HOW TO GET TO THE BRIGHTON FAIR
By Road, Train or even Boat!
By Road – park for free right on the doorstep.
The Racecourse is easy to reach from the A27 Brighton bypass. If you are approaching Brighton on the A23 you need to go east on the A27. Head for signs directing you to Sussex University and take the B2123 to Woodingdean, turn right at the traffic lights and the Racecourse is approximately one mile on your left hand side. Car Parking is free.
This is the recommend route to avoid traffic congestion through the City Centre, however the Racecourse is well sign-posted if you choose to enter central Brighton on the A23. If you’re coming from the seafront head for the Palace Pier before driving eastbound along Marine Parade. Turn left at the first set of lights into Lower Rock Gardens. Turn right at the second set of lights into Edward Street, then first left into Freshfield Road. The Racecourse is at the top of the hill.
