Suitable for all ages
Venue type: Outdoor
Brighton Beach is a long pebbly affair housed in a cove which means it's safe for shallow family swimming and offers handy southerly wind protection. There's no lifeguard cover at all though so do be careful and don't take inflatables along. Plenty of room on the beach however it's tricky to play ball games and whatnot on the pebbles, so perhaps better to explore and collect instead. Not really sand castling territory either!
Stroll along Middle Brighton Pier and enjoy the amusements and the sight of chaps fishing; relax in historic gardens or soak-up city views and do a bit of shopping. It's a nice trip for those who don't actually intend to linger that long at the beach, so great for slightly out of season!
Immediate vicinity amenities include accessible toilets, plus nearby are the historic Middle Brighton Sea Baths and many galleries, antique shops, and seaside restaurants and cafes. It's well worth taking older types to explore the the Artists' Quarter on the lower promenade too where you'll find a great many things to look at.
