Brighton to Eastbourne bus route named one of UK's most scenic

The Coaster Route 12/12A/12X and 13X, Brighton to Eastbourne bus route has been named one of the UK's most scenic by Snaptrip citing some of the best scenery on the south coast, sandwiched between the South Downs National Park on one side and the English Channel on the other. It highlights the Seven Sisters, Birling Gap, spotting paddleboarders on Cuckmere Haven, stopping for a walk on Telscombe Cliffs or enjoying a drink in one of East Dean’s many rustic pubs.

Nick Hill, Commercial Director at Brighton & Hove Buses says: "The Coaster routes boast some of the most breath-taking views in the UK. With the rolling hills of the downs on one side and the open sea on the other, you can enjoy a whole range of natural wonders as you journey between Brighton and Eastbourne for just £2: A saving of £3.50 per trip.”
