Many 'At The Edge Of The Sea' fans travelling from outside of Sussex camp at the Brighton Caravan Club Site [East Brighton Park, Brighton BN2 5TS] which is near to the restaurants of the Brighton Marina and just 1.5 miles from Concorde 2. Those not keen on camping may be interested to know that less expensive accommodation can be found outside of Brighton, whose hotels attract tourists throughout the year. One example is Gatwick, which is served by frequent trains departing from Brighton Railway Station right up until 11PM on Fridays and midnight on Saturdays.

Finally, snacks are available from the Barefoot Café which is over the road from Concorde 2.
