So, you made it! It’s going to be another crazy weekend in Brighton. This weekend the town comes out and shows its true colours. There will be fun and games aplenty.
But if you are here for the first time, there are a few premiere spots you should take a look at. We’ve put together a slightly sideways look at the city : The Five Fingers of Brighton.Share on Facebook
Fancy a free weekend in Brighton? Of course you do. All you need to do is to prepare a 300-word blog, send it in and the best entry wins. Simple!

It’s official: Brits are staying at home! The latest government statistics prove that more than ever, British people are choosing Brighton over Bologna.
There were 11 million fewer trips made to foreign countries from 2008 through 2009, and 15 per cent fewer trips abroad for holidays.
That’s because it’s so good here! Take Brighton for instance: We have had three weeks of glorious weather – it’s only rained once, and that was in the middle of the night!
The beach has one of the highest cleanliness ratings, there are half a dozen parks to enjoy, and as for the nightlife, it really is second to none.Share on Facebook
You know it’s happening. It’s almost hot enough; in fact it has already been hot enough for that first sea swim of the year. Children are already playing at the water’s edge and with temperatures (at times) touching 30C, pretty soon we’ll be stripping off and getting in.
If it’s just to cool down, you can get in anywhere along the front. Although, there are a few spots that have their advantages, and a number of safety points to watch for.Share on Facebook
You’d be surprised just how many people live in Brighton with their families and kids, and never visit the Pavilion. It took us five years to make the trip, and it was well worth it.
The Pavilion is one of the most iconic of Brighton landmarks; along with both piers, it is one of Brighton’s defining pieces of architecture.
If you’re worried it’s going to be a boring history lecture in a dusty old room, don’t be. I was enchanted on my first visit; it’s a fascinating place.Share on Facebook
Should the weather take a turn for the worse families can still enjoy the sea when they come to Brighton, they can visit the city’s Sea Life centre.
Set back from the Palace Pier, the underground showcase of natural wonders includes 57 seperate displays, all guaranteed to captivate.
In any single visit you are likely to see more than 150 species, including giant turtles and even sharks. So when someone says you get sharks in Brighton, this is what they are talking about!Share on Facebook
Yes folks, for one day only, the kids are taking over Brighton. Don’t worry, it’s just the Children’s Parade and it’s going to be lots of fun, especially for visitors to Brighton bringing their families and kids.
The traditional curtain raiser for the Brighton Fringe Festival sees school children enjoy their own carnival, as the city closes its roads and lets them run wild. Well, not wild – the event is always well organised.Share on Facebook
If you think it’s fun to be beside the seaside, you should also try a bit of park life. With lots of Regency/Victorian era parks, Brighton has plenty of green spaces in which the kids can play.
The nearest and perhaps the dearest to Kemp town is Queen’s Park. Staying in the Ambassador Hotel, you could be forgiven for just looking south for your fun. But just ten minutes walk away is an oasis of calm, free from the shoppers, party goers, and beach dwellers.
Entry to the park is via the unremarkable Egremont Place . From here it widens and fills, with fairytale paths, lawns and low-hanging branches. First opened to the public in 1892, this park was formely privately owned and retains much of its gravitas to this day.Share on Facebook
