Transport in Brighton

Brighton is a busy place with a lot going on. As part of the commuter belt of London, there are fairly good transport links around town.

Our accommodation in Brighton for students is minutes from Falmer railway station that takes you through Mouselcomb into Brighton centre. From there you can take the train throughout East Sussex and to London.

Local buses are plentiful and cheap. Brighton & Hove Buses run throughout the area from early morning until late at night.

Driving around Brighton is both easy and difficult. The roads themselves are easy to navigate and well signposted. As our student accommodation is out of town, that’s easy to get to and parking is okay.

However, drive into the city and everything changes. Roads are exceptionally busy, especially in the summer, so you’d better add extra time to get anywhere!

Brighton is an amazing place to be a student. It doesn’t have the same breadth of life that a big city like London does, but it has something the capital doesn’t, which is the seaside.

Brighton is also very easy-going. It’s a haven for creatives of all kinds and has amazing beaches, a thriving LGBT scene and a colourful, theatrical vibe that few other places can compete with.

Brighton has a relatively young population full of students, artists and creatives and commuters. It’s a busy place to live and always has something going on.
