'London' is a bit generic, but yes, fly to *Gatwick* and then train, definitely the best way to do it.

Gatwick has a fast train service to Brighton; Luton also has trains to Brighton although the journey takes longer.

No contest - definitely fly to Gatwick, and then take the train from Gatwick to Brighton. Two train companies run services: Southern and First Capital Connect. There are several trains per hour, some faster than others, but it's approximately a 30 min journey.
