Why stay here ...
Brighton Club Site is ideally located just 2 miles east of Brighton. Nestled within a fold of the South Downs and just a short distance inland from the Marina, the picturesque caravan park offers easy access to the many attractions of this popular town. Buses are regular and for rail enthusiasts the historic Volks Railway which runs along the prom will be a treat.
Brighton is a classic and lively British seafront town, filled with all the attractions you would expect from a famous coastal resort. The shopping is excellent with many unusual boutiques and antique shops to browse in. The town also has an operational pier, complete with amusement arcades and some of the finest fish and chips on the south coast, and is home to the Royal Pavillion. The site is also well placed for visiting the beautiful Arundel Castle and Gardens in nearby West Sussex, or the historic town of Lewes. With plenty to see and do locally and extensive recreational grounds adjacent to the caravan park, you're sure to have a holiday here that will be hard to forget.

As many others have said location here is the key, with easy access to the South Downs for walking, and Brighton itself a short bus ride (or for the more energetic, a walk along the sea front!). Not only for local people, there are also plenty of local shops nearby as well as a large ASDA in the Brighton Marina complex.
One innovation that should please many using this site, is that a new “dog area” has been established adjacent to the northern toilet block and fenced off from the children’s play area. Although not really a dog “walk” as such, this is an excellent idea as the distance from the furthest pitches on the site, to the entrance is considerable. Especially if you have an older animal, who may not be able to make it all the way to the fields outside the site without an “accident”. A positive development and one that should be applauded by all.
There is now the curious sight of large pitches marked as “without awning” and smaller pitches directly adjacent, being marked as “with awning”. Why is this ? Some of the pitches have become so compacted and hard, it is now very difficult and almost impossible in some cases to drive in awning pegs. So, if you’ve been used to going to a “favourite spot” at Brighton, you may find that it has been re-classified as “without awning”. By no means a major problem, but something to be aware of.
The site itself though very well maintained, is starting to show signs that after many years some ground work is now required. Don’t let that put you off though, Brighton is a great site, with brilliant, well kept and spotless facilities and very definitely well worth a visit.
