Located just south of London, East Sussex is a thriving hub for both business and tourism. One of the most popular places in the county with both holidaymakers and professionals is the seaside city of Brighton and Hove. In addition to housing a number of the finest guest houses, B&Bs and hotels in East Sussex, Brighton is also home to some spectacular conferencing centres. Few are better known or equipped than Brighton Centre.
Brighton Centre enjoys a phenomenal, central location on Brighton seafront. A few minutes' walk from the train station and adjacent to King's Road, the venue is easily accessible from all directions. A popular venue for everything from entertainment shows to exhibitions and conferences, the spacious Brighton Centre is top of the list for both local and national industry meetings.
The colossal 4,500 seat auditorium is undoubtedly the focal point of Brighton Centre. It plays host to the nationally broadcast party conferences of Britain's biggest political institutions. With a 650 seat capacity, the neighbouring auditorium is ample for most industries' needs.
Other event spaces in the venue include some 3,700 square metres of floor space, including a light and airy foyer, ideal for exhibitions. There's also a theatre style space, and a whole host of smaller meeting rooms.
Brighton Centre can host banquets, seating as many as 1,350 delegates, and offers an experienced event management team to help things run smoothly on the day.
Hotels near the Centre
With such a central location, visitors to Brighton Centre pretty much have their pick of Brighton's many hotels.
The Grand famously houses the majority of political visitors during the conferences. This spectacular, opulent hotel is immediately next door and houses an impressive array of facilities. The Hilton Metropole is of a similar size and standard, just a minute's stroll along the seafront promenade.
There are plenty of smaller, more intimate places to stay in the city. From the Istanbul Ev Guest House in Madeira Place to Guest and the City on Broad Street, the welcoming district of Kemp Town offers a plentiful range of bed and breakfast options, all of which are within easy walking distance of Brighton Centre.
