ABOUT THE MARINA
“Brighton marina village” is the largest marina in europe, and possibly the largest in the world, Taylor Woodrow started work on the marina in about March 1971. The marina then opened to the public in July 1978, and was opened by her majesty the queen in may 1979.
Walking distance from the marina is Brighton City, buses and taxis go into the town which has a large shopping centre known as "Churchill Square" walk down the "Lanes" where many unique shops are located, and of course the seafront. If you need to get to London or Gatwick Airport, brighton railway station is nearby, and if Europe is your destination, you may be able to catch a train direct from the train station direct to St. Pancras where of course Eurostar is situated for journeys to France and Brussels (please check with station).
