About Brighton & Hove

Including tips for the best time to visit Brighton & Hove

The neighboring communities of Brighton & Hove combine to offer a perfect English seaside experience. Beyond the beaches and a pier full of attractions, there's also Brighton's Royal Pavilion – a breathtaking19th-century palace that flaunts the city's extravagant side.

Take a stroll down The Lanes to explore its large selection of independent shops, restaurants, and record stores. Brighton is also home to Europe's largest marina, with over a mile of boutique shops, water sports options, and Brighton's very own Hollywood-esque Walk of Fame. For a unique way of getting to the marina, hop aboard the Volks Electric Railway – the oldest of its kind in the world.

During the summer, Brighton Beach is very popular with both tourists and locals – just don't forget a towel to lay over its pebbled shores. Getting around town is easy, thanks to all-day tickets ("CitySavers") for access to an extensive bus network.

The 360i was an amazing experience, but other than that, disappointing. Noisy, dirty, boarded up and if you like graffiti, then you're in luck. Full of hen and stag parties, the well advertised "lanes" were disappointing and seriously over-priced parking. Not good.

We came here expecting an eclectic mixture of people ,art and food ,we found scruffy sticky streets .Lots of homeless people ,drunks and sick everywhere. Maybe my expectations were too high but it was worse than Blackpool which i havent been to for 30 years . You had to look very hard to find nice .... We left on an early train home ,could not wait to leave !!

I loved how diverse Brighton was, no one cares about what you look like, what you wear and everyone we met seemed friendly which was nice. I was saddened by the shear amount of homelessness and we were asked for money repeatedly throughout our 48hours stay which can be a little intimidating. We loved exploring the lanes and finding little places along the way, all with their own individual character and features.

Brighton is a great spot for fun and rest and good times with friends. The beach is calming and you can soak up some old-school fairground vibes on the pier. Withnail and I fans should visit Marwood and Presuming Ed coffee house. You should also try the Pan-Asian food (Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean) and craft beer. For shopping, the roads around the station are full of cool little independent shops and some great coffee spots. Enjoy!
