Heading to Brighton for a cheeky weekend getaway? Well, we have you sorted. Here are our top 10 picks of things to do, see and eat in our favourite English seaside town.
1. Enjoy Breakfast at Lost in the Lanes
If you are looking for a place that does delicious breakfast than you need to visit Lost in the Lanes. They serve up some of the best brekkie options we have had during our time here in the UK. We recommend grabbing their veggie breakfast and adding salmon – so, so good!
Location: 10 Nile Street, Brighton
2. Spend the night at The Artist Residence
Located in the centre of Brighton, the Artist Residence is our favourite hotel to stay at in town. This unique hotel has 25 individually decorated rooms all with quirky, original artwork. The hotel also features a restaurant, tapas bar, cocktail bar, ping pong room and serves award winning breakfast.
It is also in the perfect location, being a 2 minute walk from Brighton beach and 10 minutes to the Lanes.
Location: 34 Regency Square, Brighton
3. Watch a Comedy Show at Komedia
Komedia is the place to go in Brighton for comedy nights. Here you can see household names to up and coming artists. We recommend coming here for dinner, and checking out a comedy show while your there.
Location: 44-47 Gardner St, Brighton
4. Play Arcade Games at Brighton Pier
One of our favourite things to do in Brighton is to head to Brighton Pier. Get yourself a pint and a bucket of coins, take a wander into the arcade and feel like a kid again as you try to win as many tickets as you can.
5. Have a Photoshoot at Photomatic
Photomatic is where you can have some fun in a studio quality photo booth, with props, masks and signage to play around with. They have two retro style booths, one black & white and one colour. We think this is a unique little souvenir to take home and remind you of your time in Brighton.

The Flour Pot is our favourite spot in Brighton to grab a coffee & a baked treat. Here they have a chilled vibe, friendly staff and simple really, really good coffee!

We recommend coming here on a chilly day and warming up with one of their extremely chocolatey hot chocolate!
