4/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web
Only an hour's train ride from London, Brighton Beach has been a popular attraction since the early 20th century. Stroll the promenade and choose from a selection of restaurants, amusement arcades, nightclubs, and bars. Relax on the shingle beach at high tide or on the soft sands that emerge at low tide. Avoid getting wet by using the Monarch's Way footpath, which runs along the seafront above the beach.

  • No sand . You can't walk on it . It's big stones and pebbles that you nearly break your neck walking on . It looks nice but apart for that it's bloody horrible to try and walk on . X

  • Eclectic place with an amazing mixture of people, types, likes and unusual architecture to boot. From the Lanes, to the pier and the night-life - with flamboyant gay clubs and fine dining - Brighton is a unique and unusual place.

  • A diplomatic 3 star. It's a beach in England - that immediately caps it! But it is fun to be there or generally on the sea front. Dont expect sand or a particularly tidy beach. The water is basically brown. I'm sure any foreign visitors would give it 1*, but hey, it's what we've got.
  • Marvellous place for a single day trip. Excellent when travelling with blue skies. Perfect for sunbathing on stone beach.
  • Food, sunshine (on good days), beach (pebbles, not sand), and happy people... what could go wrong?
  • Lovely beach. Ignore those who say beaches must be sand. They suck.
