Disabled access to the Centre

The Beacon is wheelchair accessible with automatic doors into the Centre and five passenger lifts providing access to and from the car park. Disabled parking bays are located on the 2nd and 4th floors of the car park, adjacent to the customer lifts.

Accessible Toilets

Disabled toilet facilities are available adjacent to Shades and are operated via the RADAR Key system.

RADAR Keys can be purchased from the Shopmobility Office.

Baby changing facilities

Baby changing facilities are available alongside our disabled toilets.

Changing Places

Thousands of people need Changing Places toilets to enable them to get out and about to enjoy the day-to-day activities many of us take for granted. The Beacon is proud to offer the first Changing Places facilities in Eastbourne.


*Service temporarily suspended

The award winning Eastbourne Shopmobility is a registered charity which provides manual and powered wheelchairs and scooters to customers with limited mobility.

The dedicated team of volunteers will ensure that you are confident about using one of the vehicles and then there is no reason why you cannot enjoy the benefits of The Beacon, the town centre or even the seafront!

As Shopmobility is very popular it is advisable to pre-book on 01323 439585 or just call into the office for more details. The office is located adjacent to the main doors by the mall entrance to Marks & Spencer.
