Getting out and about

Traveline South East can help you plan your public transport journey.


A Southdowns Discovery Ticket is a cost-effective way to travel by bus across the South Downs National Park and beyond in the South of England at just £16 per day for a family of five, or £8.50 for an adult and £7 for a child (5-15 years old). You can hop on and off, but for shorter local journeys the bus companies’ own tickets may be cheaper.
