I ran the 2015 marathon which started in Preston Park. Yes it was very busy and very different to how I imagine it normally is, but the park was lovely and very big. I imagine it would make for a good walk. The atmosphere for the beginning of the marathon was electric and the facilities available were great.

I spend my hour lunch breaks in the park - it has many facets. Tennis courts, big grassy landscapes, flower gardens, water section etc. Possibly the nicest park in Brighton on a sunny day. It quite often is the centre for many events too. Pride, Marathons, VW meets etc. Go there with your picnic blanket and the kids (in the... More

This is a large park with lovely features. It's a great place to start the Brighton Marathon. It's conveniently situated on the main road into the city but still a good place to "get away from it all".

This park has been available fo everyone since I was a child. It hosts festivals, parties, car rallies and many other events. When not in use, it is a great space to walk, jog play football etc in.

This park is lovely, especially in the summer. I often go for a run in Preston Park as it's my nearest park however, i love it because it's always so clean and pretty. As I don't actually have a garden at my house myself and my friends do often use this park as a place to sunbathe when it's sunny!... More

I go here every summer with my family. It's a great place to go and do lots for free! Take the kids cycling or just have walk and picnic. Always loads of things going on here from the multiple circuses and fun days.

Nice park which has improved over the years i have been living in Brighton. Plenty of space for games, kids, lounging in summer, events. One of the many bowling greens has been planted with wild flowers which looks spectacular when they come out in the summer, a real visual treat! The Rotunda cafe is always a disappointment. It just seems... More

Preston park is my nearest local park and I often take my dog for a walk here. The park is always well looked after, clean and tidy. It has a large open space perfect for all number of sports and a few trees that the ubiquitous hipsters can tightrope walk. However the constant stream of traffic heading in and out... More

This place is not that well known, but definitely worth a visit. It's one of the loveliest Manor Houses I have ever been to in my life. Open to the public thanks to the council. Well furnished and an excellent representative of the Edwardian times.
