Destination

Brighton & Hove, one of Britain's liveliest cities, has a bohemian, artistic and eccentric atmosphere that can't be found anywhere else in the UK. Combining the modern with the traditional, Brighton & Hove has a heritage that is rooted in the Regency era and is brought up to date with a unique cultural offer.

What's on Offer

Amenities

There's elegant Regency architecture, museums and galleries, great shopping, stylish cafés, bars and restaurants, glittering nightlife, arts and theatre and all the fun of the seaside.

Places to Visit

Brighton & Hove is overflowing with places to visit. And being such a compact city, most places to visit are walkable too.

Don't miss the Royal Pavilion, King George IV's seaside fantasy palace with its Indian domes and oriental interiors - Europe's most extraordinary royal palace. The city's museums are treasure houses of inspiring objects from all eras and cultures.
The city's made for walking, so explore the narrow alleys of the 17th century Lanes, a maze of smart shops selling antiques, jewellery and designer clothes, and the bohemian North Laine, full of unusual and eccentric shops selling everything from bonsai trees and bongos to oriental silks and far eastern furniture.

Entertainment

Brighton's nightlife is relaxed and fun-fuelled, with stylish bars, traditional pubs and the biggest selection of restaurants outside London - over 400 serving mouthwatering cuisine from around the world. There's live music nearly every night of the week and the club scene is legendary.

Shopping

From the lifestyle shops of The Lanes to the unique shops of Hove; the retro chic of the North Laine to the big-name stores of Churchill Square and Brighton Marina, shopping in Brighton really is retail paradise.

Eating Out

Whether you’re after award winning cuisine, veggie treats, a tasty beachfront brunch or delicious cheap eats, Brighton is bursting at the seams with every type of international cuisine on the menu.

Recreation & Sport
