Its a wonderful place, it’s unique and every weekend people grab hotel offers looking to arrive at the last minute and take a chance.
But if any city has a bit of a reputation, it’s Brighton. We’ve all been there: in a conversation with someone from another town, once you’ve said you are from Brighton pretty soon some half-arsed comment gets sent back in your direction. “Oh, it’s full of gay people, isn’t it? that kind of thing.
Well, we love living here. And we know that everyone who visits leaves with a good impression – and sometimes they never leave at all…
There’s plenty of sterotypes about Brighton, and we are glad to say that many of them are true!
Here’s 5 unlikely things said about Brighton which are actually true.
People skateboard to work
Oh yes they do! There was even a crazy roller-blading guy on Lewes Rd. Whoever he was , he’d be seen roller-blading his way into town in just a pair of shorts, even in winter.
It’s full of gay people
Oh yes, of course its full of gay people: it’s Brighton! But don’t think its Mardi Gras everyday, in fact the best thing you can do is not think. This is the gay capital of the country – it sets the standard – and frankly on most days you’d be pushed to even notice, so get over it.
It’s a party town, just for party people
No, it’s a party town for everyone! Our hotel offers attract every type of visitor, from young couples to pensioners to students: the town isn’t some naff fairground and club zone. But oh yes, we party!
It’s a freakshow
Damn right it is! Be all you can be, be everything you can be – in this town everything goes. So the people who would stand out in other places, fit right in. And we love to celebrate it so watch out for parades, street parties, punks and pimps.
It’s the end of ambition
I couldn’t believe it when a friend of mine told me this. His new colleague in London said, “Brighton: it’s the end of ambition, isn’t it?” F**k off! this city is buzzing for business, and is set to recover faster than any other in the country because of its progressive attitudes.
We love it because it’s great for families, too – not just digital media coolios and dykes on bikes – take a look at our Brighton local events and what’s happening on half term in Brighton and you’ll get the idea.
Come and stay with our hotel offers and find out for yourselves.
