The Brighton Palace Pier is an iconic Brighton attraction and a brilliant place for kids. It is a great sight to behold once you make it down to the beach. There are all kinds of fun games, activities and rides to enjoy when you enter the pier. It is also a great place to enjoy an ice cream and take in the amazing views out to sea and over Brighton. The Brighton Palace Pier and other attractions are also easy to reach if you are travelling to Brighton by train.

The unmistakable Royal Pavilion is an amazing sight to behold having taken inspiration from Indo-Islamic architecture which makes it stand out in the centre of Brighton It was built as an exotic palace for King George IV in 1787 and it has lovely grounds which are perfect for a relaxing picnic.

    I have never been to Brighton but it always sounds great. There are so many places I want to visit once all this is over, we were hoping to holiday in the UK this summer, but maybe we will have to do a couple of holidays next year instead.

      We are lucky to live about 40 minutes away from Brighton, but find it easier and cheaper to go by train when we visit. We love Brighton especially the lanes, and then there is the pier so much to do x

    When I was serving in the Army in Germany, back in the late 80’s and early 90’s, one of my regrets was not visiting the UK. I would love to go there, especially to Brighton! What a beautiful place!

    I don’t think Brighton is somewhere I have been before, but it one of those quintessential English seaside resorts, I really should go at some point as I would love to look around.

      It is a lovely little seaside town with the older lanes and newer shopping area, and the pier is a must see x

    We have decided after the lockdown we are going to be taking lots of day trips and local trips around the UK instead of heading abroad so Brighton is on our list of places to visit

    Brighton is one place that we haven’t visited as yet, I’d love to do a tour of the south coast and take in all the sights.

      It is not far from us so is the beach we visit, although find it cheaper to go by train than to drive and park

    I’ve visited Brighton a few times. It’s a great place for a day trip or weekend away. I quite liked The Sea Life centre although it doesn’t compare with the one in London.

    I love the ceiling in the sea life centre in Brighton, it is really apt with the lockdown theme of rainbows
