Brighton: Getting Around


Getting around Brighton is easy and affordable.  Because the city is relatively small, the majority of places in the city centre are quite easily accessible on foot.  The only tool necessary for such transportation is a good street map, which can be found at Brighton Map .  However, if getting around by foot is not desired, there are other options for transportation.

For visitors, driving to and around Brighton should be avoided where at all possible, due to the heavy congestion in and around all routes into the centre, high on-street parking charges and overly keen traffic wardens, clampers and tow-away truck crews!. If parking on-street, spaces are at a premium, it is important to obtain parking vouchers from newspaper shops.  These vouchers are available at any shop displaying a green “V” symbol.  The cost for parking is generally around £2.00 per hour in the city centre and £1 per hour elsewhere.  There are a number of large NCPs around the city, with the largest at Cannon Place (behind the Grand hotel, adjacent to the Hilton Metropole) and for the Churchil Square Shopping Mall, parking entrance via West Street.
If hiring a car,  Brighton Car Hire is a good place to start doing research and comparing pricesUseful to visit the rental car brokers, as the deals of  major (THRIFTY, AVIS, EUROPCAR, BUDGET, HERTZ, SIXT, NATIONAL, ALAMO ) and local car rental companies are compared in one site. They offer online booking possibility, live support and 24 hours hotline. AUTOEUROPE


Taxis are readily available in the city and are reasonably affordable. Getting anywhere within the city centre or out to Hove to the west or Kemp Town and Brighton Marina to the East, will cost under £10 before midnight and a little more after.

Brighton has an outstanding bus system.  (Mainly operated by Brighton & Hove Bus Company)   With reliable, timely service, well conditioned vehicles and fair prices, this is the best option for getting around the city.   The service operates on a flat fare rate of £2.00, which will allow one-time travel to anywhere within the city, or a one day super- saver ticket allowing unlimted one day travel within the city for £3.70 available on the bus (you can get tickets from most newspaper shops or the one stop travel at the train station for £3.30) . Weekly or Monthly City Saver passes are available and can be purchased  online or in shops.

Hiring a bike is another option for exploring the city, . Bikes can be hired at Brighton Marina or the on the concourse of the old West Pier (opposite the Holiday Inn Hotel on seafront in the heart of the City).
