48 Hours in Brighton
The seaside town of Brighton is on England’s south coast nestled between the sea and the countryside providing a wealth of things to do.
Day 1: Once you've dropped your bags off at your Brighton Hotel, head to the Royal Pavilion also known as the Brighton Pavilion built in the early 1800s. This building is not only eye catching but the interior is just amazing. The gardens are wonderful to stroll around and in the winter months they change into an ice skating rink.
Lunch: Brighton Marina is a busy yacht harbour where you can have lunch overlooking the marina in one of the many eateries. The chic shopping hub within the marina has boutiques, galleries and craft shops to wander around.
Afternoon: If you fancy visiting a museum there are a few to choose from. The Old Police Cells museum is dedicated to charting the history of policing in Sussex from 1830 to present day and gives a glimpse into the past documenting the graffiti of the mods and rockers era. If you like art, The Grange Museum Art Gallery and tea rooms are worth a look round. There are varied exhibitions of work by Sussex artists and schools which change every few weeks. The tea garden is situated within a beautiful walled garden.
Evening: Our Brighton Hotel does include dinner, alternatively Brighton is packed full of restaurants serving plenty of seafood and is famous for its wide selection of vegetarian meals. Try the Salt Room offering perfect views of Brighton seafront serving freshly caught fish.
Day 2: The British Airways i360 Tower is a recently added attraction. It transports visitors 162 metres up into the sky to take in breath taking 360 degree views of Brighton and Hove. Take a stroll to the Brighton Palace Pier which is a stunning example of a Victorian pleasure pier with fairground attractions, two arcades and a children’s indoor play area. At the beginning of December there are also Christmas markets to browse around on the pier.
