Things to Do in Brighton: They call Brighton “Little London by the sea”.
It’s just an hour away from the capital city on the train, which encourages thousands of people to commute between London and Brighton every day.
Many decide to work in London but live down by the seaside.
And there are many reasons for this; the city has just as much quirkiness & character that you have to look much harder for in London.
Although London is one of the quirkiest cities in the world, it’s also a very big city- so a lot of things are spread out.
In Brighton, everything is within walking distance.
Here are some of the best things you can do in the city.
Visit Brighton Pier
Let's' start with the obvious: It may seem like one of the most ‘touristy’ things to do, but going on Brighton Pier has to be done if you’ve never visited the city.
It has a few rides which can certainly get you excited (especially when you can feel like you’re leaning over the pier & into the ocean!).
The pier can seem rather pricey, but you could win some money in the arcades..
It also has a couple of lovely pubs and plenty of stalls to grab a bite to eat.
The donuts at the beginning of the pier get a lot of attention, but if you make it to the end I highly recommend you get some noodles from the Asian foods stall.
The Marina is just under 2 miles east of Brighton Pier- a lovely walk on a sunny day, but if it’s raining you can get a small train ride from Volk’s Electric Railway (although this is off during the winter).
The walk is a long stretch called Marine Parade, which is where the Mods and Rockers conflicted in 1964.
But once you make it to the Marina, you have a variety of options to choose from; whether it’s choosing from over 20 different cafés, bars & restaurants, or the shops, bowling alleys, casino, cinema, and various events & activities.
Basically, there’s always something to do at this modern village in the city.
Get Down The Lanes
These narrow Victorian paths are a popular destination in the city – and it’s clear why.
The Lanes are home to hundreds of independent local shops, cafés, pubs & pubs to visit at your own pleasure.
There’s a sense of vibrancy, fun and beauty about The Lanes; the streets are normally lit up, there are spots of art on the walls and all-in-all a really nice atmosphere.
If you fancied a laugh, you could take a trip to Komedia for some frequent stand-up comedy gigs.
Shop At Churchill Square
If you fancy a bit of retail therapy, take a trip to Churchill Square shopping centre!
It was named after Winston Churchill, who went to school in Hove as a young child.
The shopping centre itself has everything you need when it comes to refreshments, clothes & gadgets.
This is the most central of bus stops where the most buses will frequently pass in the city- so not hard to get to at all.
They always have quirky events going on inside & outside the shopping centre, with the occasional freebies flying around.
It hosts some lovely Christmas market stalls in the festive season, too.
Enjoy the Bars and Clubs
One thing Brighton is not short of and that's bars and clubs, you really don't have to walk far to find your next ‘local’.
Movies In Brighton
So maybe it’s raining.. If that’s the case, why not watch a movie?
Forget the nationwide cinema branches.
When you’re in Brighton you need to make a trip to The Duke of Yorks Picture House; a vintage theatre where you get old school theatre vibes and can watch alternative movies.
They’re always doing special movie events, so it’s definitely worth looking up when you’re in the city.
The Jubilee library also hosts a free movie night afternoon every Sunday; playing some of the most requested movies by the locals.
A free movie is a rarity in this day and age, so it’s also a great place to go if you want a relaxed & cheap Sunday afternoon.
If you feel like escaping the city, the green countryside isn’t too far away.
A trip to Devil’s Dyke can free your mind!
From there you can look down at Brighton & Hove, whilst up in the fresh air with some warm food and a nice beverage.
If you don’t have a vehicle when you visit, there’s a frequent bus route that takes you from the centre of the city.
