Visiting Brighton

Voted one of the Top 10 city beach break destinations in the world, Brighton and it's beachfront is legendary.
 
Brighton is bursting with attractions and great days out and activities for families. From an outlandish Royal Palace to interesting museums and a beautiful (pebbly) beach, superb shopping with lots of independent shops, award-winning restaurants and many bars, clubs and of course a fantastically unique friendly racecourse!
 
On top of all of this is that Brighton is less than 1 hour from London by train so no excuse not to spend a day out in Brighton and soak up many of our attractions.
 
Here are some of the Brighton attractions you can experience while looking for “things to do” in Brighton.
 

Brighton Palace Pier

Stretching out into the sea is the iconic, neon-lit pier. Expect amusements, rides and invigorating ocean views. Take a picture under the most photographed sign in the UK.

Brighton Pavilion

In the heart of the city, you’ll find an extravagant pleasure palace fit for a king. Brighton Pavilion was built for King George IV, who had architect John Nash reimagine it into the domed Indian style palace you can see today. In fact, Brighton Racecourse was built at the same time as the palace, as the king and his friends enjoyed a lot of horseracing.

Brighton is a great base for exploring the South Downs National Park, home to the dramatic Seven Sisters cliffs and some of southern England’s most charming villages.

Did you also know that there are apparently around 614,600,000 pebbles on Brighton beach. Although the real question is who counted them?!
