Transportation between London and Brighton is fast and frequent. The National Express bus takes from 1 hour 40 minutes (from £11), while trains take 50–70 minutes (from £10 from Victoria). If arriving by car, parking is plentiful but pricey. Most of Brighton can be covered on foot; alternatively, buy a day ticket (£3.60) for the Brighton & Hove buses.

Where to stay
If you can cope with the petite rooms and bathrooms, Motel Schmotel, an 11-room b&b in a Regency townhouse, is an affordable and lovely place to hit the sack. Rooms feature bold splashes of colour coming from the soft furnishings and oversize prints. It’s a family-run joint, centrally located and you can even have breakfast in bed (37 Russell Sq; from £60; two-night minimum stay at weekends).

The Neo, a Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse, has nine rooms, each finished in rich colours and tactile fabrics with bold vintage floral or Japanese-style wallpaper and black-tiled bathrooms (19 Oriental Pl; from £100).

Hotel Pelirocco has 19 flamboyantly themed rooms, including Betty’s Boudoir, with leopard-skin throws, Dollywood, decked out in gingham and plaid, and Soul Supreme, dedicated to Motown (10 Regency Sq; from £109).
