The Newhaven Story

An Introduction to Newhaven

Newhaven is a Channel ferry port at the mouth of the river Ouse, sitting on the edge of the South Downs National Park, just nine miles from Brighton.

Although our town doesn’t have a large population, it is significant because of its international ferry links to Dieppe, the port operations, its rail connectivity with two stations, and as a place of industry in a predominantly rural area.

Newhaven is a fantastic juxtaposition of marine, coastline, countryside and industry, and it is their relationship in such a small area that gives the town and its environs such a distinct character and such potential.
