Directions:

By car to Court Farm Studios:  Follow signs from the A27 to Falmer South and cross over the A27.  At the traffic light junction for the University and the Football Stadium, turn left towards Falmer (this is Park Street).  Keep ahead onto East Street (Park St bears sharp left - don't follow the left turn!).  East Street also swings to the left and then there is a small junction - turn right here - Court Farm Studios are clearly signed.  Continue until you come to the barn and car park.

By train to Falmer Station:  - it is a 10-15 min walk around the stadium to Village Way, across the traffic light junction to continue to Falmer via Park St , continue onto East Street and follow the signs for Court Farm Studios

By bus to Falmer:  buses go either to the Village stop (the wrong side of the A27, but there is a footpath over the road!) or to Village Way on Brighton University Campus - both are then short walks along Park Street and East Street to the Studios
