If you have never been to Brighton, 2016 is a great time to go. You don’t need to take our word for it or the views of the students at our Brighton English school, this is the opinion of millions of users on the massive travel website TripAdvisor.com.
The site recently announced what it considers the world’s leading destinations for 2016, based on positive feedback and reviews of categories including attractions, restaurants and accommodation from the TripAdvisor community.
Brighton was ranked the sixth best holiday location in the world and the only city in Britain to make it into TripAdvisor’s top ten destinations.
According to TripAdvisor:
“Londoners have been traveling to Brighton for beach getaways ever since the railway arrived here in 1841. The pebbled beach, Brighton Pier’s amusement arcade and the Royal Pavilion are the main sights, but you’ll also find hundreds of pubs and clubs catering to an energetic crowd.”
Brighton is only 130 km from London, half an hour from Gatwick Airport by train and approximately 2 hours from Heathrow Airport – you have no excuse!
Top Five Things to do in Brighton
1. Visit Royal Pavilion
This much loved landmark is easily Brighton’s most famous building. The Oriental-style pavilion has architecture you would expect to see in India more than on the south coast of England.
2. Explore North Laine
Artists, bohemians and culture-lovers must come here. This area is full of unique boutiques, theatres, cafes and galleries.
3. Play games on the Pier
Buy an ice-cream or some traditional Brighton Rock, play the penny arcades, visit the funfair and be amazed at the bravery of the local seagulls.
4. Walk the Seafront
The city’s seafront offers miles of entertainment and activities. Enjoy the architecture and sea views, stop for a drink at a traditional English pub, and eat your fish & chips on Brighton Beach.
5. Shop at the Marina
Brighton Marina is one the largest in Europe, as well as a picturesque mooring place for boats and yachts. It’s a very popular shopping and entertainment complex with a busy, vibrant atmosphere.
