When travelling to Brighton, no visit is complete without a leisurely stroll down along the famous Pier promenade. Lose an afternoon in the amusement arcades or take a whirl on the ferris wheel. Brighton and Hove is also home to an impressive 98 parks, including six with Green Flag awards, making it the perfect place to share a picnic.
If you’re after something a little more cultured, Brighton has plenty of museums and galleries for you to peruse, such as the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery or the Booth Museum of Natural History.
The Royal Pavilion, Brighton’s very own seaside palace and one of the most extraordinary buildings in the British Isles, is definitely worth a visit. You’ll also find many other historic houses in and around Brighton and Hove, such as Preston Manor or the Grade II listed Palmeira Mansions.
From performance and literature to dance and exhibitions, Brighton is hard to beat for the arts. Brighton Dome plays host to world class dance and opera, while leading art exhibitions are often featured at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.

If you’re on a family visit, Sea Life Centre Brighton is Britain’s oldest operating aquarium and home to over 150 species – making it a great day out for the kids. You could also choose to venture further afield and discover one of Brighton’s pretty ‘villages’, such as Kipling’s Rottingdean to Kemp town.
Two words: The Lanes. Brighton is famed for its winding labyrinth of shopping alleys, otherwise known as The Lanes. Potter through the charming little streets of quirky and cool boutiques, scouring for trinkets such as antiques, kitsch furniture, vintage clothing or retro sweets (a great place to stock up on Brighton Rock for gifts to take home!), all while listening to some live jazz from the popular buskers.
You can also pick up a bargain at the Brighton Marina or take a wander around Churchill Square mall. Head into Brighton centre for high street goodies, or, for more local purchases, Hove – just down the road – hosts regular French and Farmers’ markets, where you can find delicious fresh produce.
