  • Bus from Brighton Station (1.1 miles)

    On foot: you can walk from the station to Starlings Guest House. It takes around 20-25 minutes from the station.

    By bus: the number 7 bus stop is outside the front of station and buses run every few minutes. The journey time to the guest house is approximately 15 minutes depending on traffic, and stops in Upper Rock Gardens. Starlings Guest House is located a few metres up the road from the bus stop.

    By taxi: alternatively, the taxi rank is located behind the station; there are signposts to the rank on the station concourse. The journey time is around 15 minutes, depending on traffic and the cost is around £8 - 10.

  • Coach from Coach Station (1.0 miles)
    Starlings is a walk of around 15 minutes from the Pool Valley coach station. Walk east along the coast road (towards Brighton Pier; the main one, not the old one), carry on past the pier, making sure that you are on Marine Parade, the main coast road,  (not Madeira Drive which runs parallel but below at beach level). Take a left turn away from the coast road into Lower Rock Gardens (11th turning after the Pier). Walk straight over at the traffic lights at the top of Lower Rock Gardens into Upper Rock Gardens. Starlings Guest House is on the left at number 12.
