Royal Pavillion, Brighton

A step in any direction from your Brighton hotel and you’re close to the shingly beach, the winding shopping lanes and the glorious mock-Indian Royal Pavilion.

Historic Brighton

You can snatch glimpses of Brighton’s emblematic Pavilion as you trot down North Street, warming you up for Prince George’s lavish interior of chinoiserie decor. The ravaged beauty of the Grade I-listed West Pier glitters at sunset when the starlings swoop between its defunct ironwork. Explore Preston Manor whose 20 renovated rooms evoke a gentler Edwardian age.

Art and museums in Brighton

Peruse fashions from the Regency period to the 21st century at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery within the Pavilion estate or take the kids to the Wizard’s Attic at Hove Museum and Art Gallery, a treasure trove of old teddies, dolls and games.

Quirky things to do in Brighton

At Stanmer on the outskirts, the Earthship Brighton showcases cutting-edge eco-friendly methods and looks like a Star Trek starter home in Tellytubby Land. Visits inspire green living, supposedly.

Events in Brighton

If you’re blinded by ostrich feathers and pink satin sequinned outfits, it’s Gay Pride weekend. Every August, Brighton hotels fill up for the parade which winds its way to Preston Park for the mother of all carnivals. The Children’s Parade kicks off the Brighton Festival in May, when bucketloads of artistes deluge the city.
