How to get here

Travelling to and from BACA is easy with Falmer being well served by public transport.

Bus- High frequency services operate direct from central Brighton in the west and Lewes, Ringmer and Uckfield in the east. The nearest bus stop to BACA (called ‘Brighton Academy’) is a five minute walk away. Students can also walk to Halland Road (8 mins) or Coldean Lane (11 mins) for other local buses.
