Or all along the coast to Chichester on the 701 "Coastliner", it depends on your interests and how much you like getting a good views (preferably from the top deck where available ) from a bus.
With the pensioner bus pass you can hop on and off.
I have not done the "coastliner" trip, but it has some notoriety for being crammed by holiday making pensioners.
[You might want to consider checking the time table and consider boarding a bus that leaves just before the morning start time for the bus pass crowd. You spend say £1 then switch to the bus pass when the £1 runs out, ahead of the crowd.]
Here is the source of information, just tick buses only.
Let us all know how you get on.

Going towards Hastings I would stop at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. www.dlwp.com
Starting at the Blue Reef Aquarium on Rock-a-Nore Road. The Aquarium is one of the smaller ones and not worth visiting.
With your back to the Aquarium look across to the Shipwreck Centre (donation for entry if you want).
Walk West on Rock-Nore past all the fishermans huts to the free Fishermans Museum (donation etc).
Roughly opposite the museum is the East Cliff Railway (£2.50ish return I think).
Further along you come to the modernised part of The Stade. To you left past the clean and large toilets is the RNLI boathouse(?) (free/donations etc).
Walk through the Flamingo Park rides across to George Street which has a fantastic range of independent cafes, bars, pubs and shops. Halfway along George Street is the West Cliff Railway which leads up to the Castle and the Smugglers Adventure (not sure I can recommend these).
Continue East and you end up in the town centre which is pretty big. There's a run down shop called Esk which sells all sorts of tat that my kids like. https://www.esk.co.uk
