  • It is very small museum, but very nice. When you walk on Brighton seafront, you should go have a look..
  • It's free museum, but very small. I spend about one minute there, not really my "cup of tea", however for someone it can be interesting.
  • A great place to catch up with local history. Easy to find. Surrounded by some tasty fresh seafood.
  • Back in time to when life was tougher and simpler. Cool boats and info.
  • Good meeting point

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.
