Go-Ahead Group Brighton Coaster Buses

Coaster 12 Brighton - Eastbourne

One of the most scenic bus routes in all of England

The best way to get between Brighton, Newhaven, Seaford and Eastbourne is the Coaster - whether for work, shopping or an evening in Brighton - the last bus back isn’t until after 11pm all week. It’s also a fantastic way to get out and about in the fresh air and enjoy what is probably the finest coastal scenery in the south east. Whether it’s a gentle stroll or an invigorating walk, there are spectacular views everywhere. And you don’t have to retrace your steps - catch another bus further along! Or just sit upstairs and watch all that magnificent scenery from the comfort of your bus seat.

Smart, stylish, comfortable, eco-friendly double-deck buses run up to every 10 minutes Mondays to Saturdays, every 15 minutes on Sundays.

For a faster journey use the 12X buses, which are limited stop between Brighton and Seaford, every 30 minutes on Mondays to Saturdays. New buses on the route are fitted with Free WiFi.

They have wide doors with a stepfree entrance, a level floor downstairs and fabulous views from the big picture windows upstairs. We should all be using our cars less, particularly when there is a good alternative. Add in parking problems and cost, and you can see that going by Coaster makes sense.

Between Seaford and Eastbourne the views are spectacular, and there are plenty of things to see and do to enjoy a great day out in this magnificent corner of Sussex.

Seven Sisters Visitors’ Centre is a good start to finding out about the area. They can advise you of the best walks to suit your interests, ability and how much time to allow. And there’s a marvellous café!
Open daily until the end of October & from April, weekends only November - March

East Dean has a large village green, an ancient church with a Saxon tower, the famous Tiger Inn (described as idyllic by The Observer newspaper) and the Hikers Rest coffee and gift shop. At the top of the hill on the Brighton side of the village is the ancient church of St Mary the Virgin dating from Saxon times.
