The Lookout is here!

We’re delighted to confirm that The Lookout at Lepe has opened!

May 11 2018

The Lookout

The new restaurant and Park reception opened just in time for the sunny bank holiday. It was wonderful to share the new building with so many visitors over the weekend and a huge thanks to all of you for your patience as we adjust to our new home!

As with all new buildings, there are a few changes still to happen – so do keep popping back to enjoy these features as we settle in!

Teapot

In the meantime, there is still much taking shape at Lepe. We’re working on the landscaping around The Lookout and our contractors have moved to a new temporary home outside the old buildings as they work on the demolition. In addition:

  • the fully accessible boardwalk to the new building is being finalised
  • cycling hoops  are being installed so that visitors can securely lock their bikes onto them whilst they take a break
  • the outside toilet block is being refurbished

We are currently looking to extend our opening hours to cater for more people visiting Lepe during the summer.

Saying this, we appreciate that access to the site can be tricky. However, you can access the new building either via steps and/or the slope between the beach and cliff top levels. Plus, there are temporary accessible toilets at beach level for those unable to access the new building.

If you have any concerns, please call the team ahead of your visit to see how we can help you.
