Brighton City Airport, UK

Our main campus is situated within Brighton City Airport. Located just outside Brighton, the airport is only a short distance from London and Gatwick Airport. One of the busiest airports in the UK (in terms of movements) the airport features 3 runways, air traffic control and fire services on site.

A popular attraction for locals, there is an excellent restaurant on site. Within walking distance you have Shoreham-by-Sea where there are some individual shops, a variety of bars and restaurants and an award winning monthly Farmers' Market.
