Whilst there is no airport and therefore no direct flights to Brighton, the major London airports are in easy reach of this seaside town. London Gatwick is the closest airport, at a quick 30 minute train ride away. Direct bus journeys are also available. A range of major European airlines operate from Gatwick airport, including EasyJet, British Airways, Thomas Cooke and Norwegian Airlines. If you choose to fly into Heathrow airport, it will take approximately 90 minutes to get to Brighton. Both train and bus journeys are available.
This charming town has long since been a fashionable seaside resort. The long stony beaches stretch for miles, and the iconic pier offers the classic British dish of fish and chips. Visit the Royal Pavilion for a glimpse at a fascinating architectural mix between Chinese, Gothic and Indian styles. The Pavilion gardens, designed by John Nash, are a great place to relax on a summer's day. If the day is clear, take a trip on the Brighton Wheel, where you can watch the sunset over the sea.
