Visiting Brighton and its ‘Greeters’

Many cities claim to offer a warm welcome, but to put out teams of ‘Greeters’ for people visiting Brighton is unheard off. What do these people do? Is it free? And will they just drag you off to a pub for a pint and some midday drag act?

Well, we’ve been looking into it. And sadly there’s no boozing or man-serenades – bit early in the day.

But, you can ‘Book your Greet’ and get matched up with a Brighton resident who will guide you towards the best things to see in Brighton.

Each session last up to six hours and you can get as many as five friends to come along with you. So for people visiting Brighton it’s perfect. Hop of the train and get a guided tour. How good is that!

Not just for Brighton virgins; if you’ve visited before you can still get in on the initiative – run by Visit Brighton.

You book online, giving details of the hotel in Brighton or the Brighton B&B you’re staying in, and the preferred date and time of your Greet.

Although not guaranteed – visits are ’subject to Greeter availability’ – if you book in advance and schedule it for the first part of your trip to Brighton, there’s a good chance you’ll get one.

And if you don’t, not to worry: there are lots of day trips near Brighton to see and do in Brighton – and there’s always somewhere you can grab a pint – drag act might have to wait till later, mind.

And if you’re Scottish, this whole blog post could mean something completely different. But don’t greet about it…

Walks in Sussex from your Brighton B&B

It’s all too easy to just step outside of your Brighton B&B and only ever walk up and down the seafront. Ok, when it’s really cold you probably aren’t going to venture much further than the edge of town.

But with the weather set to warm up soon (ish), it’s time you checked out the walks in Sussex and walks near Brighton, and got yourselves out into the countryside proper.

So wrap up warm, carry some warm clothes and some food, and pack a flask. Tell the kids it’ll be good for them, and before you know it you’ll be having a great family day out.

To help you get underway and leave behind the Brighton hotels, clubs, bars and shops, here are five routes to suit.

Brighton UK: 5 very British Brighton attractions

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.

Brighton Architecture

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.
