One of the quirkiest, vibrant cities in the UK, Brighton has plenty of things to do whilst you visit.

There are plenty of independent restaurants and coffee shops to try out, but there are also many activities to do if you want to get moving.

Here are our top 5 recommendations:


BTN Bikes On The Seafront

Visiting the beach is a must when in Brighton!

Come rain or shine it’s something that needs to be ticked off. Instead of walking along the seafront, why not rent one of the many bikes dotted around Brighton and take a cycle along the promenade.

It’s a great activity to do with friends and you can take in views of the old pier and I360 whilst getting your exercise in. There’s an abundance of cafes to stop off at along the way to get a coffee or ice cream (weather dependant).

Hove Lagoon

If you love water sports or fancy learning how to paddleboard, then this is the perfect spot for you. Hove Lagoon run a variety of water sport lessons including stand up paddleboarding, wakeboarding and wind surfing. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, they run sessions for all abilities.

It’s a great opportunity to learn something new and is a perfect activity to do with friends – especially in the summertime.


Globalls Mini Golf

Globalls Mini Golf is located in Brighton Marina and is a great day out for all ages.

Make your way around two 12-hole mini golf courses as well as a carnival games experience – playing amongst life-size neon sculptures and striking wall art.

There’s also a cocktail bar at the end if you fancy a tipple after your game.

Devils Dyke

With incredible views of the South Downs and Brighton, Devils Dyke is the perfect place for a Sunday dog walk.

There are a variety of routes to take depending on how long you want to walk, some steeper than others, so make sure you wear suitable walking shoes.

Fun fact: At nearly a mile long, the Dyke Valley is the longest, deepest and widest dry valley in the UK.
