About Brighton & Hove

Including tips for the best time to visit Brighton & Hove

Home to one of the UK's most charming coastal areas, the neighbouring communities of Brighton & Hove combine to offer a quintessential English seaside experience. Aside from the beaches and an attraction-packed pier, Brighton's Royal Pavilion is the standout attraction – a lavish 19th-century palace which sums up the city's flair for flamboyance.

A wander down The Lanes is well worth your time, with a huge variety of independent shops, restaurants and record stores huddled together along the area's small streets. Brighton is also home to Europe's largest marina, with over two kilometres of big-name boutique shops, water sports options and Brighton's very own Hollywood-esque Walk of Fame. For a unique way to reach the marina, hop aboard the Volks Electric Railway – the oldest of its kind in the world.

During warmer weather, Brighton Beach is the place to be – with troops of tourists and locals laying their towels on its pebbled shores. Getting around is easy, with an extensive bus network running throughout the city and all-day tickets (known as CitySavers) available.

Brighton is a beautiful area with lots of things to do and lovely restaurants and cafes to try. The only annoyance is the constant begging from tramps and homeless people as I feel the council should do more for these people as they were so many people asking for money that are drug and alcohol dependent.

I'm a frequent visitor.

I'm a frequent visitor. I love the shops, piers, aquarium and how each day can be either packed full of things today or whiled away strolling along along the seafront and sitting on the beach relaxing with a good book.

We went on the British Airways, fantastic view and all staff were very pleasant. Unfortunately the Pavilion was closed due to restoration work, and for this reason we are going back! We did the open top tour which was very informative. There are so many great restaurants and eateries on the sea front with quirky shops.

19 September 2019

Fantastic place, pebble beach was a little uncomfortable under foot without shoes on but at least I won’t be finding sand for the next 2 weeks in every nuck and cranny I have and it’s a perfect location to sit and enjoy a gorgeous sunset if your so lucky to get one. Parking is difficult, however I pre-booked the NCP carpark as I had no intentions of driving once I was there, it was right behind the Odeon on the sea front so was able to pop back and put stuff in the car as needed, I knew the car was safe and in the shade, grateful for that with the temperatures we had! Plenty of choice for food and drink from your chain restaurants and pubs to your independents, had no trouble getting in anywhere and the staff everywhere we went were friendly and helpful. Saw plenty of taxis around but tbh nothing is really too far to walk to so we didn’t have the need to use one.

There was plenty to do in Brighton. We did a lot of walking around as it was a nice sunny day. Visited Brighton Toy Museum which was very good with excellent displays. Had a return trip on the Volkes Electric Railway. Had dinner two nights at different Italian Restaurants both of which were excellent in terms of food and staff.

The neighborhood was generally peaceful and quiet.

The neighborhood was generally peaceful and quiet. Although, transport was accessible I loved taking a walk to the seafront. The beds were rather small but not a huge issue, for the duration we stayed. You will enjoy it!
