Approaching Crowborough from the South on the A26 take the right turn down Mill Lane then first left into Pine Grove towards the superstores and council offices. The Community Centre is on the left before the Library. Free Long Term Parking is on the right.

There are now only limited spaces immediately outside the Crowborough Community Centre so please follow the signs for Waitrose car park across the road. Free parking in the crescent shaped car park alongside Pine Grove and also in the Waitrose Car Park but do avoid the spaces marked with a 3 hour limit. Morrisons car park including the underground one further along Pine Grove is also free parking.

This inconvenience is due to Wealden Council who despite multiple local protests have sold the Mead House car park that had served the Community Centre.


Public Transport

The No29 bus runs between Tunbridge Wells and Brighton. Alight at the Crowborough Cross and walk South up the A26 towards Uckfield.

On the left hand side a short walk past Morrisons petrol station there is a signposted pedestrian entrance to the Community Centre.

The 228 and 229 also run between Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough and can be picked up across the road from Tunbridge Wells Station.
 
Trains to Crowborough Station from London run once an hour outside of peak times. There is usually a 228 bus waiting which will take you to Crowborough Cross. If you prefer to walk be warned it is quite a long way and uphill.
