For pedestrians the Park is within easy reach of several housing areas and is about 1.75km (1 mile) east of the pier along the Seafront.

The Railway Station is in Eastbourne's Town Centre and regular train services connect with Brighton, Hastings and London seven days a week.  The easiest route to the Park when on foot is Terminus Road, as this will take you to the Seafront, the distance is approximately 2.75km (1.75 miles).

Stagecoach run the buses that serve the roads around Eastbourne and the Park and there are frequent buses connecting with rail services in the Town Centre.  The buses you could catch from the Town Centre are the 99 (every 20 minutes) that travels along the Seafront and has a stop by Fort Fun, the 5a (every 30 minutes) or the Loop (every 12 to 15 minutes).  The 5a and Loop services both stop at the Sovereign Centre.

During the season (usually Easter until the end of September) the Dotto Trains run the whole length of the Seafront.  There are numerous stopping points including the Pier and adjacent to Princes Park.  There are timtables posted at each stop along the route.

Arriving by car from the North visitors should follow the A22 then turn left onto the A2290 and head towards Eastbourne Seafront, this will take you to the big roundabout near the Sovereign Centre.  A right turn here will take you onto Royal Parade with Princes Park Cricket Ground immediately on your right.  There is a large pay and display car park on the left by Fort Fun, although there is on street parking in the vacinity.

Motorists arriving from the Brighton or Hastings areas are likely to use the A259 and, once in town, should head for the Seafront east of the Pier.
