Latest Brighton Station parking reviews
It’s was all good ! Reasonably prices and felt quite safe - we used google maps to find the route around the back of the art centre. I notice the bays were of varying size so can understand some review frustrations but ours was ample for a family car. I would recommend this service and also that it’s a 15 min walk to eg the pier- during storm Dennis - a short cab ride!Russ
No issues, very easy to find. Plenty of room. Safe in driveway for the 3days.Kirsty
A small spot that is suitable for a small car. Not for the bad Parker’s as there is a drop at the front & rear so not much room for errorAndy
Great price for 24hrs parking. Comparable to local commercial car parks. This was easy to find and in a great location. Very close to i360 and also The Brighton Centre. (Within 5 minutes walking) Palace Pier not too far away either, 15-20 minute walk away. Would definitely use this parking space again. Didn't need to contact the space's owner so I can't comment on that. Very happy overall, was good to know parking was all sorted out in advance.Sefton Winslade
really great price and centralRhonda
Decent, safe space. Great value. Getting in and out on foot was a bit of a faf, but overall very happy with the service.George
convenient parking and helpful owner. Off the road and safe.Shanna
This is nice and central in Brighton and was easy to find just off the front. The spaces were however pretty small so could be quite tight if you have a larger car.Vicky
Great location and felt comfortable with leaving the car there for the night, it seemed very secure.Ellie
Relatively hassle free, car was safe and area convenient however if you are not familiar with Brighton and the narrow one way systems of the lanes, it is tricky to find and navigate. The entrance is not very obvious and quite narrow so whilst ok for a small to medium sized car, would be challenging for anything larger. All in all however I was satisfied and would use again.Kim
