Bus stop sign


Southlands Hospital is served by two bus stops – one on the Upper Shoreham Road and the other outside the entrance in Hammy Lane.

The number 2 and 2A services run by Brighton and Hove Buses call at both stops, while the 59 runs along the Upper Shoreham Road only.

The Stagecoach South number 9 service and the Compass Travel 19 service also stop on the Upper Shoreham Road only.

The 700 service run by Stagecoach South along the coast road stops in Shoreham High Street. You can then catch the Brighton and Hove Buses number 2 or 2A service direct to the hospital from the same stop. 


Southlands Hospital is a 20-minute walk from Shoreham-by-Sea station, or a five-minute journey on the number 2 bus, which stops outside the station.

Most services to and from Shoreham are provided by Southern Railway and South West Trains..

Fares, timetables and service updates are available from National Rail Enquiries.

You can view or download a plan of the Southlands Hospital site at the foot of this page.
