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.┬áLocal 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.

Brighton UK : Why our friends from Europe start and finish in Brighton

Brighton UK is not just a weekend favourite, it’s also traditionally where many visitors from Europe start off and finish their whirlwind tours of the UK.

Europe's coming to Brighton

Europe's coming to Brighton

Now, you’d think they’d just jump off the plane and rush into overpriced London digs. Well, they don’t; they get a weekend in Brighton, chill out and plan their route from here.

And, often they also finish their trip with a night here, too.

So, why would you choose to stay your first weekend in Brighton?

Here are five good reasons:

Close to the airport

Flights into Gatwick drop off passengers from all over Europe, and it’s just around the corner. Well, Brighton UK is just 30 mins by train, but it’s still better than heading the other way into London.

To help prepare

If you’ve arrived after hours of connections and faffing around, the last thing you need is to be chucked in the middle of it all, when really you should be taking the time to chill and prepare for the next 7, 10 days of holiday.

Brighton’s a special place

You know it, we all know it, and by the time they leave, they’ll know it too: Brighton UK is unlike any other town. And if you make the effort to come here, you’ll enjoy special offers on Brighton Accommodation and soon see why.

It’s the beach, stoopid!

Yes, everyone loves a beach. And given the chance, most people would rather wake up next to the sea than between two tower blocks. So what if it’s not summer! Get a bit of sunlight going and Brighton brightens, regardless of the temperature.

To wind down

Yes, not only do tourists spend their first few nights in Brighton, they also book a weekend at the end to check out the things to do in Brighton before they leave. It’s a bit of a treat and a time to relax and reflect on their holiday – most tourists stick to the south, but often roam all the way to Cornwall and back, so resting up at the end often helps finish their trip to Brighton UK in style.

And of course they come for the nudist beach! But probably just to laugh at the 10 or so Brits brave enough to put their crown jewels on display.
