House Removals Newhaven
Newhaven lies at the mouth of the River Ouse on the English Channel coast.
The main landmark in the town is the Newhaven Fort. The Palmerston fort was built in the 19th century to defend the harbour at Newhaven. The Victorian Fortress and its rabbit warren of passages built in to the chalk cliffs is scrupulously maintained and has made it through two World Wars. Newhaven Fort is an excellent day out for all the family.
Other areas of interest include the South Downs National Park, where families can walk, cycle or horseback ride. Furthermore, the cliffs that run from Brighton to Newhaven are of special geological interest as they contain many fossils.
Newhaven town centre provides a mix of independent and smaller high-street retailers. There are supermarkets, the local Post Office and a mix of angling shops, jewellers, crafts and gifts.
