Bartholomews is located on the borders of the famous ‘Lanes’ in Brighton, originally an area of fishermen’s cottages, which is now an intriguing maze of antique shops, jewellers, boutiques, bookshops and restaurants. The College premises are in the very centre of Brighton, within walking distance of the main train station (ten minutes), the main bus terminal (two minutes), easy car parking (one minute), and just one hundred yards from the beach.
