London to Brighton
by Bus

Going from London to Brighton by bus normally takes at least two hours, with some services taking 2 hrs 25 mins at certain times of the day. Allowing for occasional heavy traffic at rush hour, it can take much longer. The advantage is that it is less than half the price of the normal train fare, so it is an option for anyone on a budget. Catching an early bus from London's Victoria Coach Station (not Victoria Railway Station) and coming back in the evening means you can still spend a good 10-12 hours in Brighton. This is more than enough to see what few sights there are, and to enjoy a day at the seaside.
