Brighton is a small, picturesque racecourse which we always enjoy visiting. The racing is usually of a fairly low quality but the layout of the racecourse makes for some exciting finishes.

This is probably one of the most picturesque courses I have been to. On the top of the hill with great views. Not overly busy either

We spent a nice Monday afternoon here in the summer. The weather was good do we were able to spend most of out time outside. The racecourse itself is very nice but the stand, the bars, the restaurant all felt like they needed some investment.

It was raining, it was hard but it was fabulous. Highly recommend the colour run on the Brighton race course. It was part of a hen weekend so there was a group of us which made it even better.

Yes busses No 2 and 378 both go to the course gates. Not sure of the cost, as it will depend where you board and what ticket you buy.
