Allchorn Pleasure Boats
Allchorn Pleasure Boats
Currently out of season but usually operated from this spot from May to September. During that time a small makeshift wooden jetty is erected for embarkation. When tides a too low then the company uses a World War Two DUKW to ferry the passengers out to the boat. Allchorns has been in business for 140 years and was one of the first and now last of the pleasure cruise businesses running from the beach. Cruises tend to go past Beachy Head. Beyond the beach is the facade of the Burlington Hotel built in the early 1850s and one of the family names of the Duke of Devonshire on whose land the resort was developed.
