Brighton & Hove Albion are advising fans to carefully plan their travel over the festive period – particularly if travelling through London by train for the matches against Brentford, Ipswich and Wolves – and in all cases allow plenty of time for their journeys.
With London Bridge Station closed until 3rd January, fans who have to use rail services should also be aware of further line closures between the capital and Brighton, including a replacement bus service, which is in operation between London Victoria and Three Bridges stations.
Those fans travelling between Brighton and London, will be able to travel by train to Three Bridges from Brighton, but will need to take a replacement bus service between Three Bridges and East Grinstead before travelling by train to London Victoria – and vice versa coming in the other direction.
This will affect those travelling by train from Sussex to Brentford on Boxing Day, and also fans travelling from London, or further afield to the home matches against Ipswich Town, on Tuesday 29th December, and Wolves, on New Year's Day.

For the Brentford match on Boxing Day, fans can change at Three Bridges (or travel via Horsham, if based in the west of West Sussex) and travel into Clapham Junction; then change for the overground rail service to Brentford Station, but note this service goes via Dorking and those opting for this should allow extra time.
Aside from the issue of trains via London, Southern Rail will be providing the usual matchday and coastal train service for the Ipswich Town match.
For the Wolves game, there will also be a usual matchday service between Brighton and Falmer, and Eastbourne/Lewes and Falmer - and vice versa after the match - but train services elsewhere on the network are limited to bank holiday service, so please check the timetables accordingly.
