Seaford & District is to operate the Eastbourne Sightseeing Tour following the withdrawal of the current service operated under the City Sightseeing brand by Bath Bus Company. A new direct replacement service will commence operation in March. The ‘hop on, hop off’ tour will utilise open top double deckers and will operate daily every 30 minutes on a circular route. It will serve Beachy Head, Birling Gap and other local attractions. Seaford and District Motor Services operates in the East Sussex area from their base in Newhaven, under the ‘Seaford & District’ and ‘Victoria Coaches’ brands.
Proprietor of Seaford & District, David Mulpeter, said, ‘We have been able to react quickly and step in at short notice to continue the operation of this popular local Sightseeing Tour and I am delighted that the previous staff team members have decided to come on board with us to help build the new service and new brand.’
