Things To Do In Brighton

Brighton might be a seaside resort, seeing hordes of sun-seekers flocking to its beach every summer, but it has much more to offer than just pier-based arcade games, fish and chips, and sticks of rock.

Head along the seafront towards Brighton Marina and you'll come across SEA LIFE Brighton, a fantastic indoor attraction and the perfect place for a rainy day. Not only is it the world's oldest operating aquarium, but within you'll find more than 5,500 species of sea life and you can even see them up close with the glass bottom boat experience. There's also a rain forest adventure and Victorian arcade to enjoy.

At the opposite end of the seafront is the British Airways i360, a 450-foot viewing tower where you can experience amazing views across Brighton, the beautiful South Downs and beyond. If you live nearby, you may even be able to spot your house!

For sightseeing in Brighton a bit closer to the ground, why not hop aboard a City Sightseeing bus? Use the hop-on-hop-off bus to get to Brighton Marina for the SEA LIFE Centre, or visit top spots such as Old Steine Gardens, Brighton Palace Pier and the Clock Tower.

Active kids will enjoy days out at Barracudas Activity Camps, where they can try a range of different sports and activities and make plenty of new friends, while the adults do a spot of shopping or taking some time out to visit the Royal Pavilion, a luxurious palace built for King George IV, right in the city centre.

For something a bit different, Brighton Sewer Tours (accessed underneath the pier) provides a really interesting day out. Climb through the tunnels, up and down ladders, and learn all about the working sewer system, from its development by Victorians to its use today.

Other rainy day ideas for activities in Brighton include LaserZone and ImmotionVR, both just a short walk from Brighton Palace Pier.
