Coming to Eastbourne
Taxis and private hire vehicles use the same routes into Eastbourne as cars, buses and coaches.
The key approach to Eastbourne from London is the A22 (journey time 1½ - 2 hours).
An alternative approach from London and the M25 is the M23/A23 and onto the A27, which is also the main route from the West, by-passing Brighton.
From the Newhaven, Dover or Folkestone Channel Ports your driver should take the A259.
If you are travelling from the North and East your driver should use the M25 and the Dartford Tunnel.
