Our first real meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion came thanks to the draw for the 2016-7 Football League Trophy group stage. When we say “real”, it’s not that our friendly matches before were make-believe. But that Football League Trophy fixture counted for something – if you count taking on an U23 side as ‘real’. Eager to do our bit to assist the future of our glorious nature (or whatever the reason for the tournament), we did it the next season too.
Brighton & Hove Albion: The Facts
American Express Community Stadium
Village Way, Brighton, BN1 9BL
Brighton & Hove Albion Travel Information – Distance: 102 miles
Unless you want to go through the centre of London, you have to take the M25 for almost half a circuit to get to Brighton. Counter-clockwise is your best bet, so touch wood and cross those fingers that traffic at the M40, M4 and M3 interchanges is on best behaviour. And allow extra time, etc…
When you get to Junction 7, leave the M25 and take the southbound M23. Keep on going when the motorway comes to an end after 14 miles; heading onto the A23 for another 16 miles. At the junction with the A27, follow the road round to the left and join the eastbound carriageway towards Lewes/Newhaven.
It’s just three miles down the road before you’re called into action again at the B2123 exit. Come off the A27 here and take the third exit at the end of the ramp towards Falmer. Go across another roundabout and turn right onto Village Way for the stadium. Of course, do bear in mind the below postcodes and locations for the Park and Ride sites.
Brighton & Hove Albion have three Park and Ride sites in operation:
1 – Mill Road (BN1 8ZF)
2 – “Park and Ride 2” (BN2 4AT) Currently Closed
3 – Brighton Racecourse (BN2 9XZ)
The first of these (Mill Road) has 450 spaces and is at the end of the A23. It’s the most popular too; filling up 90 minutes before kick-off on most occasions. The Racecourse is much larger with 700 spaces, although buses from here take 20 minutes.
All sites are served by at least one wheelchair-accessible bus for disabled supporters.
Services to: BRIGHTON (for LONDON ST PANCRAS)
The nearest station to the ground is Falmer, which is literally outside the stadium. If you’re not liking the look of that additional connection from Brighton, you’re out of luck; Brighton’s main station is five miles away and not walkable unless you have a spare hour-and-a-half.
