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 pass Much Ado as you complete this U-turn – we're 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.

Public Transport

Trains from London stop at Berwick and at Polegate. Berwick has fewer trains stopping, and has no facility for taxis – but from there walkers can reach Alfriston in under 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. Consult their schedule by clicking here.
