Travel


Getting to Brighton & Hove is easy. It’s just under an hour by rail from London and only half an hour from London Gatwick Airport.

The city is also served by a direct rail link from the Eurostar Service at St Pancras, as well as being easily accessible from the major ports of Dover, Portsmouth, Southampton and the local port of Newhaven.

The start and finish is situated on Madeira Drive on Brighton seafront between Brighton Pier and Brighton Marina.

Train

Train lines into Brighton can be subject to engineering works at weekends, so please check trains can get you to the start line in plenty of time. See Southern Railway’s information on planned improvement works.

If you are coming from the station, take Queens Road south to the seafront, turn left and head towards Brighton Pier. The start will be clearly visible on the East side of the pier.

Car

There is no parking on Madeira Drive, and the course will be closed from 8:15am.  If you have booked Park & Ride, it is from The American Express Community Stadium (The Amex) on Village Way, Brighton, BN1 9BL. This has now reached capacity and there are no drop-ins available on the day. If you are looking to park in the city, there are NCP car parks in the centre of Brighton and roads close to race village where you may be able to park – please note however that these get busy so we advise arriving early. There are also private car parking spaces available to book at yourparkingspace.co.uk.
