A seaside town with an edge, Brighton is London’s hippie, free spirited younger sibling that has plenty of things to do.
It’s hard to keep children away from the beach, so start your day off with a walk along Brighton Pier that’s filled with arcades, traditional seaside stalls and fairground attractions. Pack a towel and change of clothes just incase that light paddle turns into a soaking in the beachfront paddling pool.
Once you’ve all dried off, its time to get back in the water but without getting wet at SEA Life Brighton. Walk through a tunnel and watch amazing sea creatures swim above your head, learn all about your favourite fishes and spot Nemo swimming in the reef.
With more to see on a Brighton family day out you can decide whether to tour the city by bus or on foot. The Brighton City Sightseeing tour offers great commentary and insights into hot spots in the day and night, whereas The Chocolate Ecstasy Walking Tour is three hours of delicious fun taken at a slower pace to savour the flavour of the most interesting chocolate boutiques in the area.
If you have an appetite for culture The Hove Museum and Art Gallery is the most family friendly and home to beautiful crafts, toys and local artifacts. Finally make the most of the wide range of independent stores and pick up a small piece of Brighton’s eclectic and vibrant personality to take home with you.
