English Tourism Week is back from Saturday 30th March until Sunday 7th April to celebrate the start of the summer season and of course there's lots going on in Brighton! So whether you're planning a day trip or a short break there are plenty of ways to enjoy English Tourism Week (I guess English Tourism 9 Days doesn't sound as good!)


Did you know that the iconic Brighton Palace Pier first opened to the public 120 years ago?! Join a Pier Tour to find out more about this famous attraction.  

If you're being a tourist for the day (or longer) then you'll want to see as much as possible so why not take advantage of the Brighton Explorer Pass and save up to 35% when visiting British Airways i360, the Royal Pavilion and Sea Life?  

Plus during English Tourism Week you can watch or if you're very daring sign-up to take part in the a special i360 Night iDrop. For the first time the abseilers will be descending 450 feet from the pod, in the dark!

There is still time to catch Stephen Jones Hats at the Royal Pavilion - this fabulous exhibition is featured throughout the building and includes pieces worn by Princess Diana; Lady Gaga and Kylie. Although my personal favourite has to be the Pac-Man hat!

Family Fun

English Tourism Week has plenty on offer to keep the whole family entertained. Take part in Sea Life's Jawsome Sharks event and see if you can complete the mission to find the missing shark teeth.

You can also take a step back in time at the immersive Phileas Fogg's World of Adventures - travel around the world and help Phileas Fogg complete his quest.

Brighton is also a great base for exploring into Sussex - Wakehurst has two fantastic family events running: Horrible Sceince and Surviving or Thriving. Head east from the city and take a trip to Drusillas to ride their new Rainforest Carousel.


There are lots of Brighton events happening during English Tourism Week so if you feel in need of a chuckle then try Komedia's Krater Comedy Club or Paul Merton's Impro Chums at Brighton Dome.

If you fancy dancing the night away then book your tickets to Neon Moon's Wonderland Mansion Party there is also MOVES Festival which in addition to live music there will be two club nights featuring Afrobeats and Bashment vibes. In addition to this we have the new WAVE podcast festival featuring Richard Herring, Romesh Ranganathan and many more...

Shopping, Eating & Drinking

Brighton has always been known as a shopper's paradise and this Spring the famous Lanes area is getting a new addition with the Hanningtons Lane bringing differnet shops in to the area as well as The Flinthouse - a new restaurant & bar from The Gingerman group.

If shopping has made you thirsty then why not pop into The Old Ship Hotel for an English Countyr Cocktail for the special English Tourism Week price of just £6.50. Plus share a selfie of you enjoying your cocktail for a chance to win Afternoon Tea for 2!
