Brighton is a sizable place but you’ll be able to cover most of it on foot. Alternatively you can buy a day ticket (£2.80) from the driver to scoot back and forth on Brighton & Hove buses.
Parking can be expensive. To park in any central street space you will need a voucher. They can be purchased from various garages and shops around town and cost £1.50 per half-hour in the centre, or per hour further out. Alternatively, there’s a park and ride outside town with connecting buses, and pay-and-display parking on the Kingsway in Hove.
Cab companies include Brighton Streamline Taxis (747474) and City Cabs (205205) and there’s a taxi rank on the junction of East St with Market St.
You can rent bikes from Planet Cycle Hire (748881; West Pier Promenade; 10am-6pm Thu-Tue May-Sep, 10am-4pm Fri-Mon Oct-Apr), next to West Pier, for £8/12 per half day/day. Deposit and ID required.
