    If you are looking to travel in to or out off Brighton, on a train, this place is for you. There is ample car parking, a taxi rank, and bike racks all of which really help to augment the experience.

    The panoramic view that first bursts upon the eye is so striking of itself, that it may be worth while glancing at it in detail, for the benefit of the visitor’s future peregrinations. Read more

    A lot of coffee shops for take away coffees and snacks, corner shop, m&s, nice clean toilets with 20p charge, and taxis right next to the exit of the station.

    Loving the retro-style waiting room with wifi, heating and books to read. They even have sockets to charge your phone :)

    When bus replacement is running ALWAYS take a coach rather than a bus to Three Bridges if available. You'll see how fast and smooth a coach is compared to a bus 😉

    Queues to the help desks are always massive – use one of the touch screen machines to buy your tickets. Better still order online beforehand and then you only need to collect them using the machine.

    Moksha Coffee Kart[sic] started operating at the entrance from the car park this week (6/1/11). Much the best coffee on the station. (Mornings only AFAIK)

    If travelling on the weekend, get to the station early as the schedule is never the same as what's printed or what's on National Rail Enquiries! Crazy fools.

    Regular trains to Falmer on match day but be prepared for some standing and waiting, before and during!

    You could miss the train to Seaford when you get off the one from London. You need to hurry up.

    Don't expect your ticket to work first time, think there are still kinks in the new barrier system. Missed my train because I had to wait to see a guard...
