    Default brighton away

    for all those planning to travel to the amex stadium in a couple of weeks heres some useful info.there is no car parking around the ground.my advice would be to park at lewes where there is plenty of street parking and catch the train to the ground.it is one stop and the cost of a return ticket is roughly £6.60 for a group ticket(4 people).hope this helps those reds planning to go.

    not sure to be honest but there is no parking at ground.lewes is one stop from falmer and a 10 min train journey.beware it takes ages to get away from ground as everyone uses a smallish station.reminicant of highbury in years gone by

    The thing is though, people and the ground develop patterns.

    The Madjeski Stadium was horrendous for the first couple of years with traffic congestion but now, it's absolutely fine as people have found other routes in, alternative parking and walking options etc.

    Just booked the train tickets for this. That'll be the first time I've gone on train to a match in years.

    What's the closest station to the ground?
    I'm coming from London so will I have to change at Brighton?

    Closest station would be Falmer. You'll likely have to change in Brighton, yes.

    by no car parking at all you mean there is some car parking if you know where to find it? or literally no car parking. ricoh arena claims there is no free parking anywhere near the ground but i found some.

    Falmer station is literally next to the ground. Park in Brighton if you're driving and either park and ride or get the train. If you're on the train down change at Brighton and get on the train to Seaford or Eastbourne which stops at Falmer

    Easy.

    Oh and also, there isn't much street parking on Lewes at all. In fact, there might not be any! It's all car parks and on a Saturday they are packed with shoppers and tourists. Especially at this time of year. Avoid Lewes like the plague.

    I believe the travel vouchers give you free train travel from within a certain distance - like from Brighton.

    Do you think many tickets will make general sale? Is the new ground factor likely to make them sell out?

    Don't think it's any more difficult than most London games. Less so, in fact.

    Hope tickets make general sale now.

    First post on the forum for me although regular follower. Lifelong fan from Channel Islands. Haven't seen a game for a few years now but thinking of going to Brighton. Any advise on whether i should register for NFFC or worth taking a chance on a couple of general sale tickets?

    You need to register to get a client reference number to get a ticket anyway (as in set up an account on the website - I don't mean become a 'Forest Member' which I believe incurs a fee).

    I suspect that some tickets will make general sale because whilst it will be a popular fixture being a new ground etc there's a generous allocation with more available should we approach selling out.
