West Ham United travel information

There will be a limited service on Southern Rail on Saturday.

By BHAFC • 24 August 2023

All home and away fans can travel for free on buses and trains within our travel zone on production of their digital matchday or season ticket this Saturday when we take on West Ham United at The Amex.

There is a nationwide strike by the RMT union affecting train services on Saturday 26 August. Southern Railway will be operating a limited service across its network, with a later start up and earlier finish and some routes not served at all.

We have been working with Southern and they are able to provide some trains to and from Falmer on matchday, including longer trains and services in the evening to get people away after the game.  

However, please note that there will be no trains on the West Coastway route from Brighton station towards Shoreham-by-Sea, Lancing, Worthing, Littlehampton and Barnham after the match. The last train from Brighton towards those stations will leave before the end of the game.  

If you’re planning on using the train to get to the match, please plan your entire journey - there and back - carefully, including checking you’ll make any connections. Please be aware the London line will be closing at 9pm. You may need to queue and may not be able to board your chosen service. Make sure you give yourself plenty of additional time to get to and from the Amex Stadium.

Please check Southern Rail's website prior to travelling by rail. Trains departing from Falmer post-match will not stop at Moulsecoomb or London Road.

There’s still time to book a coach seat with Seagull Travel. Groups wishing to come to the match via private minibus or coaches need to book a parking space through supporter services.

Brighton & Hove Buses and Stagecoach will be operating a normal Saturday service across our Travel Zone.

Mill Road and Brighton Racecourse park & ride sites open from 14:30, with spaces allocated on a first come, first served basis.

EDF park and ride is open from 2.30pm and must be pre-booked.

The last P&R bus leaves the stadium one and a half hours after the final whistle and the sites close shortly afterwards.

With limited spaces available in car parks B and C (Sussex University), we advise you book as soon as possible via our website. All parking must be booked in advance.

Fans booked in Sussex University car parks must use the Stanmer Park entrance, using the underpass to walk to The Amex. Shuttle services from car park C will be available from bus stops facing car parks 4 and 5, plus at the entrance to car park 1. Please note, there are roadworks within the University site so please leave extra time for your journey.  

There’s a drop-off and pick-up point located at Sussex University car park 5 by the Sports Hall, using the underpass to walk to The Amex. There are no stopping locations along Village Way or Woollards Way.

Please note there is no local street parking is available for football supporters, as all areas close to The Amex have a residents parking scheme in operation, and enforcement officers will be on patrol.
