About Us:

Seaford Museum is in  Martello Tower no.74,  at the eastern end of Seaford seafront. Often described as the Tardis by its visitors, there is a deceptive 5,000 square feet of display area which includes the roof with cannon, entrance floor with museum shop, the lower floor of the tower and the covered dry moat area. We now have "step free" access from the street level to our main exhibition levels.

The museum records Seaford's long history from its days as a Cinque Port but also appeals to all age groups and all members of the family with displays including shops, tableaux and a fascinating collection of material from pre-historic times to the 20th century. There is a General Store, Dressmakers Parlour, the contents of toy, chemist, ironmonger and photographer's shops as well as Victorian schoolroom, Victorian kitchen and wartime kitchen. There are also collections of domestic appliances covering the first half of the 20th century, office machinery from early typewriters and copiers to computers and a particularly large collection of radios and television sets. There is a working model of Seaford railway station in 1926, wartime memorabilia, two figureheads, information on shipwrecks in the area and information on the changing coast including a video of the most recent sea defence work.

This year we are planning to expand our children's half term, summer and Christmas break activity days as well as having special events.

The Museum is run and maintained entirely by volunteers and is supported by some 400 members. The Town Council owns the building (leased on a pepper corn rent) and the society has raised funds to help maintain the grade 2 listed building and install the new bridge and lift to provide step free access.  

Please nominate the Seaford Museum and Heritage Society and help us to continue to improve this important heritage asset
