In this Brighton blog, I’m going to take you through the best things to do, the best things to eat and the best places to drink in Brighton.
Prior to this recent visit, I hadn’t been to Brighton in years. It was about time I went back to enjoy this city with a pair of fresh eyes, so I packed an overnight bag and headed to the English coast.
As usual, I packed in a load of exploring during my weekend in Brighton and have shared all of my top tips, finds and information in this Brighton blog with you!
Brighton is a seaside resort situated on the South Coast of England.
Brighton is well linked to London and the South East of England by train.Alternatively, you can drive, but parking once you’re there can be tricky.
Once you’re in Brighton itself, everything is within easy walking distance so you won’t need a car to get around.
If you’re in a hotel, AirBnb or staying at a friends, be sure to check the parking situation and whether you have a space allocated. Otherwise it’s a little like London: tricky or expensive. Parking can cost up to £20 a day, which can be a bulky expense on top of your trip.
The train station is right in the centre and walking distance from the centre and the beach front. A great option to avoid car hassles, and more environmentally friendly too!
If you’re coming from further afield, it’s easiest to fly into London Gatwick. But, you can get to Brighton from most London airports and from Southampton Airport fairly easily by public transport.
If the price is right then grab a hotel in the centre or even on the beach front.
We stayed at The Kings Hotel on the Seafront. The location was perfect and it was clean with great service.
If prices are looking too much then try Air Bnb consider heading a little outside for more of a countryside experience. See pictures below of the Shepherds hut we stayed in!
Alongside a whole load of fish and chip takeaways, Brighton delighted me with its extensive offering of vegan, vegetarian and health conscious eateries.
So whatever it is that takes your fancy, Brighton does a flippin’ impressive job to accommodate!
Brighton of course also has all your usual chain restaurants, as well as plenty more food options along the seafront and in The Lanes. Comment on this post if you have any more recommendations!
