Brighton made a little bit of seaside history on 1 April 1980 when it opened its naturist beach - the first public naturist beach in the UK.

Britain's most accessible naturist beach, Brighton Naturist Beach is within easy walking distance of central Brighton.

The naturist beach can be found at the eastern end of the main Brighton beach - approximately a 1 mile walk east of Brighton Pier towards Brighton Marina. Signs are provided to indicate where the naturist beach commences and large banks of pebbles have been created to provide further demarcation / screening.

During the summer, if you do not wish to walk to the beach, you can board the Volks Electric Railway close to Brighton Pier. As you head towards the end of the line, you will see the big banks of pebbles on your right hand side. Disembark at Black Rock station, and then the naturist beach is less than a 5 minute walk back towards Brighton Pier.

Did you know? The nudist beach is officially known as the Cliff Bathing Beach.
