This year the Brighton Tattoo Convention is back at the Brighton Centre, in the heart of the city, right on the seafront. The full address is: Brighton Centre, Kings Road, Brighton, BN1 2GR. See full info on getting to the convention below.
If you are coming by train, head to Brighton national rail station, and the Brighton Centre is roughly a 10 minute walk. When you exit the station, walk directly towards the sea front on West Street, past the Queen’s Head pub until you get to the sea front. Turn right, and the Brighton Centre is the building after The Odeon cinema.
From London and the North the easiest way to get to Brighton is to connect via the M25 London orbital motorway. The Brighton Centre is about 45 minutes once you leave the M25; leave the M25 at junction 7 southbound onto the M23, which later becomes A23 directly into Brighton. The road will continue through the City straight to Brighton Seafront where the Brighton Centre is located.
Brighton and its closest neighbours to the East and West are linked via the A27. This is the easiest route to Brighton from both directions. Leave the A27 via the A23 ramp (signposted Brighton), take the 3rd exit on the first roundabout and 1st exit on the second roundabout, this will join you onto the A23 / London Road directly into Brighton. The road will continue through the City straight to Brighton Seafront where the Brighton Centre is located.
Unfortunately there isn’t parking at The Brighton Centre – check out full parking info for the area here.
Taxis that you can hail are easily identifiable in Brighton, due to their aqua and white paint. They can be booked in advance or can be picked up from the various ranks around the City, the closest to the Brighton Centre is at the bottom of West Street outside the Odeon Cinema.

When you reach the Clock Tower turn right and head down West Street, until you get to the seafront. The Brighton Centre is to the right and less than a minute walk and is situated on Kings Road.
All our events during the weekend will be in the local area.
