The all new open top ‘route 66’ bus will be hitting the streets of Hastings on Saturday 25th May - for the first time ever!

See the route 66 timetable


There’s plenty to do and see along the route! Here are a few ideas:
  • Take a look into the world of Serial Killers, Forensics, Gangsters, Prisoners and much more at the True Crime Museum.
  • Go back in time and visit Hastings Castle, built by William the Conqueror himself – it’s nearly 1,000 years old!
  • Listen to the "Smugglers Adventure" story, including interactive displays & life-size characters!
  • Ride the East Hill lift, the UK's steepest funicular railway.
  • Take a shot at Hastings Adventure Golf, it features no less than 3 separate 18 hole courses! So bring one, bring all, play one, play all!
  • Get creative with some contemporary British art at the Jerwood Gallery, soon to be Hastings Contemporary.
  • Get up close to countless species of marine life at Blue Reef Aquarium – from sharks and stingrays to seahorses and clownfish.
  • Listen, touch and smell at the multi-sensory Shipwreck Museum - full of artefacts from many ships wrecked in the English Channel. 


Hop on and off all day with an adult dayrider, it costs just £4.50 on the bus - it’s even cheaper at £4.20 if you   buy it on our app. With an adult dayrider you can add a   kid for a quid, bargain!
