- The property is right in the city centre and so easily approached by public transport. Trains arrive every 30mins at Brighton Station from London Victoria (journey time approx 50mins) and there is always a great queue of taxi's outside the station- the fare less than £5 pounds to the house. Gatwick Airport is approx 30 minutes by train or car. Gatwick airport is serviced by most major airlines, including BA and Easyjet. There is a wide selection of nationwide car rentals to choose from at the airport. However as the house is in such a central location, a car is not necessary to enjoy the city- all the major attractions are accessible on foot or short cab ride.While there is no car-parking space with the property there is a large multi-story car-park in the adjacent Black Lion street... more
