Distance-East Sussex to London

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


We will be in London for 4 days prior to our tour starting. We have friends that live in Hastings, East Sussex. How long a drive is it? Why I am asking is I would like to know if it is feasible to have them drive to London for an evening visit or is there someplace you can recommend that we could take a train to and meet them halfway? We haven't contact them yet as we don't want to be disappointed and not be able to see them. We have tours booked through the day so the evening is the time we are looking at.


Thanks in advance for all your help.

It's about 70 miles and about 2 hours to get to central London from Hastings by road. The stress levels caused by that would depend on how used to driving in central London your friends are.


If they (or you) were to take the train, it would be something like between 90 and 105 minutes direct to/from Charing Cross or London Bridge.


A possible midway point might be Sevenoaks - lots of fast trains from London (just over 30 minutes), and about an hour's drive from Hastings.


Although trains will tend to be slower and less frequent in the evenings. You will also have to look carefully for the times of the last trains.
