There will be no train service to Lewes on bonfire night

Buses will be your best bet


Southern Rail has announced that no trains will be stopping at Lewes station – as well as London Road, Falmer, Moulsecoomb and Glynde on Saturday November 5th.

Southern has not organised rail replacement bus services either.

The RMT declared strikes for Friday 4th and Saturday November 5th, with normal services scheduled to resume on Sunday November 6th.

Visitors to this year’s famous bonfire will need to organise alternative transportation to the event.
