Current restrictions mean we’re unable to offer our usual audience coach service from Lewes station. Unfortunately there’s no alternative at the moment, so all audience members will be arriving by car, you can find instructions for how to reach us by car below.

How to get here by car

Glyndebourne is 54 miles south of London. You’ll need to leave at least two and a half hours from crossing the Thames to arrival at Glyndebourne.

  • Take the M23 towards Brighton then the A27 towards Lewes.
  • To avoid Lewes town centre pass over the first roundabout and at the second roundabout turn on to the A26 Tunbridge Wells road.
  • Just after leaving Lewes, fork right on to the B2192, and take the next right turn before Ringmer village, signposted to Glyndebourne.
How will you ensure people are distanced in the car park?

We have a large car park and the option of using overflow spaces if required. Our parking attendants will manage your arrival and exit from the car park to ensure your safety.

Where can I find recommended train times from London?

As we’re not running an audience coach service from Lewes station, we’re not recommending a specific London train. However, if you’re planning to use public transport then it’s advisable to arrive into Lewes around two hours before the performance starts. There are a number of local taxi companies that can help you make the last part of your journey to Glyndebourne, but we encourage you to book that service in advance.
