Lock procedure at Brighton Marina 

In addition to the outer marina at Brighton, there is an Inner Harbour, which is accessed via lock gates on the east side of the marina. The Inner Harbour can house craft with a draft up to three metres.

Brighton’s lock operates on demand from 07:00-19:00hrs throughout the year. Later locking times may be possible by agreement in the summer months. The lock is controlled by Premier’s expert marina team. Please familiarise yourself with the locking procedure below.

Inside the lock

Inside the lock there is a floating pontoon. You should enter on the port side going into the Inner Harbour. Tie up securely using the lines fitted to the pontoon cleats or your own mooring lines. Ensure you are clear of the gates and cills at either end of the lock. The marina team are on hand to advise if needed.
