How to Reach Steyning

Steyning is 10 miles from Brighton in the county of West Sussex in South East England.

If you travel from outside the UK the nearest airport is London Gatwick. It is 34 miles / 55 kilometres from Steyning and it should take about 40 minutes by car via the A23. Taxis are available from the airport. Alternatively you could take a train from Gatwick Airport to Shoreham-by-Sea (just 5 miles from Steyning) then pick up a local taxi just outside the station.

London Heathrow is 53 miles / 85 kilometres away. You can drive to Steyning via the A24.

If you are coming from France the nearest port is Newhaven – east of Brighton. This is 26 miles / 42 kilometres away and trains run from Newhaven to Shoreham-by-Sea.

You can also take a ferry from France or Spain to Portsmouth which is 41 miles / 66 kilometres distance from Steyning. You can catch a direct train from Portsmouth to Shoreham-by-Sea station. It takes just over an hour.

Travel from Steyning

Steyning has an hourly bus service (no 2) to both the local station and coast at Shoreham-by-Sea which runs until late most evenings. There is also an hourly bus service (no 100) which stops at Pulborough Station, Pulborough Wild Brooks nature reserve and historic Elizabethan Parham House.

Brighton is just 10 miles away. To travel to there I suggest parking in Shoreham-by-Sea then catching a train. The journey just over 10 minutes and there are up to 6 trains an hour. If you drive I recommend parking at Withdean Stadium – which is free – then catching a no 27 bus into the city.

There are trains from Shoreham by Sea to London every 30 minutes. The journey takes an hour and a quarter. I recommend using the train rather than driving.
