Although it's a huge park with plenty of space to walk, run and hang out, the lack of lighting is big disadvantage. Preston Park has many events like fireworks, musical shows fun fairs at different times of the year

Lovely little park in the centre of Brighton. Lots to do for all ages. We enjoyed the play park and the zip wire the most.

Preston Park is the largest urban park in Brighton. It is a popular place for families to spend time and offers a lot of greenery. It is not a huge park but can take fully 10-15 minutes to walk from one end to the other....More

Preston Park is an attractive, green park with two 400 years old English Oak trees - apparently the oldest English Oak trees in the world. Preston Manor (located in Preston Park) is a large Edwardian manor house full to the brim with furniture and knick-knacks....More

Definitely worth a wander. I kept stumbling across the most unexpected sites, such as an abandoned chapel and the world's oldest living elm trees. Discovering the pet cemetary was especially eerie, since I had just seen oil paintings of "Dear Old Punch" (the Preston's pet...More

One step through the luscious green musk, I could feel the thick herbal scent wafting through every inch of my organs. How is nature so pleasing? I started to see colours, swirling around like a beautiful watercolour painting, the delightful array of flowers in the...More

Love to walk here daily, meeting place at the Rotonda Cafe which has much improved. However, the area around the cafe could do with a daily sweep, not much to ask! Great place for families and much used by various football groups, lots to do...More

Moving to Brighton (1 Replies)
I need some local advice, having been a long time visitor to Brighton my husband and I have decided it's time to up sticks and move there but were unsure about some of the areas. Currently were looking at: Five Ways Poets Corner Seven Dials Hove (station area) Dyke Road / Upper North Street Preston Park Queens Park Woodingdean (preferably the top end near the racecourse) Kemp Town Ultimately I need regular travel into London so fairly good transport links, I don't mind...More

Portslade Station is also convenient for London, so I'd also be looking at the Boundary Road end of the New Church Road area as well as Hangleton. When you look at other factors, e.g. type of house and garden, price range, schools (if appropriate), convenience of parking for yourselves and visitors, you may find that your choice narrows considerably.

Free / Cheap parking in Brighton?? (5 Replies)
Hi, I'll be travelling up to Brighton and staying from the 3rd to 6th August, I will be staying near Preston Park - Argyle Road to be precise. So I'm not directly on the sea front, a little bit away from the main areas. Any advise or recommendations on where to park? Any cheeky free spots anywhere? Somewhere without double yellow, single yellow or parking meters on the road? - If not do you know of any cheap places to park close by? I plan on leaving the car in the same place...More

Around the Surrenden Road area which is in the Preston Park area. Afaik its not become a residents permit zone yet. However, spaces can be scarce due to being a residential area plus others having the same plan as yourself. Cheap parking and Brighton in the same sentence is an oxymoron.
two rooms needed for 24th/25th Dec near Preston Park (1 Replies)
I'm looking for a twin and a single room near to preston park for the above dates for family that are visiting- it can be further away, but not noisy near bars/clubs (grandma of 74 is one of the people staying). Somewhere reasonably traditional, probably without too many young people staying for clubbing etc but doesnt have to be fussy. Just clean and simple. Any ideas?? thanks!
