An exciting new venture for Bexhill

Our Vision

Safeguarding our current and future coastal environment through learning, knowledge and participation

Maritime Visitor Centre

A new, sustainable and accessible maritime visitor centre, with flexible facilities to accommodate community groups. As well as a new home for the Royal Sovereign Lighthouse tower, the centre will include displays on climate change, maritime artefacts and a cafe.

Royal Sovereign Lighthouse

Trinity House has decommissioned the Royal Sovereign Lighthouse and is currently dismantling the structure. Bexhill Maritime has acquired the lantern tower section and proposes to integrate it within the new Maritime Centre. 

Sea Angling Club

Bexhill Sea Angling Club was founded in 1912, and is an essential part of the heritage of the local community. The Maritime Centre will include a modern, purpose built and significantly larger new home for the club.
