The Brighton Centre is one of the largest purpose-built conference and entertainment venues in the South East of England. Each year we hold a huge range of events including live music, rock gigs, comedy acts, classical concerts, theatre shows, exhibitions and good old-fashioned family entertainment. We hope you find something you fancy attending and that you will find the following pages useful in planning your experience with us.
If you cannot find the information you’re looking for here please check out our FAQs section; alternatively you can contact us here or call the venue’s information line on 01273 290131 (open Monday to Saturday from 10am – 4pm).
We really want you to enjoy your time with us so if anything happens whilst you are at the Brighton Centre that causes you concern please speak to one of our staff, whether that be catering/bars or the operational stewards and door staff. You can also ask to speak to the Duty Manager who will deal with your queries as best they can whilst you are on-site. It’s far better to try and resolve an issue on the night, rather than attempt to rectify afterwards.
GETTING HERE & PARKING
The Brighton Centre is located in the heart of the city on Brighton seafront. We’re easily accessible via public transport and are a short walking distance from Brighton Mainline Railway Station, Pool Valley Coach Station, city centre bus stops and taxi ranks; we also have our own cycle racks located at the front and rear of the venue.
We’re doing everything we can to try and reduce our carbon footprint and therefore, we’d like to encourage our customers to try and use public transport where possible.
If you are looking to drop off or pick up a friend or family member we strongly advise you to decide on a rendezvous point a short walk from the venue as the roads directly surrounding us can get congested on event days, particularly after shows.
As with most cities, parking in Brighton is at a premium so if you wish to drive to the Brighton Centre please be aware that we do not have our own car parking facilities. There are lots of options for car parking surrounding the venue and you can find car park information here.
For customers who are Blue Badge holders there are lay-bys at the front and back of the venue where you can drop off or pick up but we would discourage parking in these areas as there is a 3 hour limit. Blue Badge regulations apply to other on-street parking, e.g. yellow lines. For more information about accessible parking in and around the venue please visit the city council’s dedicated web page where you will find a PDF that lists accessible bays in the city, the Brighton Centre is located in “Zone Z” and the closest bays are on West Street and Cannon Place. The closest accessible bays to the venue are in Churchill Square 1 car park, West Street BN1 2RU, on the ground floor opposite the rear entrance to the Brighton Centre on Russell Road but please note that charges are applicable.
Please be aware that the car parks closest to the venue (Russell Road – run by NCP – and Churchill Square 1 and 2) can get very busy when shows finish and you may have to queue to exit for up to 30 minutes.
Our postal address is Brighton Centre, Kings Road, Brighton, BN1 2GR and you can check out further information about how to get here below.
