Brighton & Hove - a lovely British coastal town
Brighton & Hove is a Bristish coastal town and a popular holiday destination on the south coast of England in East Sussex. The area serves as a magnetic draw for both visitors. Located in East Sussex, the city originally comprised the towns separately before they merged in 1997 to become one municipality.
While the city offers historical architecture and idyllic landscapes, it owes its reputation to its vivacious seafront. It is a long stretch of land that serves as the centre of entertainment, attractions, and pleasure. Visitors will understand why this coastline continues to enrapture sightseers as their destination for an enjoyable seaside holiday.
Stroll along the pebble beach and pier, or take a ride in the Big Wheel which offers fabulous views of the sea and city. Nearby is the Sea Life Centre, a fun day for the entire family. Shopping enthusiasts can enjoy Churchill Square shopping centre and boutiques The Lanes and North Laine shopping area with its narrow streets. Art lovers will love the Artists Quarter, home to art galleries.
Search for the best 5 star and cheapest guest houses for your next holiday. Stay at the seafront, in the city centre, Kemp Town area, or in the Hove area, which is generally a little quieter. Many have free Wi-Fi in public areas, and in the morning you can start your day with a freshly cooked breakfast.
City Activities and Attractions
The beaches offer many waterside entertainments for their visitors. Sporty individuals can attend the Hove Lagoon Watersports centre to participate in an array of activities. They include sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding. For those who enjoy quiet leisure, visitors can stroll along the Palace Pier, taking in the sights of yachts and the smells of popcorn and cotton floss.
If you wish to explore the city sights, visit the North Laine and Cultural Quarter for sightseeing and shopping. It offers 300 stores, which include vintage and eco-friendly ware. Nature lovers can stroll through the Royal Pavilion Gardens, or take pictures of the stunning countryside view atop the Edwardian Foredown Tower.
Even the smallest travellers will find entertainment at the Brighton Toy and Model Museum. The display of 10,000 exhibits offers antique and modern toys and model trains will amuse and enthrall.
Cheap Seafront B&Bs
Owing to its tourist locale, the city offers plenty of reasonably-priced accommodations, such as bed and breakfast or guest houses, along the seaside. B&Bs are ideal for visitors that require accommodation for the night, and a tasty breakfast to start off their day. Many bed and breakfast establishments offer family rooms and complimentary car parking.
Unlike hotels, B&Bs and guest houses are considerably cheaper. You do not have to pay extra for amenities you will ever use, and you make use of your room when you need it. Although there are cheap B&B properties available, owing to their lower cost and the sizeable tourist population, you may find many booked during the summer season.
Always book ahead and reserve for your visit. If you find a bed & breakfast fully booked, employ the secret of the smart traveller, and seek out bed and breakfasts or guest houses closer to the centre of the city. Because they are slightly less in proximity to the coastline, those establishments typically have more single and family rooms available for a cheaper price.
You will still have easy entry to the beach with affordable transportation options, such as buses, taxis, or bicycles. However, now you will have better access to explore city attractions away from the shoreline. This is especially useful if weather will not permit a beach visit.
If you rent a car, you will find a larger number of free parking space available at urban centre guest houses. Moreover, restaurants located in the town centre operate at lower costs for the locals. Seafront eateries can cost twice as much, but dining in urban restaurants will save you hundreds of pounds.
Wherever your accommodation resides, Brighton and Hove will provide you with cheap bed and breakfasts and cultural attractions that will make your holiday memorable and fun.
