Where to stay in Brighton

During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends Brighton is a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas most frequented by tourists. Avoid getting stressed out by staying at a self-catering apartment or a private B&B farther away from this part of town. Brighton's famous nightlife may be a bit far from there, but you can still enjoy seafront walks, good restaurants, and excellent shopping. Private seafront lodgings allow you to enjoy your stay quietly in comfort, while remaining within walking distance of Brighton's best beaches.

  • Love this market, highlights were Tea and honey, the new potter at the Potters thumb, the terrariums at Miniature and moss, and the gorgeous scoop and weigh at the food shed. Everyone should pay this ...  more »
  • A Bento box and Kimchi at Kor Pan (Korean and Japanese food) were delicious, as was ice cream from Brett Mather's emporium.  more »
  • should have read other reviews as we went last Tuesday and there was hardly anything there, but what was there was very good mix of local produce, craft and vintage/retro items. we parked in Sainsbury...  more »

  • A tad empty on a week day but a nice variety of shops. The ice-cream shop near the entrance is great!
  • The revamped Open Market is a welcome addition to the now up and coming London Road area. With interesting stalls and shops, this is a place where you can truly buy local. My personal favourite shop at the moment is Tea and Honey. It tends to be a lot quieter during the week, with just the main units being open rather than the market stalls. I have yet to visit on a Saturday when it is a lot busier.
  • Great fruit and veg. much cheaper than the supermarket. loads of inexpensive cheese and meat. I do question the ethicacy of the meat though.
  • There's usually an interesting market on at the weekend, and it's different each time. Good location, and lots of good food/drink options.
  • Great variety of fresh produce. Check out the fruit and veg shops and the cheese shop where you can get quality stuff on the cheap. Looking for lunch? Little miss piggies has the best selection of gourmet sausage rolls (5 for £3, 10 for £5) The flying saucer in the corner offers some homemade treats where you can sit in comfortable seating while you watch the busy folks swim by whilst sipping on a tasty brew. Other cuisines on offer in there include japanese, greek and a good old fried breakfast! Something for everyone :) Also there's artsy clothing stores, antiques and crafts so it's well worth a visit especially on days when they have craft a fayre on!!
