Getting in and around

Level access:

The best place to park is on Basin Road, where you can find two ramps to access the park, although it is very busy at weekends. Beware, if you park on the grass you are likely to be clamped. You can access the lagoon park from two entrances off the Kingsway. You can also access from the promenade. Travelling west towards Shoreham on the promenade the lagoon can be accessed via an entrance next to Hove Deep Sea Fishing Club next to the luxury houses known locally as 'millionaires row'. The promenade stops here which means you would have to travel on the busy road if you wanted to travel further towards Shoreham.


Accessible Toilets: The V-bites cafe is at the east end of the lagoon. The public toilets are round the back of this building and while the male and female toilets each have two steps up to the entrance, there is an accessible toilet with permanent ramped and railed access, you may need to ask for the key as it is sometimes locked.

Rooms Available: At the east end of the lagoon there is a large childrens play park and paddling pool. There is a new skateboard park that is quite popular and busy at weekends. The park is very near the road, though there are walls all around the park not all the entrances are gated. The childrens play area is secure however..

Heading Loop: No

My Experience

Hove Lagoon has a resident herd of swans and is also the home to Lagoon Watersports where they teach windsurfing, dinghy sailing and kayaking. (They have a sister club at the Marina for powerboats and yachting). For details on Lagoon Watersports www.lagoonwatersports.co.uk They also have webcams so that you can see what the weather is doing! On www.lagoonwatersports.co.uk/webcam.aspx Weekends usually attract a lot of model boat enthusiasts. The promenade from Hove lagoon all the way to Brighton seafront is totally flat. Accessible toilets are situated next to the bowling green, the King Alfred leisure centre and Hove lawns.
