Coach and Group Travel

Steyning looks forward to welcoming your group

Welcome to Steyning!

Only 6 miles from the coast and 12 miles from Brighton we have so much to offer the day, half day or short stop visitor. 

The historic market town centre offers a range of independent shops along with a selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

There are a selection of self-guided walks and trails available within the town and nearby countryside as well as really good access to the beautiful South Downs National Park.

The local museum and a Grade 1 listed Norman church are of particular interest whilst in nearby Bramber there is the historic St Mary’s House and the ruins of Bramber Castle available to visit.

See our events page to plan your tour to coincide with one of our many special events. The first Saturday of each month sees the Steyning Farmers Market whilst there are several annual events which take place throughout the year including the Steyning & District Food & Drink Festival and the Steyning Festival.

See below for ideas of itineraries which could be arranged.

Coach Drop Off & Parking

Coaches can drop off and pick up passengers at the High Street bus stops in Steyning and Bramber, both of which have lay-bys. Free public conveniences are available in Steyning and Bramber; in Steyning they are situated at the High Street bus shelter and include a disabled-friendly facility, a men’s urinal and a separate ladies’ toilet. In Bramber there is also a public toilet as part of the bus shelter, open Fridays to Sundays.

Steyning and Bramber both have enclosed bus shelters for inclement weather and seating for those who need it.

We have arranged for a free coach parking space at Fletcher’s Croft Car park (BN44 3XZ) where there are further toilets at The Steyning Centre. There is also a coach parking space in the lay-by on the access road to Fletcher’s Croft which is now bookable. Bookings for either space at Fletcher’s Croft must be made at least one working day in advance through the Parish Council office on 01903 812042 to ensure the spaces are coned off.
