9 reasons to visit Brighton

A city bursting with personality, Brighton is full of things to do. With something for everyone and things going on all year round, we’ve handpicked just a few of the many reasons you should pay Brighton a visit.   

Brighton Pavilion   

Brighton Pavilion has become a popular tourist destination, with around 400,000 people visiting it each year. Though it is beautiful externally, you can now also take a tour of the inside – a great opportunity to learn about the history of the building.   

Gay Pride  

One of the highlights of the year in Brighton is Gay Pride. People come from all over the country to enjoy the colours, music, glitter and electric atmosphere of Gay Pride. The parade goes through the centre of town and is watched by thousands!  

Brighton festival   

Brighton Fringe Festival kicks off the summer each year around May time. Whether you’re interested in dance, music, books or theatre, the Brighton Festival is full of shows and activities for you to enjoy.  

Shopping  

Brighton is a paradise for those who love to shop. Famous for its 300 independent shops, the North Laine is not to be missed. Not only are there tons of vintage clothes shops scattered about, you’ll stumble upon comic book shops, boutiques, bike shops, and jewellers. 

Nightlife  

And the fun doesn’t stop at sundown. Brighton has just as much to keep you entertained after hours and the social activities continue on into the night. With comedy, an abundance of bars, restaurants, theatre, and nightclubs, you won’t be stuck for things to do 

Seaside  

A city by the sea, Brighton is known for its long stretch of pebble beach. Have some fun on the rides on the pier, take a walk past the beach huts, or sit and watch the world go by in one of the many bars along the promenade.   

Art   

No area of Brighton looks the same, and whether its graffiti on a wall, a sculpture on the seafront, or a painting in a gallery, this vibrant city has art on every corner. Vivid and colourful, Brighton’s unique style is something to be admired.   

i360  

Brighton’s newest attraction, and definitely something to marvel at is the British Airways i360. Designed by the same architects as the London Eye, the vertical cable car takes its passengers to 450 feet to enjoy 360 degree views of the city, the sea, the Downs and beyond.   

Food  

Last but definitely not least is Brighton’s unmissable foodie scene. The city is packed with quirky and independent cafes and restaurants so there’s always something new to try.
