Monsters and Musicals at the Theatre Royale

Theatre Royale Brighton

Theatre Royale Brighton

When you get a ticket for the cinema there’s no need to dress up, but when it’s for an evening at the theatre, it’s time to get out the glad rags.

Brighton’s Theatre Royal may be steeped in tradition, but it’s far from frumpy; a quick look at what’s on in August reveals a diversity of performances.

Even though stars such as Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart may have treaded the Brighton Theatre Royal’s boards, there’s still always been room for family friendly shows and light-hearted performances.

Brighton beach: Let’s get swimming!

Beach3

Tempted for a swim?

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.

Palace Pier beach gets top rating!

Brighton’s Palace Pier beach has been awarded the top standard in the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide!

Picture 4

Palace Pier beach gets top ranking!

We’ve always known it is a great place to swim and chill. So it’s little surprise that the MCS report was so flattering when it came to checking out our favourite hangout. So here are some of the quotes from the MCS report:

Water grade 2010: Highest UK standard for bathing quality (recommended for the last three years!).

Meets European water quality standards

Things to do: Swimming, surfing, seafront promenade walks, kite flying, many summer festivals.

Local Facilities: food, toilets, disabled toilets, shops, litter bins.

Wildlife & Walks: Coastal walks include the famous Seven Sisters path along the south coast.

Litter: Beaches cleaned daily.

“Highly popular shingle and sand beach serving one of Britain’s most famous seaside resorts. Local attractions include the refurbished pier, fun fairs, arcades and local shopping.”

The beach was also praised for having plentiful parking.

No excuse then, get those bags packed and get ready for a great beach bank holiday weekend!

Check out the discounts we have, or call the hotel to book.

Sun love, not sunburn

Stay safe in the sun

Stay safe in the sun

We all love sitting with the family on Brighton beach. It’s safe, it’s clean and it’s so much fun. But take care, at times it gets a lot hotter than you might think and before you know it, it’s lobster time!
With the massive bank holiday approaching and loads of people visiting the city – some with families, others with stag and hen parties – it’s time for some expert sun protection advice.
Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll go home happy and rested, not battered and knackered!
• Avoid the midday sun
• Cover up: we all like a tan, but it’s more important to protect your skin. Wear caps and hats and lightweight clothing.
• Find out your skin type, some people need more protection than others. Consider how much protection you should have, and investigate UVB/UVA rays – the sun emits both.
• Use creams to protect your skin: Apply before you go out, not afterwards and check they are in date, then re-apply throughout the day.
• Children have especially sensitive skin so keep an eye on your youngsters. If in doubt, give them a break under a parasol between 11am and 3pm when the sun is at its strongest.
• In fact, give yourself a break during these hours, too. If Brighton’s recent weather is anything to go by, you’ll still have plenty of time to tan.

Brighton’s real-life sea life

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!

The children are taking over!

fringegreyscalethumbYes 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.

Brighton’s Parklife – Queen’s Park

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.

Queen's Park

Queen's Park

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.
