Road charges


My friend is coming to visit me to London. We would like to hire a car and go to Brighton. Do you know If there are any road charges on the way to Brighton straight from Stansted airport?

Thanks Klara

The river crossing has a charge though tolls on roads are very rare in the UK. BUT parking is expensive in Brighton.

Could you not fly to Gatwick? 'Straight' from Stansted isn't straight as it involves the M25 which can be very slow and dreary. Gatwick is a short train ride from Brighton (and London).

There's a £2 toll when you cross the Thames - though I think it's free at night

Even Heathrow would be a better choice than Stansted

I would seriously think about you and your friend using the train as it will be quicker and cheaperif you are hiring a car for a short period.

It's much easier and cheaper to get the train from London. There is a direct train from Victoria and road charges are the least of your worries - the parking in Brighton is not cheap.
