COMING TO PRIDE BY TRAIN? GREAT NEWS…
We have been informed that planned industrial action by ASLEF and RMT has been cancelled.
There are plans to run extra trains and additional carriages on Southern and Gatwick Express on Saturday,
as well as the new, longer 12-carriage Thameslink trains.
Please check SouthernRailway.com/BrightonPride for latest info.
Getting To Pride
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!
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.
Latest road closure information is on the Brighton & Hove City Council website here.
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.
