Combining a seaside location with a vibrant city atmosphere, Brighton is one of the UK’s most accessible and compact cities.
The Brighton Centre is located in the heart of the city on Brighton seafront.
This will be the hub of the ECP 2023 congress where you can hear from our keynote speakers, attend congress sessions and network with peers. It is easily accessible via public transport and is a short walking distance from Brighton Mainline Railway Station, Pool Valley Coach Station, city centre bus stops and taxi ranks; there are also cycle racks located at the front and rear of the venue.
The Brighton Centre is one of the largest purpose-built conference and entertainment venues in the South East of England. Each year we hold a huge range of events including live music, rock gigs, comedy acts, classical concerts, theatre shows, exhibitions and good old-fashioned family entertainment.
The Brighton Centre have a comprehensive Access Statement, which you may find useful. The Access Statement includes information on getting to the venue and parking, our early entrance policy, an arrival guide, making your way around the venue, the accessible facilities available in the venue and helpful contact details, alongside much more.

The Brighton Centre
The pier was designed and constructed by R. St George Moore. It was the third in Brighton, following the Royal Suspension Chain Pier in 1823 and the West Pier in 1866.
The Brighton Pier is one of the most well-known and historic piers in England. Its full length goes over one kilometer out to sea.
This iconic landmark will be the setting for our evening social event where you can join us for food, drinks and an opportunity to network with other delegates. You can also take a spin on the traditional fairground rides and attractions. The pier is just a short ten-minute walk from The Brighton Centre.
The new pier was originally names The Brighton Marine Palace and was designed by Richard St George Moore( 1858-1926). In 1896 a raging storm caused serious damage to the partially built Palace Pier. Extensive work began and the Palace Pier was finally opened in a grand ceremony on 20 May 1899. At 1722 ft long and acknowledged as the finest pier ever built, Brighton Palace Pier ( a grade 2 * listed building) now offers all the swagger and style of tradition balanced with the pace and excitement of today.
Brighton Palace Pier is so much more than just breath-taking views, rides and attractions; there is also a great variety of sweet and savoury snacks.
