Morning all, I am in need of accomodation for Brighton. looks like I have left it late and most hotels have been snapped up.
Any ideas that are close enough to travel in by pulic transport on the morning of the Marathon. Any help apprecaited!
I don't have any specific hotels to recommend, I'd search on booking.com, if nothing shows up in Brighton/Hove then Hassocks, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, 3 Bridges (Crawley), Gatwick are on the train from the north, Shoreham, Lancing, Worthing, Littlehampton, Bognor going west. Lewes, Newhaven, Eastbourne, Hastings, various villages, eastwards. Check train timetables first though, to be sure they start early enough on Sundays. Preston Park and London Road stations are the closest, Brighton station isn't far.
Last year when someone asked the same question 3 days before the marathon (and you thought you'd left it late ) there were still lots of rooms available around Gatwick from about £30 a night .
Popular places, like the travelodges get booked up as soon as the date is announced
