From the end of the M23, continue onto the A23, heading towards Brighton. At the roundabout, take the A27 towards Lewes. After four miles you will see the stadium on your right hand side. 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.

There is no parking available for away fans at the stadium itself, but coaches and minibuses will be allowed to park there providing that they have been pre-booked with the Club. Also, there is a no parking zone in force around the area of the stadium on matchdays.

Take a look at this document produced by Brighton & Hove Albion which gives details/post codes of the various car parks near the stadium.

The club runs various park and ride schemes. These are at Brighton Racecourse, Mill Toad at the A23/A27 intersection and there is one at Mithras House (Brighton University) on Lewes Road.

The stadium is served by Falmer railway station which is nine-minutes from Brighton railway station and seven minutes from Lewes railway station, these two bigger stations are served by London trains.  For more detailed travel information see here

Eat & Drink

A selection of beers and food is available inside the stadium. The pubs near the stadium tend to be for home supporters the best pubs for away fans being near the railway station, it may be worth noting that some of the bars within the stadium are open after the game.

Been a couple of times to the new ground and it is impressive.  Its surreal that this fixture is taking place. But I have big love for Brighton as a city and for the club.  Am hopeing to go to this one.  Should be a cracking atmosphere.

Bet Frank is looking forward to it as well, pretty much a home game for him.

The problem, and it's a big one, is getting away from the ground. The away end is at the far end of the stadium from the station and if you stay till the final whistle the queues for the trains are enormous. The last game I went to there was against Ipswich, who took far fewer than our 3,200, but it was still the best part of an hour before we got onto a train. The answer may be to stay inside the ground for 45 minutes or so, which I think we'll try this time. The bars remain open, I believe.

This is basically my plan. Unless there's some better pubs nearby you can walk to and kill a bit of time?

Are you talking about Brighton station or Falmer?

It appears to only be a 15min walk from the ground back to Brighton, is that accurate?

15 minute walk if you run like fuck!
It's about 4 miles to the station.

Oh yes, I didn't hit the 'Walk' icon on the map, its a 15 min drive or an hour and a bit walk which changes things a bit.

Cheers.
