Visit us

Everyone is welcome at Martlets – whether you’re in our care, a friend, carer, family member or just want to pay us a visit. Here’s what you need to know:

What are the visiting times?

There are no strict visiting times, and we want to make sure you always feel welcome. Martlets operates a ‘protected’ lunch for patients between 12.15pm to 1.45pm to allow for some quiet time.

How do I get to the hospice?

The best way to get to Wayfield Avenue, Hove is by public transport.

  • Bus: 5 and 5A buses from the centre of Brighton stop within 2 minutes walk of the hospice
  • Train: The hospice is 15 minutes walk from Aldrington station (trains from Brighton and Littlehampton) and 25 minutes from Hove station (regular mainline trains to London and Southampton)
  • Car: There is free parking at the hospice car park for visitors but spaces are limited. There’s also a small amount of on-street parking on Wayfield Avenue but, again, spaces are limited and you may not be able to park close to the hospice.

Where can I get food and drink?

The hospice has a lovely cafe serving hot and cold drinks and food weekdays between 8am and 3.30pm and on Saturdays  between 10am and2pm. There are usually plenty of places to sit and have something to eat or to take your time over a cuppa.

There’s also a Co-operative food shop and newsagent/post office on Old Shoreham Road – just 5 minutes walk from the hospice.
