UKOUG Techfest 2019



The Grand, Brighton

97-99 Kings Rd, Brighton BN1 2FW

This year we are holding our annual Technology Conference in Brighton. This landmark hotel was established in 1869 and is a stone's throw away from the seafront. Ever been to a festival on the beach? 

Need help getting there? We've got you covered - see below.



You are no longer able to book a hotel room at The Grand with your Techfest ticket. If you would like to stay at The Grand, you will need to book through their website subject to their terms and conditions.

By car

From London and the M25, take the M23 to Brighton and then the King's Road A259 Seafront Road. The hotel car park is accessed from Cannon Place and has 40 parking spaces available to guests. There is also a National Car Park (NCP) directly behind the hotel.

By plane

Gatwick Airport is 28 miles away and is a 45 minute drive down to Brighton by taxi. The train from Gatwick Airport to Brighton takes just under 30 minutes. Flights can sometimes be a cheaper alternative to trains depending on where you're coming from!

By train

For those up north, a train down to Euston or st Pancras will connect you with train-lines down to Brighton. From London,  the Southern rail from Victoria or Clapham will take 30 minutes to get to Brighton, however the Gatwick Express may save you some time.
