The day’s main attractions will be based at the inner lay-by and in front of the new Power Station. Entry to this area may be gained via the locks or the lagoon and will be free to all visitors who produce a copy of the Programme. These may be purchased at the Harbour Office from 26 June 2000 or on the day itself – a nominal charge of 50 pence will be made. Designated areas of the port area will be set aside for parking at a rate of £1 per vehicle.

We have hired a bus from Brighton & Hove which will run all day between Kingston Lane, along the A259 and Basin Road South, the ride will be free on production of the "Lucky Programme" – otherwise, a fare of 50 pence will be payable.

Small craft, including our own tug and the ‘Skylark’ will be available to give visitors trips from the Inner lay-by, down the canal and back.

Main attractions confirmed to date are: -
