Cool off between games at the beach in Brighton

Brighton & Hove, East Sussex

Turn your Rugby World Cup trip to Brighton & Hove into a south coast seaside break packed with beach fun, boutique shopping and family entertainment.


This laid-back beachside destination is famous for its fresh air, fish and chips and traditional seaside entertainment, and a visit to Brighton isn’t complete without experiencing the seaside delights of the quintessentially English Brighton Pier, with its old-school dodgems, helter skelter and carousel – not to mention clouds of pink candyfloss and sticks of colourful Brighton rock.

The breezy Brighton coast is the perfect place to try watersports such as wakeboarding, powerboating and windsurfing, or there’s the rolling green scenery of the South Downs National Park, which you can explore by mountain bike, on foot or even by kayak.

Kids will love spotting colourful reef fish, tropical sharks and the resident giant turtle through the glass-bottomed boat at Sea Life Brighton, and woolly animal friends are just a 45-minute drive away at The Llama Park, where friendly llamas roam, along with a herd of reindeer.

Explore Brighton’s bohemian charms in the quaint, winding alleyways of The Lanes, where you can browse hip boutiques brimming with vintage clothing, sparkling jewellery and all manner of kitsch and quirky goodies.
