Home to Heritage coastlines and the stunning South Downs National Park, East Sussex is one of the United Kingdom's premier holiday destinations. Thanks to its selection of thriving towns and its proximity to London, the county is also a hub for business in the UK. Whether you're a travelling football fan keen to check out one of the country's newest stadiums, or are a professional in search of a venue for a corporate event, the American Express Community Stadium is sure to be a place of interest. Located in Falmer, just outside Brighton, visitors to the 'Amex' have plenty of hotels to choose from.
Home to the Seagulls
The Amex's primary purpose is to serve as the home to one of the south coast's best-loved football clubs, Brighton and Hove Albion FC, aka The Seagulls. Set in the rolling hills of the Sussex Downs, the beautifully designed stadium blends into a unique landscape. It's not only football fans that benefit from Sussex's newest stadium, though. The Amex is equally suited to corporate events.
Versatile Corporate Space
The Amex features a wide variety of versatile corporate spaces. From intimate board meetings to large banquets and parties, the stadium can cater for all manner of business-focused events.
Inside the Amex, visitors can find ten lounges, five concourses and a smattering of executive boxes. First-rate facilities include PA systems and wireless internet. The University of Sussex is next door, offering further facilities for overspill. The A27, ample parking and adjacent train station make access easy.
Something Special for Everyone
Like any football stadium, the Amex is a special place for many people. Fittingly, it also acts as a venue for particularly special events, from weddings to private parties. The air-conditioned executive boxes offer spectacular views of the pitch - ideal for smaller events.
Hotels near the Amex
With Brighton just down the road in one direction and the county town of Lewes in the other, visitors to the Amex are within touching distance of some of the best hotels in East Sussex. Brighton's Kemp Town offers a range of intimate and friendly B&Bs and guest houses. For something more traditional, try The White Hart Hotel on Lewes high street.
