Here is a choice either you can walk back to the Cross straight over into East St walk the length of that road cross Market Road and into the Hornet the Eastgate Inn (Fullers & GBG) is on your right then cross the road for the final pub – Hornet Ale House (Micro Pub) or from the Chichester Inn turn left out of the pub left into Avenue De Chartres cross the road and catch a Stagecoach 700 (10 minute frequency) or Stagecoach 51 to Chichester Market then just cross Market road as above. Given that there are 9 pubs on this crawl it is unlikely anyone will do them all, so please feel free to miss the odd one and move on to another one a bit further down the line.

For further info on these trips phone Max on 01243 828394 or email

Please be aware that due to this programme being planned months in advance that bus time tables could be changed or, worse still, cut completely by the time any trip actually takes place. Also, the ever continuing industrial action being taken by the rail unions on Southern Rail also means, that trips can be completely impossible at worst or risky at best. This can mean other trips are substituted at very short notice. Any queries – alternatively phone Max on 01243 828394. Local Bus Time Tables can be found at: Brighton & Hove Compass Bus, Metro Bus , Seaford & Dist. Stagecoach Sussex Bus
