When to visit Brighton & Hove
The best time to visit Brighton depends on what you want out of your trip. Unlike many British destinations, it does experience generally good weather throughout the summer, and the winters are quite mild. Summer is usually the best time to visit Brighton; it comes alive from May onwards when it hosts the Brighton Festival and a series of music festivals. August is probably one of the busiest times to book holiday accommodation, as not only is the weather significantly better, but it also when Brighton hosts its annual Pride event, which attracts thousands to the city for a weekend of great events and attractions. Heights in August are at around 20 degrees Celsius which is a lot higher than the rest of the UK, and in January, the weather is a lot cooler, but can still be an interesting time to visit and experience the British seaside in one of our Brighton beach houses. The great thing about Brighton is that it extends far beyond a mere seaside destination; there is much to be enjoyed as a city culturally which makes it a year-round destination.
The Royal Pavilion and other points of interest
During your stay in your Brighton holiday rental, you will have plenty of things to do and see, and some of the most stunning Regency architecture that has inspired films and books for centuries in popular culture. Take a look at just some of the things that you can enjoy here:
- Brighton Palace Pier: One of the finest examples of Victorian seaside architecture, this pier was opened in 1899 in the holiday boom of the seaside resort town. It is still home to many fairground rides, restaurants, bars and places to sit and enjoy the sea.
- Royal Pavilion: At first glance, it is hard to imagine that this is a British landmark! Built in a traditional Regency style, it overlooks ponds and is a palace built in a distinctive Asian style. You can wander around and admire the rooms and gardens, and it was originally built for King George IV.
- Brighton Marina: A working harbour which is a popular place to book a place to stay in Brighton. You can find many retail and commercial shops, alongside cafes and restaurants. It was first opened in 1978.
- The Lanes: A series of iconic shops and boutiques located down small winding streets and alleyways. They are famous for finding one-off items of furniture, clothing, and retro items, and certainly warrant a visit.
- Brighton Toy and Model Museum: For a step back in time, visit this museum which has over ten thousand artefacts dating back from the 18th century onwards, such as train collections and antique toys from the UK, US and Europe.
- Booth Museum of Natural History: A collection of birds, fossils, bones, butterflies and more. It is still very much in its original style, in that of a Victorian collector, and is a great day out.
- Old Police Cells Museum: Learn about the history of the Sussex police force here, with an fascinating glimpse into the mods and rockers era and far more, dating back to 1830.
