|Route outline (key)|
The B2106 runs along the sea front in Eastbourne.
It starts on the A259 whose street name at this point is bizarrely Seaside, despite its being a few blocks inland. Originally the B2106 started by heading east along Winchelsea Road then south along Sidley Road. This section was destroyed by the building of Princes Park and so the B2106 now starts further south by going along Beach Road before it turns right at an unsigned TOTSO onto Sidley Road. At the end of this road it jinks left then right onto the sea front at Royal Parade.
The B2106 passes the Redoubt, now a military museum, on the left-hand side and the road name changes to Marine Parade since we are now running along the seafront itself. Beyond the pier, where the road name changes again (to Grand Parade), we pass the south-western end of the very brief B2107 (Terminus Road) on our right.
On reaching the bandstand the road ahead becomes the B2103 and we TOTSO right into Devonshire Place: a dual carriageway with most of the space in the central reservation being used for car parking. At the far end of this road is the Memorial Roundabout, which is where the B2106 ends, back on the A259.
