Brighton Beach

Brighton beach is a long pebble beach attached to a vibrant town on the south coast under an hour’s journey from London. Although not one of the prettiest beaches in the UK it boasts an excellent location within Brighton and Hove.

As one of the best entertainment stretches in the UK you have plenty to do in the day and also at night with pier, seaside arcades, funfairs and the classic Regency architecture of Brighton itself.

The historic seafront Volks Electric Railway runs all the way to Brighton Marina from Brighton Pier regularly during the Summer season.

If you include Brighton and Hove Beach you have nearly 11km of the seafront.

Facilities are wide ranged as would expect: toilets, cafe, restaurants and bars, Brighton Pier, promenade, seaside arcades, funfair, electric railway, entertainment, beach volleyball.

Brighton Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
