Playful Learning 24 Venue

Playful Learning 2024 will take place on 3-5 July 2024 at the University of Sussex in Brighton.

For attendees who book an “including accommodation” package, bed and breakfast will be provided on the nights of 3rd and 4th July. The night of Tuesday 2nd can also be booked for those who want to arrive early. These are all in our on-campus, University of Sussex halls of residence.

The rooms are all en-suite and will be in either the Bodium or Amberley blocks on the East Slope:

Receptions are open 24hr for check in/out.

If you need anything during your stay there are a number of useful facilities on campus including shops, cafes and bars. Click here to see the full list. There is a Co-Op supermarket close to the conference venue in the Bramber building.


The postcode for the Halls of Residence is BN1 9RJ and the conference will take place in the nearby Bramber building.

If travelling by train, book for Falmer train station, which is adjacent to campus. There are trains to Falmer from Brighton station roughly every 15 minutes throughout the day and it takes 9 minutes to get there. (It is a long, uphill walk from Brighton, so we suggest you take the train to Falmer or a bus!)

Gatwick airport is around 30 minutes away.

If you are driving to the conference ree parking is available for conference delegates but you will need to email us for a parking permit to print and display in your car. If not, parking is charged at £2.50 per 3 hours in this car park, and there is no long-stay option. If you are driving to the conference the nearest carparks are Car Parks 7 (nearer the venue) and 6 (nearer the accomodation) on the campus map.
