If you’re planning a holiday, whether just for a weekend break or for a family seaside holiday, Brighton and Hove would be one of the best choices. It is one of the most popular seasides in England.
In just under an hour from London, you can be casting your eyes out to sea. Brighton’s a fantastic destination year-round, although there’s no denying that the place comes alive during the summer months.
The Brighton beach
The Brighton beach is made up of tons of pebbles instead of sand. The pebbles do get very uncomfortable if you have to sit on them all day but you can hire deck chairs. You will see seagulls flying out to sea, carousels, small Fish & Chips stalls and souvenir shops. It is amazingly beautiful.
The Brighton Pier
The Brighton Pier is the most famous and central attraction in the city and one of the best family entertainment destinations, with dozens of rides to choose from, and if you work up an appetite with all the exhilaration, there are plenty of kiosks where you can buy snacks.
The Pier has some amazing views of the Brighton coastline.
The Royal Pavilion
The Royal Pavilion in Brighton, pleasure palace of King George IV, Prince of Wales, has the most exotic and oriental appearance, is one of the most popular attractions in the town and is located in the centre of the town. It started out as a simple farmhouse and was transformed from 1815-1823 into the Indo-Saracenic style architectural masterpiece. The Pavilion is surrounded by stunning gardens which are free to walk around. We took a tour of the Pavilion which cost us £10.35 each. The decór has strong oriental influences which are simply breathtaking. The rooms are so impressive and there is plenty of artwork to be seen. The only downside in the Royal Pavilion is that you are unable to take photos while inside.
Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
Brighton Museum & Art Gallery is located in the Royal Pavilion garden, at the heart of the city’s cultural quarter. Its diverse collections bring together the arts and history to tell stories about the city and the world we live in.
Brighton is well known for its many lanes, and there really are some hidden treasures down these lanes. The Lanes quarter is home to many popular bars, boutiques and bohemian alternative shops and cafes. There are so many quality ones and of all kinds. The town centre also has many popular high street shops and has lots to keep you occupied during the day. There are also some trendy and popular bars along these streets.
