If you are fit and healthy, why not walk to the Venue? There are several footpaths approaching the stadium from all directions making access on foot very easy. Most of Coldean, Moulsecoomb, Woodingdean and Bevendean are only ½ an hour's walk away.


Cycling is an excellent option. There are miles of cycle lanes that lead to the Amex. The stadium is equipped with ample secure cycle parking on the concourse that is protected by CCTV.  Most of the city is within ½ an hour cycle from the Venue. All of which makes it really easy and safe to cycle to and from the event. For further information about cycling in the area please visit
