Important travel update: 
From 1 June 2021 – if you are travelling to Glyndebourne via car, please allow extra time for your journey. Roadworks have just begun on the junction between the A26 and B2192, known as ‘Earwig Corner’, which are likely to cause delays on all local routes. Please travel along the A27 to reach Glyndebourne via Glynde village.

Glyndebourne is situated in south-east England in the county of East Sussex, four miles from the county town of Lewes.
Our address is:
Glyndebourne
Lewes,
East Sussex,
BN8 5UU

By train

The nearest train station is Lewes. All Glyndebourne performances finish in time for audiences to return to London by train. There are excellent rail connections from London Victoria (journey time just over an hour) and across the south east. We recommend that you check National Rail Enquiries for the latest service information or phone 08457 484 950 prior to the performance date.

Coach service

Our coach service to and from Lewes station will operate again this year but for a cost – unfortunately social distancing requirements make it prohibitively expensive to offer this for free. For £10 you can secure a return journey, bookable online below or by calling the Box Office on +44 (0)1273 815 000.

It is essential to pre-book the coach service – booking closes 48 hours before each performance.
