TRAVELLING TO BRIGHTON

Brighton is very easy to reach by road, rail and air:

BY ROAD:

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 is usually (chargeable) parking available in the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel car park, there are a number of car parks nearby (charges vary) and on-street parking may be available but is normally very limited.

BY RAIL:

Brighton Railway Station is easy to reach by rail with fast direct train services from London, Gatwick Airport and along the South coast.

Digital Education Marketing CommunicationsThere is also a direct rail link from Brighton Railway Station to Ashford International Railway Station to connect with the Eurostar service to the rest of Europe.

You can walk from the station to the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel on the seafront, it takes about 15-20 minutes. (There is a taxi rank at the Station, a taxi will take about 8-10 minutes to the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel.)

BY AIR:

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 are often cheaper, but travelling from those airports takes much 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).
