Reasonably priced all day ticket £7 if you are over 60 £9 otherwise. Hop on hop off service running every hour and every 1/2 hour in summer. Good commentary A good way to get round Brighton for the day

I'm sorry Marco that you've had to wait. Bank holiday weekends are busy and yesterday was busier than I'd seen in the 6 years of living here. We were up against heavy delays due to the amount of traffic and visitors to the city.
