With its history of architectural elegance and royal extravagance, it’s no wonder that today’s Brighton is such a colorful, fashionable city. Home to one of the most vibrant LGBTQ scenes in the United Kingdom, it is renowned for its music, cabaret, clubbing, and shopping, along with the classical beauty of its Regency-style buildings. The South Coast town has been famous for its entertainments since the late 18th century, when the future Prince Regent (later George IV) had the Royal Pavilion built as a pleasure palace; many of its graceful terraces and arcades date from the early 1800s, when George held court here. Brighton’s famous pebbled beach and sea air have tempted many to relocate from the nearby capital ever since, causing it to become known as London-by-the-Sea; and the tiny neighboring seafront town of Hove, now incorporated into the city, is now one of its most sought-after neighborhoods.
London Gatwick (LGW) is only 30 miles from Brighton, and there are trains that will connect you straight there from the airport in about 30 minutes. The strong rail link to London is one of the reasons it has become so popular for people to commute from the coast. If you choose not to rent a car, there are plenty of taxis and rideshare services, as well as bikeshare options and a good bus network.
Brighton weather is at its best in the summer months, between May and September, when temperatures average around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and conditions are the driest. The springtime can get pretty cold, with maximum temperatures ranging between 50 and 65 degrees; fall is usually slightly warmer than that. Winter temperatures average between the mid-40s and 50 degrees, but can drop considerably further. It’s often blustery along the seafront, so layers are essential, and a windbreaker or waterproof jacket is a sensible option. Even though this is the South Coast, don’t expect the sea to be warm; you’ll need a wetsuit if you’re planning on spending long periods in the water, although the water temperatures can peak at 66 degrees in the height of August.
This absurdly splendid palace, a confection of peaked domes, colonnades, and minarets, is the work of John Nash, responsible for much of the town’s Regency architecture. The Indian- and Chinese-inspired interiors are even more extravagant, and there are outrageous stories that accompany this royal collection of treasures.
Opened in 1899, the Palace pier has been a popular attraction since the late Victorian era, when it used to host live entertainment in its theater. Its amusement rides and cotton candy kiosks retain a traditional seaside charm, and offer a haunting view of the derelict West Pier, which burned down in 2003.
This labyrinth of narrow streets between the seashore and the city center was the bustling heart of town in the 16th and 17th centuries, when Brighton was no more than a fishing village. Today the Lanes are a shopper’s delight, their quaint alleyways crammed with quirky stores, designer jewelry shops, and independent cafes.
