ACCOMMODATION IN BRIGHTON
If you require accommodation in Brighton & Hove please see our Accommodation page for information about accommodation options – you can book accommodation at the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel on a special rate and terms negotiated by EMCdigital or book direct with any of the hundreds of hotels, B&Bs, hostels and holiday lets in the Brighton & Hove area.
TRAVELLING TO BRIGHTON
Brighton is very easy to reach by road, rail and air:
Brighton is well-connected by road to the rest of the UK via the M23 and A27, and to the Continent via ferry crossings at Newhaven, Dover, Portsmouth, Southampton and Harwich, and by the Eurotunnel at Folkestone.
When you arrive there are a number of parking options (although these can be expensive). You may wish to consider buying a day-ticket online for the Brighton Station car park and then walking to the venue or alternatively you could park in the much more expensive NCP Theatre Car Park which is the closest car park to the venue. On-street parking may be available but is normally very limited and expensive.
Brighton is well served by nearby Gatwick Airport (30 minutes by rail, 45 minutes by car).
The other London airports are reasonably well connected to Brighton by road and rail, including London Heathrow Airport (120 minutes by rail, 90 minutes by car), London City Airport (120 minutes by rail, 110 minutes by car).
PLEASE NOTE: We strongly recommend therefore that you fly into Gatwick Airport if you can. We appreciate flights to London Stansted Airport and London Luton Airport maybe be cheaper, but travelling from those airports takes longer and is more complicated (from Luton about 140 minutes by rail or 120 minutes by car and from Stansted about 170 minutes by rail or 140 minutes by car).
