Cuckmere Community bus / Rider 121 / 123 / 125 / 126




Cuckmere Valley bus services provide an excellent way to visit some great pubs in the Cuckmere Valley, Ouse Valley and the heritage coast of East Sussex. These buses link via the railway stations at Lewes, Seaford, Polegate, Eastbourne and Berwick, or the Brighton and Hove Bus routes 12 and 13 along the coast.


By supporting the community bus and other services, you help protect them for the future as well as helping to protect the environment. Thanks to all the volunteer drivers on the community bus, what a fantastic service they provide!


Not all pubs are necessarily listed below and it is always worth checking the pub web sites and review sites before you decide where to try. Each will have its own attraction or feature to suit your interests. Some of these pubs provide overnight accommodation, so why not make it a short break?
