Located directly under Brighton Railway Station, Green Door Store is a popular hub for Brighton's DIY music scene, with something on every night of the week. A short walk away on Trafalgar St is the Prince Albert pub. The exterior graffiti mural of famous faces makes this a must-see venue, but the interior also has a lot to offer, with an upstairs space that hosts live music. Both of these venues are conveniently located next to the Brighton Station hub, where you can rent a bike to continue your journey.
For the next stop on your musical tour of Brighton, cycle down Frederick Place and join Queens Rd, continuing downhill until you come to The Hope & Ruin on your right - be sure to check out their all-vegan kitchen whilst you check out the bands playing upstairs.
If this still isn't enough for you, continue down Queens Rd, over the traffic lights and turn left once you reach the seafront before joining the cycle path heading east along the promenade. After 5 minutes you will find the 600-capacity Concorde 2 nestled into the seafront. Many a UK band visit the classic Victorian building as part of their touring circuit - expect to hear some top quality bands, or stick around for one of their varied club nights. Don't forget to lock your bike up in the conveniently placed Madeira Drive hub!
