Back in town, you can easily get around on Brighton’s local buses. The City Saver ticket gives you a day’s unlimited travel, and is even cheaper if you buy it in advance from shops. Short-hop tickets are also available.
Taxis are readily available throughout the city, with the main ranks at Brighton and Hove stations, East Street, Queens Square near the Clock Tower, outside St Peter’s Church and outside Hove Town Hall. You can also call cabs such as Brighton and Hove Radio Cabs and Brighton and Hove City Cabs.
Thanks to its compact city centre, it’s easy to get around Brighton by foot, and walking is positively encouraged along the seafront – nothing beats those gulps of bracing sea air. It’s easy to walk along the seafront from Brighton to Hove – in fact, the two merge before you even realise it.
In the other direction, a must-do is the historic Undercliff Walk that runs along the sea wall and alongside the crumbling white cliffs from Brighton Marina to the suburb of Saltdean for about 4.5 kilometres (3 miles).
You can also cycle along the path, as long as you give way to pedestrians. You can hire bicycles, or even a Californian beach-cruiser-style bike, from Brighton Beach Bike Hire. There are also city bike tours you can join.
London Gatwick Airport (LGW) is on the same rail line as Brighton, so there are frequent train services, including the Gatwick Express trains for an even quicker transfer into Brighton.
Gatwick Express trains leave every 30 minutes and take approximately half an hour to get to the seaside. There are also regular rail connections from London Victoria and London Bridge (about a one-hour journey to Brighton) and from St Pancras International (about one hour 30 minutes away), which connects with the Eurostar.
