Take a seafront walk from Brighton to Hove, starting out at the iconic Brighton Pier, and heading west along the beachfront promenade.
Along the walk you’ll see the artists’ studios built in to the arches, as well as restaurants, bars and cafés. One of the arches is now home to Brighton Fishing Museum (free entry) which depicts the city’s origins as a sleepy fishing village. In the summer months there are Punch and Judy shows on the beach opposite the museum as well as a traditional carousel ride.
Carry on walking, passing the skeletal frame of the West Pier crumbling into the sea, until you reach the Peace Statue and cross the boundary into Hove.
The Hove Lawns are a great spot for a picnic – on one side of you are rows of colourful beach huts by the seaside and on the other is the stunning Regency architecture of Adelaide Crescent and Brunswick Square.
