Plan your travel for Pride – book tickets now!
As Oleta Adams once said,
“You can reach me by railway,
you can reach me by trailway,
You can reach me on an airplane,
I don’t care how you get here, just – get here if you can”
And while we’re not suggesting you go to such lengths, it would be fabulous to see you!
Brighton Pride have been working with Event Travel Hub to create a network of pick up locations across the UK to get Pride visitors safely to and from the Pride Festival on Saturday 4th August.
The travel service will pick up passengers from their selected pick up location and return to the same location after the event. Pick up times will be advised nearer the event but we expect to arrive at Preston Park for 11am.
We hope that many visitors use this travel service and we advise passengers to book ASAP as we expect high demand.
There are two travel products available one for local pick up location and the other for UK pick up locations further afield.
Please note: this service is run by Event Travel Hub and not by Brighton Pride.
Please be aware that there will be significant road closures for part of the day of Pride. There is NO parking at Preston Park and its surroundings on the day. Parking is restricted on a large section of Madeira Drive. Parking in the centre of Brighton can be both limited and expensive, so we suggest you use public transport where you can.
Brighton Station is centrally located and just a stroll from the parade route and a short walk from the Preston Park event, the seafront and all that the Brighton Gay Village has to offer.
Train services are provided by a number of companies including Southern and Thameslink who are the main providers of services to London. Please check their websites for timetables, extra trains and further information. Southern also communicate disruptions via their twitter account. National Rail – http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/

23:13 – Brighton to London Victoria
23:32 – Brighton to Eastbourne
