Bubbling, bustling, and flamboyant, the beachside city of Brighton is just that: a bright spot between the sea and the classic English countryside. It's been a fashionable resort destination since the Georgian Era, and tourists continue to flock to England from all over the world for a taste of vibrant Brighton fun. Discover the tranquility that oceanfront hotels afford, marvel at oriental architecture, and take part in the city's pulsating nightlife. The town's UNESCO-listed biological reserve is often overlooked, but flights to Brighton will give you a bird's eye view of this green wonderland. Brighton flights will bring you to Shoreham Airport (ESH) or London Gatwick Airport (LGW), where you'll find yourself gleeful with anticipation for all that this community has in store.
Transportation From ESH and LGW
The oldest airport in the U.K. and the oldest commercial airport in the world, ESH is somewhat of a destination in itself. Indeed, the Shoreham Airport has its own Visitor Centre featuring historic exhibits and guided tours of the airport, and sightseeing flights also embark from ESH. Just five miles west of Brighton, it doesn't take long to get from Shoreham to any of the Brighton hotels. Taxis and rental cars are available, and you can also take an economical minibus shuttle, which can be pre-booked, to the nearby Shoreham-by-Sea Railway Station and take a train into Brighton, which is only 12 minutes from the terminal. If it's more convenient to bypass the historical experience of ESH, it's also easy to get to Brighton from London Gatwick. LGW is a half-hour Thameslink train ride away, though you can also rent a car or grab a taxi.
