Brighton, East Sussex
Back in the 18th century, Royal reveller George IV took a shine to Brighton and built himself a very lavish house here – the famous Royal Pavilion. Ever since then the town has been a haven for pleasure seekers and people coming to explore Brighton’s hotspots, so if you’re staying nearby on your large group holiday in the UK, you should have a day out here.
The air is diverse and vibrant and there is so much going on in Brighton; it’s a free-thinking, all-inclusive kind of place, with a lot of culture and creativity, and a big focus on sustainability. There are 8 miles of beach with the landmark Palace Pier and watersports, there are art galleries, live music, entertainment, and stacks of independent shops and restaurants.
Brighton is shopping and foodie heaven, that’s a well known fact. Wander the narrow alleyways of The Lanes, packed with shops and places to eat and drink, soak up the hip and happening vibe of North Laine where you’ll find lots in the way of vintage, antiques, vegetarian cafes and huge colourful murals, or hit the big name stores at Churchill Square.
Down on the seafront you can spend quality family time at Sea Life Brighton; if you don’t mind heights, go up in the pod at Brighton i360 for gobsmacking panoramic views of city, sea and countryside. Ride the Volks Railway, the oldest electric railway in Britain, built in 1883, visit the Fishing Museum and imagine what Brighton was like in its days as a quiet fishing village, head to the exciting Marina for more shops, glow in the dark golf, or just to sit with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Brighton is buzzing! It’s your day, do it your way; discover, make memories.
