Withdean Leisure Centre has Brighton's fastest Electric Vehicle Charge point. A short distance from London Road heading out of Brighton, Withdean Leisure Centre is accessed from Tongdean Lane by driving in to the Centre's car park, turning right at the bottom of the slope and then along to the end – it's just in front of the building's main entrance, on the left hand side.
This charge point has been out of service since late Nov 2017. It has had one failed repair since then but at the end of January was removed from the CYC map whilst it awaits further repairs.
Be aware that premium charges apply to this rapid charger. Charge Your Car prices it at £3.50 for the first 10 minutes, followed by £0.25 per minute thereafter.
The car park does have gated access so may not be open all times of year or in the middle of the night.
There is one charging point here, with the following outlets:
Charging point 1
Type 2 (43kW)
Charging point status data last updated: Apr 23, 2018 10:40. Live status available from Charge Your Car.
To use this equipment, you will need to be registered with Charge Your Car, who provide and manage the charger at this charging location.
If these chargers are busy, there are other charging points available within 500m, at Withdean Stadium.
Withdean Leisure Centre is packed full of activities to do but with Brighton's faster charger, a 50kW rapid, you'll barely have time to do any of them! The café inside makes it a convenient stop and it's a short distance from the A27 and the A23 making it suitable for longer journeys.
