Listed below are details on how to travel to The 1st Central County Ground via bus, rail, as well as information for motorists and where to park.
Travelling by Bus
The Number 7 bus runs past the North (Cromwell Road End) of the ground with several stops in close proximity of the ground. This service is the George Street in Hove to Brighton Marina service (and vice versa), and also serves both Hove and Brighton Rail Stations. This bus runs approximately every 7-8 minutes during the day, roughly every 10 minutes later on in the evening on weekdays and Saturdays, and also around every 10 minutes on Sundays.
The North-East entrance to the ground is situated on the corner of Cromwell Road and Palmeira Avenue, however if for any reason this should not be accessible, walk down Palmeira Avenue and take a right into Eaton Road to reach the main entrance to SCCC.
The 21 & 21A Brighton Marina to Goldstone Valley service stops right outside the main entrance to the ground, however these are slightly less frequent, although it does serve some of the central Brighton areas.
For up to date information on these services and for detailed route map information please visit Brighton & Hove Buses' Website - www.buses.co.uk
To Hove Station
Hove Railway Station is approximately 10 minutes walk from The 1st Central County Ground. Walk down Goldstone Villas Road, turn left and walk straight on, across traffic lights (All Saints Church on corner), past The Sussex Cricketer public house where the entrance is next on the left.
The Number 7 Bus (Brighton & Hove Buses) also runs from Hove Station to the North (Cromwell Road End) of the ground, in the direction of Brighton Marina.
To Brighton Station
Brighton's Railway Station is a much further walk from the ground, at least 30 minutes, so it would be advisable to catch one of the regular services to Hove Station or catching the Number 7 bus towards Hove George Street which runs directly past the Cromwell Road End of the ground.
