The venue is the Hilton Brighton Metropole, Kings Rd, Brighton BN1 2FU
For most people travelling from around the country it is likely you will need to change trains in London, trains run from London to Brighton frequently.
Trains operated by Southern Rail run from London Bridge and Victoria stations. Thameslink is another train service which stops at other stations in London including St Pancras, this may be more convenient for people travelling from the North as St Pancras station connects to Kings Cross. Tickets on Thameslink can be cheaper than on Southern Rail routes, although restricted to that route only.
The train station is a 15 minute walk at average walking pace to the venue. Alternatively you can take the number 6 bus to Churchill Shopping Centre (2 stops), the venue is a further 5 minutes walk.
On Sunday 22 March as Conference closes there will be a limited train service from Brighton to London, slow trains will be running hourly and there will be a rail replacement bus service from Brighton station to Three Bridges, where trains will be running to London as usual. It is possible to get cheap advance tickets on all lines to Brighton, and given the rail works on Sunday it might well be cheaper to buy and advance single to Brighton, and a single return from Three Bridges.
We have organised a coach to take you directly from the Conference venue to Three Bridges station (where you can transfer to a train to London). The coach will depart at 13.00 and 16.15 on Sunday (journey time 45 mins). If you would be interested in booking a place on these coaches please register your interest here. This is not a formal booking at this stage, but it will help us organise coaches around demand and we will be in touch with more information as soon as possible.
National Express run coaches to Brighton from around the country. Coaches run to and from Poole Valley station, BN1 1PN.
The venue is a 10 minute walk at an average walking pace from the bus stands.
