For the road in Northern Ireland see A26 road

The A26 road is one of the three cross-country two-digit numbered roads in the southeast of Englandmarker, the others being the A25 road and A27 road. It carries traffic from Maidstonemarker in Kentmarker in a generally south-westerly direction to Tunbridge Wellsmarker and then on to Newhavenmarker in East Sussexmarker. It begins its journey up the Medway valley to Tonbridgemarker; from there it crosses the Wealdmarker through Tunbridge Wellsmarker to Uckfieldmarker, and thence follows the River Ousemarker to its mouth at Newhaven, bypassing Lewesmarker by means of a road tunnel. The road is almost entirely single carriageway resulting in congestion.The original A26 at Lewes headed to Brighton following the modern day A27.

The road runs for a total distance of some 50 miles (80km) and provides access to the North Kent area and its industrial base with the ferry port of Newhaven. In consequence it has a large Heavy Goods Vehicle usage.
