Where the Coca-Cola Christmas truck is visiting in 2018

The locations for this year’s Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour have been announced.

However Sussex fans who regard taking a selfie with the red drinks truck as a Christmas tradition are going to be sorely disappointed, with the nearest location Croydon.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson said “We try to cover as much of the country as we can but unfortunately we can’t visit every town and city.

“We update the route every year, making sure we visit locations which are easily accessible from the surrounding areas.

“This year we are spending longer in each location, allowing those in nearby areas more time to travel to their nearest truck.”

The Christmas truck visited Eastbourne in 2015 and 2016.
