Situated at the mouth of the River Ouse in the beautiful South Downs, Newhaven is an old port town that has retained its maritime roots and become a popular tourist destination. The once thriving commercial harbour has successfully moved with the times and along with its ferry link with Dieppe the waterfront is now a magnet for leisure craft owners, anglers, scuba divers and water-sport enthusiast. This has been boosted by the redevelopment of the quay into a thriving hub of activity that combines quality residences, a state of the art fish market, open spaces with cycle paths and walkways and a new marina boasting abundant moorings.

This area of outstanding natural beauty is a paradise for those wanting a holiday where you can enjoy the great outdoors during the day and relax in charming friendly surroundings in the evening. Newhaven has two major attractions, the spectacular nineteenth century Fort on the cliffs above the town and kid friendly Paradise Park with its dinosaurs and amusements. The town centre has plenty of great shops including high street names and specialist outlets. There is also an excellent market on Thursdays and Saturdays. Dining wise there are plenty of fine restaurants, cafes and pubs that serve bar food. Newhaven also has a full calendar of entertainment to suit all, from theatre to cabaret, live jazz to the Newhaven Symphonic, dance music to hard rock.

A genuinely attractive place in one of the most picturesque locations in Europe, Newhaven has plenty to offer visitors of all ages. With itís laid back atmosphere and easy-going hospitality it is the ideal destination for a relaxing seaside holiday.

Simpson Marine by Chris Knapp
I have a small trail boat with an old Honda outboard. I have been a customer of Simpsons for very many years and always found them friendly and helpful but I did not know they serviced outboards. For the last few years mine has been running rough and stalling. Another dealer has serviced it but there was no improvement. Simpsons have now fixed it and it is running beautifully, as good as new. I am most impressed and will make sure they service it in the future.

Newhaven Marina by Gary
Went into newhaven last weekend to drop off a sick crew member, we rafted up on waiting pontoon to get this frightened lady off the boat, we were met buy mr angry, shouting at us because we didn't berth where he wanted, as said before we were only dropping off. The man told us he runs the marina and not us, which is correct, instead of trying to help us he was going mad. He did not help the situation of the frightened lady. We will not be going back and advise others of mr angry.
