Driving here is usually just the start of weekends in Brighton: the closer you get to the sea, the more your mates start playing up, and revving up for a night out.
Well, fans of the track will be pleased to hear they can stay at a Brighton B&B then make their way to a brand new go-kart course setting up near the city.
The design was picked from entries to a competition run by TeamSportUK who are building tracks all over the UK -so don’t expect the round-and-around or boring figure of 8 set-up.
Penned by Rob McGeown from Horsham – I think he gets to drive for free – this is a multi-level track with a ‘Monaco-style tunnel’ and a capacity for 12 karts – location tbc.
Ready to open on October 22nd the organisers are taking advance bookings and it’s probably wise to get ahead of the crowd.
With top speeds of 45mph the karts should thrill without the spills, and definitly add something special to hen and stag weekends in Brighton – you just know the stag parties are going to be queing up around the block for this one!

Now the full heat of the summer has past, a weekend in Brighton is a time when you can be a little more active. So, instead of just lolling on the beach or shopping, use the city as a base for day trips in Brighton and get exploring.
The South Downs Society has organised a week of walks and strolls across the South Downs – the UK’s newest national park.
There’s fifteen different routes marked out, with plenty on offer for tourists after family weekends in Brighton as well as for more enthusiastic wanderers.
There’s no cost involved and you’ll be getting access to some of the finest countryside and attractions.
The shortest walk is just 4.5 miles, the longest 14 miles. This weekend, there are two longer routes to explore, both easily accessible from Brighton.
On Saturday, walkers will start from Billingshurst Station and enjoy 11.5 miles of Sussex tracks and trails – with a pub stop in Wisborough Green. Those fancying a little more strenuous endeavours should opt for the final route of the week, from Bosham Station via Devil’s Humps for a picnic stop, before walking on to West Ashling.
Visiting Brighton you’ll find walks all week, and for more information check the South Downs Society website.
Budget weekends in Brighton don’t come much cheaper than this, all walks are free – just remember to bring the must-have fashion accessory of any late British summer: the waterproof!Share on Facebook
