Brighton & Hove

Brighton & Hove, one of Britain's liveliest cities, has a bohemian, artistic and eccentric atmosphere that can't be found anywhere else in the UK. There's elegant Regency architecture, museums and galleries, great shopping, stylish cafés, bars and restaurants, glittering nightlife, arts and theatre and all the fun of the seaside.

Don't miss the Royal Pavilion, King George IV's seaside fantasy palace with its Indian domes and oriental interiors - Europe's most extraordinary royal palace. There's all the fun of the fair on the Victorian Brighton Pier with its whirling Waltzers, fish & chips and candy floss. Stroll along the vibrant beachfront with its lively cafés and bars, pubs and clubs, Artists' and Fishing Quarters, beach volleyball court, children's play area and dramatic sculptures framing the sea views. And the world’s tallest moving observation tower – Brighton i360.

The city's made for walking, so explore the narrow alleys of the 17th century Lanes, a maze of smart shops selling antiques, jewellery and designer clothes, and the bohemian North Laine, full of unusual and eccentric shops. Find all your favourite high street names under one roof at the award-winning Churchill Square shopping mall or discover the designer discount outlets at Brighton Marina.

Brighton Events Guide

Things to do in Brighton

The arts play a major part in city life especially in May when the Brighton Festival, England's largest international arts festival, attracts thousands of people to hundreds of events for 3 weeks. You can see pre and post-West End shows at the Theatre Royal, arts and comedy at Komedia, classical concerts at the Brighton Dome and pop stars at the Brighton Centre.

The city's museums are treasure houses of inspiring objects from all eras and cultures. Brighton Museum and Art Gallery has dynamic and innovative new galleries, which feature exciting interactive displays appealing to all ages. Discover Brighton's origins at the Fishing Museum and its development at the 1820's Regency Town House, while a visit to Preston Manor gives a glimpse into the life of a prosperous Edwardian family and their servants. And there's always something happening on the seafront and in the streets - classic car rallies and cycle races, fun runs and French markets, parties and processions.

Brighton's nightlife is relaxed and fun-fuelled, with stylish bars, traditional pubs and the biggest selection of restaurants outside London - over 400 serving mouthwatering cuisine from around the world. There's live music nearly every night of the week and the club scene is legendary. 

And there's a wide range of places to stay, from 5-star luxury to friendly family-run guesthouses, plus a growing number of hip hotels, individually designed and fitting in perfectly with Brighton & Hove's arty and offbeat character.

Fashionable, funky and loaded with style, Brighton & Hove is the perfect city break by the sea.
