“Great bus tour”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The bus tour takes you from Princes Park, Eastbourne Pier and seafront to Beachy Head, Birling Gap, East Dean and back again. It's good value for the £7.50 adult fare (as at May 2013) and has an interesting commentary.

Do take time to stop at one of more of the stops (it is hop on & off). Birling Gap has a good National Trust café which has been refurbished (new visitor centre opens in 2014) and great views of Seven Sisters chalk cliffs with access to the beach, East Dean is a nice village with a pub and a great Thai restaurant. And of course there is Beachy Head for walks and the scenery.

Wrap up warm if there is a breeze and you plan to sit on the open top deck!

“Hop-on Hop-off open-top bus”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

A fantastic way to reach Beachy Head and Birling Gap (and cafe there) ~ bus drivers are so very nice, helpful and friendly ~ especially Steve! It's a pity the last bus returns to Eastbourne at about 6pm in the Summer.

“Reach Beachy Head the easy way”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

The Hop On, Hop Off Eastbourne 'bus, driven by a friendly driver, takes one to various places in and around Eastbourne, and the audible commentary gives just the right amount of interesting information. Instead of having to climb up to Beachy Head one only needs to climb up to the top deck! Unlike many of these tourist 'buses, it DOES take pensioners' (English) passes.
