West towards M4 (Sipson (for grow heathrow), Bristol, South Wales)
There is also a modestly frequented petrol station, if you want to talk to people.
=== East towards [[Dover]] ===Also can not take the bus and found it very successful. Walk from the top end of London road (Preston Circus). Walk up the road with Barclays on one side and the pub "Preston Circus" on the other. Just keep walking up that road for 15-20 minutes. Or just ask someone for "Preston Road" that is the road you want to be walking along. You will be walking past a park on one side and Travel Lodge and other various buildings on the other side. Hitch from the rock garden opposite the park just by traffic lights, there is a side turning for cars to turn into. Its just before the Shell petrol station. Just write London on your sign.
Walk up Preston Road, wait somewhere near the park on the opposite side in a place where the cars can see you from the traffic light, such as just before the big bend. It's better if you have a sign saying something like "M25 === East"towards [[Dover and Kent]] ===
You can get dropped off in one of the laybys on the A23, before it turns into the M23 and from there you must '''only''' accept a lift that's going at least as far as Clacket Lane Services. Clacket Lane is an excellent place to hitch from, as is Maidstone Services further on. These are the only two service stations between Brighton and Dover (apart from [[Pease Pottage]], but that's no good going in that direction, only to be used hitching ''to'' Brighton)(Disputed). Do not get out anywhere other than these service stations and you will move quickly. In the service stations just walk up to people and ask "Are you by any chance driving in the direction of Dover?" or something similar. Super-quick hitching guaranteed.
== Free Train ==The train route between Walk from the top end of London road (Preston Circus). Walk up the road with Barclays on one side and Brighton the pub "Preston Circus" on the other.

It You will be walking past a park on one side and Travel Lodge and other various buildings on the other side. Hitch from the rock garden opposite the park just by traffic lights, there is even more rare that it is checked after 9pm at nighta side turning for cars to turn into. Its just before the Shell petrol station. Write "M25 West" on your sign. There Its pretty easy all the way to Clacket Lane - just make sure they are 2 companies which do this routegoing that far. First Capital Connect(FCC) If going to Calais its often quicker to get a lorry and you get free coffee and Southerntea in the Lorry Lounge on the ferry. Southern is checked moreIts paid per vehicle not per person on the Calais ferry, FCC very rarely. Theoretically you Lorry drivers will mostly likely know but cars normally don't need to have a ticket if you travel after 9pm any day.
You can take a train from Preston Park(no barriers, get dropped off in one station after Brighton stationof the laybys on the A23, walkable before it turns into the M23 and from the center) there you must '''only''' accept a lift that stops 's going at either Elephant least as far as Clacket Lane Services. Clacket Lane is an excellent place to hitch from, as is Maidstone Services further on. These are the only two service stations between Brighton and CastleDover (apart from [[Pease Pottage]], but that's no barriersgood going in that direction, south Londononly to be used hitching ''to'' Brighton) or Blackfriars(barriers open in the evening, a bit more central . Do not get out anywhere other than Elephant) or Farringdon(this HAS barriers but from here these service stations and you can change between national rail will move quickly. In the service stations just walk up to people and underground and try to get to another station without barriers ask "Are you by any chance driving in other parts the direction of London. One such station is Finsbury ParkDover?" or something similar. There is a lot stuff to know about free transport in London, best bet is to ask your local squatterSuper-quick hitching guaranteed.)
Alternatively=== West towards [[M4 (Sipson (for grow heathrow), if you do feel anxious jumping the trainBristol, make your way to Hove station.

There Hitch from the rock garden opposite the park just by traffic lights, there is a bin side turning for cars to turn into. Its just next to before the barriers Shell petrol station. Write "M25 West" and some others aroundmake sure the driver is going past Cobham service station. This covers the trip from Hove  === M25 Service stations ===Although it is better to go to London said service stations, as long as you end up at either one you are fine. Cobham services is a service station for both sides and transport within all of London on Clacket Lane Service station has a bridge as you walk towards the undergroundexit so you can go to other side. It is just easier to get to said service station for your direction as it will mean you are likely to have to get you through underground barriers and on buses until about 4 or 5 in the morninga lift to other service station (e.g. So if you leave around 9pm you should get Cobham to london around 10 or 11pmClacket and via versa) so it just means an extra ride but as there close together many are going your way.   == Trashwiki & Nomadwiki == [[nomad:Brighton]] [[trash:Brighton]]
Hitching is still a great way to travel in this country, but hitching into central London is a pain and quite expensive depending on where you get dropped off.
