Driving around Brighton

Brighton is one of the UK’s most exciting cities, with so much to see and do. If you’re thinking of exploring Brighton, you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s very easy to do so by car. The city is easily accessible from several main roads, so you’ll have no trouble exploring everything that Brighton has to offer.

Most visitors make their way to Brighton via one of the major routes into Sussex, the A23 which heads North, and the A27 coast road. These roads are both well maintained and easy to navigate as you make your way into the heart of Brighton.

While Brighton doesn’t have the traffic problems of some of the UK’s busier cities, it’s worth bearing in mind that the city does get quite congested at times, particularly during bank holidays and hot weather. Don’t be put off though, it’s still well worth making a trip to Brighton to enjoy the sunshine - just make sure you’re prepared for a slightly longer journey.

If you’re travelling around Brighton by car, stop by the Brighton Marina. There’s free parking here, and once you’ve parked up you’ll be able to wander around enjoying the huge range of different bars, restaurants and shops located in and around the marina.
