74 Best Brighton Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Only an hour away from the biggest city in Britain, Brighton offers a peaceful respite from the big-city vibes of London. No matter when you visit, you will glimpse summer on the horizon as you walk along the pier or indulge in the arcade games. It’s a town full of nostalgia and relaxation, but there is also a lot of appeal for clubbers and night owls, especially for those who are a part of the LGBT community. Brighton has also inspired a great deal of Graham Greene’s work, so fans of his novels will find home in this town as well as in his stories.

Top Brighton Attractions

Brighton was just a fledgling resort when the Regent – later George IV, discovered it as a destination for ‘taking the waters’. Fashionable society followed and Brighton was soon known as ‘London by the Sea’. George was responsible for the fairytale Royal Pavilion, which is today, sited in the Pavilion Gardens. The Brighton Beach has a number of Regency buildings and Amusement Parks. Take the world’s first vertical cable car, the British Airways i360 for a wonderful view of the whole of Brighton.

Kids & Family

Brighton (Palace) Pier opened in 1899, and has rides and attractions such as Turbo Coaster, the Dragonfly or a Carousel that the kids will enjoy. Try out the Brighton Treasure Trail Hunt with the kids, for a murder mystery flavoured hunt through the cultural and heritage sites of the town.

Shopping & Nightlife

The Lanes are a fabulous area of narrow lanes with quaint historic shops. Don’t get lost in the maze of streets! For more modern feel go to the Churchill Square Shopping Centre. How about a night out in the historic Theatre Royal Brighton?

Day Tours

Brighton is an ideal base for a day tour of Stonehenge, and Bath. Trips to Cambridge and Eton are also popular.
