Brighton Area Code: 01273

The UK telephone area code to remember for the popular coastal city of Brighton & Hove is 01273.

The vibrant South Coast city of Brighton & Hove uses the UK telephone area code 01273, thus you have to add this as a prefix before the remaining 6 numbers of the full contact number you wish to dial if you are calling from outside the local area. Likewise if you have been called by a number beginning with 01273 then it is likely to have been made from a person or company registered in the Brighton area.

Cost of calling a Brighton 01273 phone number

Calling a Brighton phone number from either a UK landline or mobile telephone will cost the same as calling any other local 01 or 02 area code number, as well as national 03 helplines. This also means you will be able to phone persons and businesses in Brighton for free if you have free inclusive minutes on your tariff as these can be used to call these types of numbers for no additional monetary charge. Alternatively you will have to pay your provider a per-minute fee alongside a set access charge which will be listed in your contract.

How to make an international call to a Brighton contact number

Contacting someone in Brighton over the phone from an international destination is a simple process which includes a few easy modifications to their 01273 area code. Firstly you should remove the initial zero from the 01273 area code which leaves you with 1273, you should then replace this zero with the international dial-in code for the United Kingdom which is +44. This essentially gives you a new ‘international area code’ for Brighton: +441273. Therefore if you were interested in booking the Brighton Palace Pier for a function from abroad you would dial +441273 609 361 instead of their standard UK phone number 01273 609 361 in order to contact them from overseas.
