Brighton Away

The M23 will be closed northbound for the whole weekend from Friday 28th February between junctions 10 (Crawley)and 8 (M25) with 50 mph speed restrictions southbound due to conversion to smart motorway. Diversions at Crawley will go via A264 and A22 to rejoin M25 at junction 6 (Godstone). You can expect delays on this route as it has several roundabouts and is mainly a single carriageway .

The usual free travel zone will apply for about 3 hours either side of the game. Thus you will only need to buy train tickets to Haywards Heath, Worthing or Polegate and continue for the rest of the journey to Falmer on presentation of a valid match ticket. This is also valid on local buses towards the ground. Also buses will replace trains between Eastbourne and Polegate due to engineering works.
It is expected that a special train will run to East Croydon after the game but this is yet to be confirmed.

Free park and ride is available at:
Mill Road (BN1 8ZF) -turn right at roundabout for the A23/A27 junction under narrow rail bridge. This will often fill up 90 mins before the game.
Brighton Racecourse (BN2 9XZ) - travel via A23 towards city centre one-way system and follow signs to Racecourse turning left into Union Rd then left into A270 Lewes Rd and immediately right into Elm Grove and right after hospital at top of the hill or continue towards seafront and turn left into Edwards St (signposted - Royal Sussex County Hospital) and the left into Freshfield Rd ( signposted - Racecourse). You are advised not to try to reach this via the A27 past the stadium.
The previous University of Brighton site on the A270 Lewes Road (BN2 4AT) is now shown as closed.
