If you are arriving or departing from Brighton by coach or public bus you will almost certainly start or finish your journey at Brighton Pool Valley Coach Station, the central bus station, only moments away from the beach and pier.
The bus station serves both local areas and the rest of the UK. Locals can make use of services to University of Brighton and University of Sussex campuses, as well as attractions further afield, such as Beachy Head (Eastbourne), and the resorts of Bognor Regis and Worthing. National Express coaches connect Brighton to the capital city of London (arriving at Victoria coach station) in just two hours at a fraction of the price of rail, making for a relatively inexpensive travel. From London travelers can spread out to just about anywhere in the UK.
