Plan your travel ahead of a busy weekend

If you’re travelling to or within Brighton & Hove this weekend, please plan ahead – we’re expecting it to be busy! 

While the much-missed Brighton & Hove Pride community parade, village party and festival events are cancelled again this year, we recognise that many people will want to mark the weekend.

Most guest accommodation in the city is already booked and trains and buses are expected to be busy. Trains may be limited or cancelled at short notice due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.

A queuing system will be set up in front of Brighton station from 4pm to help people join the right services and help manage crowds if it gets busy.

Road diversions will be in place from 4pm on Saturday to keep traffic away from the front of the station.

And with COVID-19 rates in the city still high, we’re asking everyone out and about this weekend to take steps to keep themselves safe and Covid-free.
