Getting around in Brighton is quick and easy. The College is within easy walking distance of the city centre, beach, shops and entertainment so most of the time you'll be able to explore on foot.
For the times you want to venture further, here are some useful travel links.
Brighton station is just a 10-minute walk from the College, for trains to London, Gatwick Airport and many other destinations. Direct trains to Gatwick Airport take about 30 minutes, and it is about an hour to London.
Buses run frequently and there are bus stops less than a minute's walk from the College. Routes and timetables are available from Student Services and at the Brighton & Hove Buses website: www.buses.co.uk.
You should always use a licensed taxi, usually painted white and aqua green. These can be found at taxi ranks near the College, in the city centre and at the train station, and hailed on the street or booked. Private hire vehicles are also available.
Student Services can give you the numbers of licensed taxi companies.
When you arrive at Kings Brighton, you should register with a local doctor, especially if you are studying for a long time. We can help you do this.
There are doctors' surgeries close to the College.
If you feel ill at any time during your stay at Kings Brighton, you should first tell a member of staff or your host family. We will be able to help you to see your doctor if needed.
Above all, you should make sure you have full Kings medical insurance during your time in the UK.
