Historic Venue for Film, TV, Photo Shoots & Events

Due to the current pandemic we have had to withdraw the opportunity to use our venue for media, photo shoots and events as we are unable to sustain the COVID-19 guidelines associated with such activities

Brighton City Airport is a fantastic setting for many events. The airport has been used in a number of television shows and movies and is also a popular location for photoshoots. The art deco listed building has been used as a filming location for a variety of movies including The Woman in Gold, starring Helen Mirren, and The Da Vinci Code with Tom Hanks.

The airport has also been featured in a number of popular TV series including Poirot and Tenko. Brighton City Airport is also a fantastic events venue, with plenty of open space.
