Go-Ahead Group to acquire Eastbourne Sightseeing15 February 2024

?Go-Ahead Group Eastbourne Sightseeing

The Go-Ahead Group has agreed a deal to acquire Eastbourne Sightseeing in a move that will expand its presence in the East Sussex area.

Eastbourne Sightseeing owns nine open-top vehicles, used seasonally to provide tours along the seafront, around Eastbourne’s streets and into the South Downs National Park. The business is based at a depot in Ringmer, near Lewes.

The open-top bus tours call at Eastbourne station, which is served by Southern Rail – part of Go-Ahead’s GTR rail network. This will allow customers to catch a train from London to Eastbourne and connect to open-top buses to the South Downs directly using Go-Ahead services.

Following the transaction, the business will become part of Go-Ahead’s Brighton & Hove Buses division.

Go-Ahead already operates 15 open top bus tours around the UK – including city routes such as Oxford’s City Sightseeing and Newcastle’s Toon Tour; seaside trips, including the Clacton Breezer, Scarborough Beachcomber, Bridlington Beachcomber and Needles Breezer, and rural tours such as the New Forest Tours.
