Brighton's Pool Valley bus station is located in the heart of Brighton, conveniently located for anybody arriving in the city, being close to Brighton beach and pier, the station is surrounded by all of the city's attractions including shops, restaurants and historical sights but is more like an open air bus parking bay than a formal bus station.
The station serves both local and national destinations. The local destinations include the University of Brighton and University of Sussex campuses (you need to walk 100 metres to the Old Steine where you can catch a bus direct to the University), as well as attractions further afield, such as Beachy Head (Eastbourne), and the resorts of Bognor Regis and Worthing.
