I'm thinking of going on Sunday, not been for 7 years or so, I remember parking was always difficult but the Marina was OK, can anyone confirm that this is still a good place to park, any idea of cost?

 

Thanks in advance.

Marina is free parking in both the multi story and ASDA carpark but in theory you should be a customer. In reality i've parked there all day multiple times and never seen a parking attendant. If you cant be bothered to walk all the way along to the Pier you can get on the Volks railway.

Word of warning Brighton council were installing average speed cameras along Marine Parade road. I don't know if they are fully installed and activated but just be careful

Hi

 

 Asda at the Marina now have a private company to enforce a 2hr limit  -  ANPR clocks you in and out and you get a "fine" in the post a week or 2 later.

 

The Marina Multi Storey is 4 hr limit - 

 

The average speed cameras are operational along Marine parade.

 

Best

 

Matt (brighton)

Took the mini for a trip to the seaside today.    All a bit lastminute dot com but the weather was lovely so decided on a blast down to Brighton for the L2B run.

Hastily prepared my mini – quick wash, check the oil and stop for fuel on the way

Just a few snaps of some of the thousands of Minis down there today…..

Some photos from Saturday evening and the roll out on Sunday from Crystal Palace. Absolutely cracking couple of days and gutted that my Mini isn't quite road ready yet—but great to see so many out on the road. Hopefully be there next year!
