Getting to Brighton

Brighton is well served by transport links and is just an hour away from London by train, so getting to BREMF events is very easy, however you choose to arrive. In early November one of our Festival weekends usually coincides with the London to Brighton Veteran car run and we enjoy watching all the pre-1905 cars rolling into the city!
