It costs £2.50 entrance fee to get in. It is not good for wheelchairs. My husband went to visit and enjoyed it as it is the historic part that he enjoys.

I am sorry you found it was not good for wheelchairs as a lot of money has been spent on the access ramp/bridge, an internal lift and ramps within the tower. Please e-mail anything of this nature which was not satisfactory to info@seafordmuseum.co.uk

An endless historical record presented in visual terms. Layers of especially local history beautifully displayed. And now with easy access for wheelchairs and the disabled.

Grayson Perry has given it rave reviews and I can see why. Disabled access in a Martello tower. Easy parking. Small and personal. Lots of variety. Loved the exhibition of everything washed up on the beach. The tiny portions people ate must account for the...More

Great for those born between 1920 & 1960. There is much to see including a video of how the beach has been altered to protect the town. Many items will make you say "my gran had one of those". Very fascinating and worth taking your...More

This is very interesting more so to local residents, or those with an interest in maritime history. When you walk along the beach, you will want to stop and have a look at it.

Wonderful to be in a Martello tower as a museum! For me Seaford means a lot as my grandfather is mentioned there, as a Fireman! So interesting and lovely to see how our childhood was like! Be even better when the can afford the disabled...More
