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.

  • The best thing we did on our holiday!! One of the most beautiful aquariums I've ever been to and a really good way to spend a few hours when it starts raining in Brighton! A highlight for me was seeing the giant turtles being fed and going on the glass bottomed boat over the big tank at the end to see them close up. Next time I go I'm gonna do the backstage tour and experience everything the aquarium has to offer!
  • Even though it's really quite small, it's an interesting time out for the kids. There are a couple of small rock pool displays where they can touch some sea creatures and a reasonable size ray pen. All in all a good visit but don't plan on spending a long time in there, an hour maybe 2 tops
  • Amazing! Totally worth the price. Such a great variety of fishes and marine animals. You can touch star fish and walk through the clear ocean tunnel. You'll see sharks and rays! Great fun for the whole family!
  • Really easy to see the wide variety of animals! Lovely architecture. Downside is it's a bit pricey, £52 for two adults and a child! Also, it would be nice if they turned down the constant background music/sound.
  • After visiting Sea Life today, i can say that i am massively disappointed with the lack of animal diversity they have there. For the price they are charging you would expect the facilities they offer to be one section of many but instead you are left asking yourself, is that it? The highlight of the experience was stroking a starfish.. that says it all really. Please lower your prices or expand the diversity and offer us more to see.
