Where to Stay in Paragliding Country


How to find us

Airworks Paragliding School is based in Sussex just east of a village called Laughton: near to Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne. (One hour from London).

By Road:

The A27 runs along the coast and is joined just north of Brighton by the A23 from London.

You travel east from this point along the A27 and cross several roundabouts. Carry on past the first Lewes roundabout then take the left turn towards Lewes via the Culfail Tunnel. After the tunnel turn right towards Ringmer. At Earwig Corner turn right following the signs to Ringmer. Drive through the village until the roundabout. Take the third exit towards Laughton. 500m beyond Laughton you will see a green sign for Zebedees on the right. We are in the same building as the hairdressers. Drive past the building and park in the area adjoining the fields. You may block the field gate. An alternative route is down the A22 then take the right turn onto Lewes Road B2124 just after the Harley Davidson dealership and just before Golden Cross.

By Rail:

Glynde Station is on the main line to Eastbourne. There are trains from London and Brighton, but generally you have to catch the slow train from Lewes to actually stop at Glynde. There is a train for Glynde every hour from Lewes and Eastbourne.
