Sitting on the south coast, just an hour away from London, the vibrant city of Brighton and Hove has a long history of welcoming visitors. Brighton became a fashionable place to stay in the 18th century, with the construction of the Prince Regent’s exotic residence, The Royal Pavilion, and the city continues to delight guests to this day.
Many hotels in Brighton reflect the city’s past, being impressive Victorian buildings with a real sense of tradition, although there are also a number of quirky, contemporary and budget options available.
The famous beach is one of the city’s best spots to hang out, and it’s possible to find a cheap Brighton hotel with sea views. Featured in countless movies, TV shows and books over the years, key attractions include the two Piers – the traditional seaside amusements of the Palace Pier, and the now-ruined West Pier, which makes for a dramatic sight at sunset.
The Lanes and North Laines are intriguing side streets, filled with a number of bars, cafes and Brighton hotels, as well as a unique selection of shops. You can find something to suit every budget, from designer jewellers to cool record stores, and there are plenty of vintage bargains to be had among the stalls of Snooper’s Paradise.
The city has always been a draw to creative types, and the Brighton Festival is well worth a visit, featuring everything from contemporary dance to book readings. The summer months see the city stage a number of events, including the colourful Brighton Pride.
Make some noise
Music runs through Brighton’s veins, from the infamous Mods and Rockers rivalries of the 60s to today’s thriving scene, which has launched acts as diverse as Fatboy Slim, The Kooks and Bat for Lashes, and there are scores of venues dotted around the city putting on shows every night of the week. We particularly recommend the Concorde 2, a beautiful Victorian building right on the beach, which hosts the latest buzz bands, and the Dome, a grand theatre within the grounds of the Pavilion, where ABBA gave their Eurovision-winning performance.
Party the night away
Booking in to a cheap hotel in Brighton is a great way to experience the city’s thriving nightlife. One of the centres of UK gay culture, there are a wealth of clubs and bars to choose from, including the iconic gay club Revenge, hip Digital and boutique Bar 76, while up-and-coming comedians frequently stop by the intimate space of the Komedia.
