Brighton Beach & Seafront

Things to Do on Brighton Beach
If you’re feeling active then there are lots of sports to try on Brighton beach from watersports such as kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding to classic beach sports such as volleyball and Frisbee. If that sounds too hectic then why not indulge in the simple pleasure of a refreshing paddle and maybe skim a few pebbles across the water? Or if even that is too much then grab a deckchair and really relax!
Soak up the cosmopolitan vibe
It’s not just about the water as the beachfront promenade is a destination in its own right! The arches along the beachfront are home to a variety of businesses. By Brighton Pier you’ll find great galleries in the Artists’ Quarter. As you stroll along you see more bars and restaurants serving everything from ice-cream to high end seafood. The arches by the West Pier and i360 are home to independent traders selling fashion, furniture and photography.
Of course a day at the beach has to include a trip to the iconic Brighton Pier with its helter skelter and arcade games. Just next door you’ll find Sea Life Brighton home to giant turtles, sharks and seahorses. Head west and you’ll find the free Fishing Museum, tracing the city’s origins as a sleepy fishing village and a bit further along you’ll find British Airways i360 – the world’s tallest moving observation tower. Glide 450 feet into the air to see Brighton & Hove including the vibrant Brighton Beach, in all its glory!
After dark, Brighton Beach really comes alive with Brighton’s seafront clubs and bars nestling underneath the Victorian beachfront arches opening their doors for some of the best club nights in the country.
