We've been closed for three months, making some substantial changes to the shop.
If you've visited before, you won't find the same arrangement you might be expecting; if you're new to our shop, you'll find a fantastic array of new and fine press books, along with a distinctive selection of old books. You can read more about the changes by clicking here.
Alfriston is a beautiful South Downs village, located just moments from the A27 between Lewes and Eastbourne in East Sussex.
In your Car
From the main road, turn south at the roundabout near Drusillas Zoo. Driving into the village, you’ll first come to a handy Pay and Display parking lot. But there is also a free car park; keep driving on and, at the Market Square, turn sharply right and sharply right again. (You’ll see Much Ado at this point, next to the Smuggler’s Inne). The entrance to the free lot is just a hundred yards down the road, on your right.
If you use an internet map system, our post code is BN26 5UX.
Trains from London stop at Berwick and at Polegate. Berwick has fewer trains stopping, and has no facility for taxis – but walkers can reach Alfriston in less than an hour. Polegate is further away, but more trains stop there and the station usually hosts a number of taxis.
Trains from Brighton stop at Seaford, and taxis are usually available.
Buses come to Alfriston more rarely. Click here to view a site that incorporates schedules for busses from several places.
We are very fortunate that the award-winning Cuckmere Community Bus, run by volunteers, runs on most weekends. You can consult their schedule by clicking here.
