When visiting, people too easily get trapped in Brighton. Hardly surprising as there’s so many things to do!
But if you are staying more than one day, or using the city as a base for UK tours, you should look at your Brighton Bed and Breakfast as a base from which to explore.
And it’s often the budget bus trips that provide the best service, taking you to attractions in Sussex and along the South East coast of England.
Here’s three of the routes to look for when planning a day trip:Share on Facebook
Planning on visiting Brighton UK this year, you’ll be looking for those traditional British attractions. And as much as we like to avoid stereotypes around these parts, there’s no doubting the south coast has its fair share of Britishness for visitors from Europe to enjoy.
Here’s our 5 favourite British attractions proving we’ve still got it.
A weekend in Brighton is just enough time to pass some of the finest English houses and architectural styles you can find. There was a surge in house building during the reign of George IV and these regency styles continued to be popular long after he died. Local firm Wilds & Busby built much of Kemp Town and Brunswick Town. And all around these are lesser streets copying the familiar regency style terraces and squares. Check out Brunswick Square and walk east from our Brighton B&B towards the marina – you’ll find many others.Share on Facebook
Looking at spending Valentine’s Day in Brighton? It’s a pretty good move, as not only are there lots of special offers on accommodation, there are deals to be had on food, too.
And it’s a romantic place. Nothing better than spending the evening strolling along the seafront hand-in-hand – ok, we can think of something, but there’s always a good chance of that happening later anyway- you hope!
After a hotel room? Look out for Valentine’s Day hotel packages that offer sea views and discounts on two-night and three-night breaks, as it’s difficult to get anywhere for just one night – and let’s face it, it always looks dodgy rolling up at midnight trying to book in last minute to a B&B in Brighton for just one night.
Unpacking done, it’s time to get out into it all. And you needn’t venture far: Brighton pier takes on a special quality outside of the summer season so give it a wander. There’s fewer people, better views and more space to roam; jump on the ghost train together and you’ll soon have your partner cuddling up for comfort.
Key to a romantic evening is good food, and you’ll be overwhelmed with choice when it comes to fine dining on Valentine’s Day in Brighton.
From here, it’s often on to bars and clubs. But not always a late finish of the sort you’d usually have when you are single…
It’s also the night for pulling! If you are not partnered up or on a promise, you’re secretly out there looking for someone right – and if you can’t find them, sometimes it just has to be someone tonight
Book a little hotel in Brighton, get yourselves to the seaside and let love do the rest. It’s in the air, so they say. But it’s sea air, so bring a scarf in case your lover can’t keep you warm.Share on Facebook
Brighton UK is not just a weekend favourite, it’s also traditionally where many visitors from Europe start off and finish their whirlwind tours of the UK.
Now, you’d think they’d just jump off the plane and rush into overpriced London digs. Well, they don’t; they get a weekend in Brighton, chill out and plan their route from here.
And, often they also finish their trip with a night here, too.
So, why would you choose to stay your first weekend in Brighton?
Here are five good reasons:
Close to the airport
Flights into Gatwick drop off passengers from all over Europe, and it’s just around the corner. Well, Brighton UK is just 30 mins by train, but it’s still better than heading the other way into London.
To help prepare
If you’ve arrived after hours of connections and faffing around, the last thing you need is to be chucked in the middle of it all, when really you should be taking the time to chill and prepare for the next 7, 10 days of holiday.
Brighton’s a special place
You know it, we all know it, and by the time they leave, they’ll know it too: Brighton UK is unlike any other town. And if you make the effort to come here, you’ll enjoy special offers on Brighton Accommodation and soon see why.
It’s the beach, stoopid!
Yes, everyone loves a beach. And given the chance, most people would rather wake up next to the sea than between two tower blocks. So what if it’s not summer! Get a bit of sunlight going and Brighton brightens, regardless of the temperature.
To wind down
Yes, not only do tourists spend their first few nights in Brighton, they also book a weekend at the end to check out the things to do in Brighton before they leave. It’s a bit of a treat and a time to relax and reflect on their holiday – most tourists stick to the south, but often roam all the way to Cornwall and back, so resting up at the end often helps finish their trip to Brighton UK in style.
And of course they come for the nudist beach! But probably just to laugh at the 10 or so Brits brave enough to put their crown jewels on display.Share on Facebook
