Things to do around Brighton

Brighton is known locally as ‘London by the Sea’ as it offers all the diversity and entertainment of the big city whilst enjoying the fresh air and relaxed atmosphere of a coastal town.

You could lose yourself in Brighton’s North Lanes where you’ll find hundreds of independent shops selling artisan goods, fashion and great food or get yourself a classic bag of Fish and Chips for lunch and take up residence on one of Brighton Pier’s free deck chairs overlooking the beach.

Explore Brighton’s many parks and gardens including Brighton’s elaborate Royal Palace known as the Pavilion or if that’s too institutional for you, maybe go exploring for Graffiti as Brighton’s home to some of the UK’s best street art.

Brighton is a cultural hub in the UK and holds festivals and events throughout the year including motoring events like the London to Brighton Mini Rally, an annual marathon, and tons of informal events each month including the Digital Festival, Science in Pubs, and no less than three Food Festivals.

If you’re an outdoors type, the South Downs are right on your doorstep and there are public Volley Ball, Basketball, Skate parks and loads of Water sports based in the heart of town.
