Brighton Caravan Club Site, East Brighton Park, Brighton, East Sussex, Tel 01273626546

To Find Site:- The easiest access to this site is from the A27, exiting onto the B2123 signed for Falmer and Rottingdean. In about two miles turn right at the traffic lights next to the Downs Hotel. After about a mile turn left (crossing the race course) into Wilson Avenue. The approach road to the site is a left turn down the hill before the traffic lights. The site is well signed from the Downs Hotel turning. The approach road is about half a mile long and is fairly narrow with parked cars making it difficult for vehicles to pass so it is important that the midday leaving deadline and the after 1.00pm arrival time is respected in order to avoid problems.

Update on the approach to the site June 2015, a kind reader of my website has reported that since the local Council has put in parking restrictions the access road is much easier to navigate, this includes the entrance from Wilson Avenue where cars are no longer parked.

This campsite is situated at the Kemp Town end of Brighton and is set a little way back from the sea near the Brighton Marina. It is a large and busy terraced site with about 170 pitches for caravans/motorhomes plus quite a large tent area with cooking shelter and its own small toilet block. The site is open to non-members and is open all year. There are a variety of pitch types with some on grass, some on stone chip hardstandings. There are also some serviced pitches. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are at 16amps using standard CEE17 blue connectors. The electric bollards also have TV co-ax connectors as non-satellite TV reception is not good at this site. You need to provide your own co-ax cable. Satellite reception will also be hampered on some parts of the site by trees. There are two main toilet blocks both of an excellent standard although from some pitches they are a bit of a trek. Water and grey water disposal points are dotted around the site. There are two motorhome service points by each toilet block. Reception sells a variety of essentials, there is also an information room which I personally felt was a bit sparse. The site is advertised as having site wide WiFi but like a lot of other Club sites it was not working properly and was only available near to reception during our visit which was very disappointing. For children there is a small playground.

The attractions of Brighton are within relatively easy reach but perhaps best reached by public transport as I have had reports of difficulty finding parking places. There are many attractions in Brighton including the Royal Pavilion, The Lanes and the Sea Front. Nearer to the campsite is the Brighton Marina which is, perhaps, a twenty minute, or so, downhill walk. It has a handy ASDA Supermarket and many, many restaurants. Unlike the city centre there is plenty of parking here. Buses and a couple of local shops are about a 15/20 minute walk from reception.
