Walking off the exciting and vibrant Gardner Street straight into the entrance to the building. We’re up on the second floor. As this building is in the conservation area it is steeped in history and the entrance and hall is in need of some updating. Don’t be perturbed however as stepping into the flat you enter a new world!
Interaction with guests
Either we will meet you ourselves or a trusted friend will meet you and we'll be available for responding to questions online during your stay and can have someone help out in emergencies.
The flat is ideally located in the North Laine area an incredibly popular area for bars, restaurants, theatres, the Pavilion, shopping, vintage flea markets and everything else that Brighton has to offer. You could stay here and not leave the neighbourhood, there’s so much to see and do.
Opposite is a lovely pub called The Dorset, serving craft beers and nice food and occasional live. Two streets away is Jubilee Square with award winning Indian food at Chilli Pickle and New Street is packed with restaurants, including Wahaca, Fatboy Slim’s Oki Nami sushi restaurant and cocktail bar.
We live next to a health food shop, Infinity Foods, so if you’d like to do some healthy home cooking, you don’t have far to go. Nearest supermarket is two streets away.
It is a 7 minute walk from Brighton station if you’re arriving by train. The tourist attraction of the Pavilion is a 6 minute walk, the beach and Palace Pier a 12 minute walk, the main shopping area is about an 8 minute walk. Basically everything is walking distance without too much effort.
Brighton Marina, with a multiplex cinema, bowling, waterfront bars and restaurants and some shopping is a short bus ride away. Along Madeira Drive, however, there is a tourist train that will take you along the beach during the day.
If you want venture further afield, into Hove for example, there are regular trains (4 mins) and many buses. Lewes is easily accessible by train, around 15 minutes.
If you want a day in the country, we recommend hopping on the 77 bus to Devil’s Dyke, with beautiful rolling hills and stunning views. There is also Sheffield Park
From the station it is a mere 30 minutes into London Gatwick airport via train.
Other things to note
We are located in the cultural epicentre of Brighton. It is vibrant and highly sociable, as such noise can be expected, if not the fun in the streets then the seagulls in the morning! If you’re sensitive to noise, bring some earplugs!!
Parking is notoriously difficult in Brighton, so, if you can, find alternative means to arrive. Trafalgar Street car park by the station is cheaper than the NCP, with 24 hours priced at $17.50 at the weekends.
This is our first time putting our lovely home on AirBnB, however, we have another property in London on AirBnB, check out our high ratings from guests, to give you the confidence that your stay will be worthwhile.
Please respect our neighbours, no parties and no smoking please!
Hi, we're a couple who work and live in both London and Brighton. We love both cities, London for the art, the architecture, the history and the many many things to do and Brighton for the sea, the beach and the relative quiet. We love to travel and experience new things.
Ask us anything about the apartment, we hope you love it as much as we do and enjoy your stay!
