London Heathrow Airport has more international connections than any other airport in the world. It is 90 minutes drive from Brighton using the motorway, or just under two hours using underground train to London Victoria railway station, and then fast express train service to Brighton. Fast coach services also run from both airports to Brighton coach station; 5 minutes walk from the Brighton Centre.

Tunnel

European delegates now have the option of travelling on the Eurostar service to St Pancras International where there is a direct train service to Brighton. Cars can brought over by using the Eurotunnel from Calais to Folkestone (channel crossing time only 35 minutes).
