Brighton city breaks
From the beach to the Marina, the Royal Pavillion to the Sea Life Centre, Brighton is a truly unique place to enjoy a short break. A walk along the famous Brighton Pier is a must, as is a lazy afternoon spent relaxing on the beach, a browse of the unusual shops, a spot of horse racing on the racecourse, adventure on the sea and lunch at one of the award-winning restaurants. Whether you enjoy your meal al fresco or in one of the beautifully decorated restaurants, be sure to sample the fantastic local cuisine.
One of the most cultural cities in Europe, Brighton oozes diversity and creativity from every corner. A comprehensive choice of theatre and opera, history and art, music, drama and film festivals are available throughout the year for the visitor’s pleasure and give you a taste of something extraordinary. There’s lots of opportunity for exploring Brighton’s active side; why not have a go at the hot new sport ‘Orbing’ which involves throwing yourself down a hill in a giant human hamster ball, or perhaps add some sailing, volleyball and extreme mountain boarding to the agenda. If that’s not your cup of tea you can always sit back with a good book and take in the beautiful countryside; stunning and vibrant Brighton is the ideal spot to unwind.
