Free-thinking. Fun. Quirky. Put your hands up for Brighton.
If you’re a veteran raver, you might have been to legendary Big Beach Boutique gigs back in the day. But Brighton’s party pedigree stretches back further than Fatboy Slim – George IV enjoyed it so much that he built the Royal Pavilion as his personal pleasure palace. As you do.
When you want a big night out in Brighton these days, try heavy basslines at Patterns, retro arcade games at The World’s End or swish cocktails at No. 32. But there’s lots for families too. Like traditional seaside fun at Brighton Palace Pier. Monkeys, meerkats and red penguins at Drusillas Park. And next-level selfies at the Upside Down House.
Want to detox after a wild weekend? The Beach Box Spa is a wood-fired sauna experience right on Brighton beach where you can dip in the sea between treatments. A real eye-opener.
Brighton is (currently) the 3rd happiest place to live in the country - and we're struggling to find what's not to like either.
