Brighton Beach, Brighton
(4/5 based on 2,600+ 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. Plan to see Brighton Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Brighton itinerary maker.

  • A nice enough beach for the culture and entertainment rather than to sit out on as it is very stony. 
  • Started off by the pier and walked west. The beach area was clean and tidy. The little shops under the arches and the area surround ing is being gradually done up 
  • We were on a trip to Southern England and this was our 4th destination. Really loved the long walk by the pier. It was calm and beautiful all around. The place was gearing up for the Christmas fair an...  more »

  • One of the best Great Britain has to offer for beaches. It's busy but sandy and plenty of little attractions. I listened to music with my locally made ice-cream.
  • Just like most beaches Brighton beach is the place where the sea meets the land, in Brighton! The beach itself is made up of pebbles which you wouldn't really want to lay down on as they're extremely uncomfortable but each year hundreds of thousands of people seem to choose this place to come to lay on the beach, lord only knows why, it really is painful! Anyway, the beach is very wide so there's lots of space for you to try to move away from the countless homeless, drunks and drug addicts that seem to have overrun this nice city.
  • Really cool place for the family day out , also don't forget to check some cute backstreets full of hipster vibes and some fine art graffiti!!! Feeling for a tasty? Head to Redroster for a top coffee and avocado toast!
  • Pretty ugly as far as beaches go, but hey, it is the OCEAN... worth going if you need to rest or munch a fish and chips.
  • Fantastic apart from the seagulls. And the arcade is great my son won a few things n us adults loved it too. 👍👍👍
