Sovereign Harbour

About

The biggest composite Marina in Nothern Europe, Sovereign Harbour is a great walk with stunning yachts, wildlife and five harbours and beaches to explore. This walk explores the inner and outer harbours, lock gates and beach at Langney Point, whilst also giving a glimpse of the North, West and South harbours.

Starting at the free car park by the North Harbour, this walk takes approximately one hour or longer if you wish to explore the other harbours. 

Starting point: Harbour Quay. To get to the next point, walk along Harbour Quay towards the boat yard. There are public toilets just after the boat yard on the right. Turn right into The Waterfront complex and inner harbour just after the Seasons bistro.
