastbourne's Lifeboat Museum.
