Away Day Guide – Brighton
Saturday October 29th, 3PM.
GETTING TO THE AMEX STADIUM
From the M23, head towards Brighton on the A23. At the roundabout, which serves as the junction with the A27, take the A27 towards Lewes. After four miles, the AMEX Stadium will appear on your right. Exit at the A27 and take the slip road sign posted Falmer (B2123). At the top of the slip road turn right crossing back over the A27 and the entrance to the stadium is down on the right.
You can book a small amount of parking at the Stadium in advance via Brighton and Hove Albion, but the club encourages fans to utilise three park and ride schemes at Mill Road (BN1 8ZF), Brighton Racecourse (BN2 9XZ) and Mithras House at Brighton University (BN2 4AT). The Park & Ride will open at noon on Saturdays (with last departure at 2.30pm). It is free with your match ticket.
Fulham fans could also park at Lewes Station (BN7 2UP) and then take the train to Falmer. The cost of the car park is £6.35 for the day and there are over 200 spaces. The train take just seven minutes to reach Falmer and the cost of the journey is free, as free public transport to and from Brighton’s stadium on matchdays within the Hove area is included with your match ticket.
The nearest railway station to Brighton’s ground is Falmer, which is situated right by the stadium. It is three stops from Brighton Central along the line to Lewes and Seaford. There are four trains per hour.
Brighton Central Railway Station is over four miles away from the stadium – which necessitates the use of a bus, train or taxi. Brighton & Hove Bus No 25 can be caught from Cardinal Square stop G (Route and timetable on the Brighton & Hove Bus Company website, which shows bus stops) operates a regular service (every 12 minutes) up to the stadium from Central Brighton, as do Bus Numbers 28 & 29. Journey time is around 20 minutes. On return the No 25 leaves from the stadium via a stop through the coach park, near to the away fans entrance at Brighton’s stadium.
There are plenty of pubs within Brighton and along the south coast to choose from but Fulham fans are welcome in the fan zone at the north east corner of the AMEX Stadium at the walkway to the station. The mobile bars serve beers brewed in Lewes.
The away bars serve Harvey’s real ale, Fosters, White or Red Wine and sometimes stock a guest ale from the visiting sides. The away bars will remain after the final whistle and away fans are usually welcome in the North Stand until 8pm, with screens showing the late kick off – and are well worth staying at.
