it;s the most car/van unfriendly place in the uk to park outside of london, car parks are like 4 quid an hour, my son used to live there and we visited maybe 7 times despite my best efforts i got 3 tickets, totally mental imo. Screw Brighton and i live less than 20 miles away, stupid stupid parking policy by a bunch of idiot people in charge of the council that are totally car hating
last time i popped to brighton, i managed to get a parking spot on the seafront by the sea life centre £3.80 for an hour!!!!!
like Iain1067 we live 20 miles away and keep clear as much as possible the only time is to go to a concert in the evening at the dome or brighton centre but even then the multi stories which are not cheap.
free park near/on the seafront NO
free parking in brighton somewhere Yes but expect a walk
oh and its a 20mph speed limit in brighton
and be carefully not to drive in the bus lanes in the town, they have cameras watching them, and you will get a ticket.
