Brighton

We say
Busy, brash, offbeat ... Brighton has never been the prettiest of our seaside resorts, but it can't be beaten for sheer buzz. From the hipster cafes and indie shops of the North Laine to the contemporary art galleries and seafront fish 'n' chip shops, it's all about hedonism. Even its sights - the kitsch Royal Pavilion and the soaring i360 observation tower - were built with fun in mind. For the ultimate stay, rent a stylish apartment.

Best of Brighton says

At any time of year, Brighton is one of the UK’s most vibrant and exciting resorts. Aside from the traditional seaside attractions – a lively pier and pebble beach – you’ll find a thriving arts scene, cool independent shops and cuisines from across the world, from sushi bars to Italian ice cream parlours.

  • Year-round attractions
  • Thriving arts scene
  • Cool apartments

Nightlife is never in short supply, with a huge variety of live music venues, cool bars and a club scene driven by a well-established LGBTQ community.

Brighton has plenty of B&Bs and budget hotels, but whether you’re coming as a couple, a family or a group of friends, we recommend renting your own house or apartment. You can find one with seafront views close to the centre or in neighbouring Hove.
