Plan Your Visit
In the Darent Valley, GoCoach (www.go-coach.co.uk) offers at two services in each direction per day, up and down the valley, at roughly 10am onwards and 1pm onwards going up from Sevenoaks, and 11am from Swanley area going down the valley, and 1.30pm on (but no later).
But there are more flexible options emerging now too, with bus-on-demand apps such as out local Go2 (www.go2now.co.uk.) Using the all-new Go Coach app (iOS and Android), riders are able to hail a vehicle directly from their smartphone. Via’s advanced algorithms enable multiple riders to share the vehicle (picking up new passengers along a journey if there’s the demand). The powerful technology directs passengers to a nearby virtual bus stop within a short walking distance for pick up and drop off, allowing for quick and efficient shared trips without lengthy detours, or inconvenient fixed routes and schedules. You need to pay a fare so have a means of payment ready [check if this can be prepaid].
We will be adding more cycle routes from each station as time goes on. A number of local attractions have cycle racks and venues like Shoreham Aircraft Museum positively welcome cyclists (there’s room to lean your bike against a wall and keep an eye on it). Sevenoaks cycling enthusiasts publish long routes on websites such as http://www.7oakstriclub.co.uk/Training/CycleRoutes .
