Enjoy shopping and culture on a city break by the sea

Brighton & Hove, East Sussex

Whether you’re looking for top notch restaurants or bohemian independent shopping, Brighton offers urban glamour by the bucket load.

The North Laine and Lanes areas have over 500 independent retailers within a 5 mile radius, and with everything from vintage fashion to contemporary designer homeware, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to sourcing an elegant keepsake.

Take a sunset stroll along the promenade or impress your companion by booking a box at the Theatre Royal Brighton, before retiring to one of the fantastic seafront hotels which overlook the stunning Brighton & Hove seaside vista.

For party peeps in search of entertainment, the city offers a cornucopia of choice from comedy to cabaret. And if music is your raison d’etre then there are many enchanting nightspots where you can dance from dusk til dawn, catch an old school band or see fresh musical talent; after all, this is the city that spawned the Kooks, Rizzle Kicks and Royal Blood.
