Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside 🌞 Heading down to B-Town for the legendary Pride parade this weekend? Make sure you check out our list of fave Brighton spots and things to do when you’re having fun in the sun.
North Laines as described by our fabulous Junior Graphic Designer Freya: ‘they’re great for shopping, especially for vintage, and there’s also lots of cute cafes and street art dotted around. Really good vibe for just mooching around. Visit South Lanes as well for more high street shops and quick bites to eat – there’s something for everyone.’
Kemptown Trading Post, a bohemian market to find loads of little nick-nacks, is also one of our absolute must-gos so make sure you stop by for some artefact hunting. You never know, you could find some really cute things for your flat and tell people it’s vintage 😏
After an afternoon traipsing around South Laines, head to legendary Brighton restaurant Food for Friends for a good ‘ol vegetarian time. Featured in the Good Food Guide 2018 and The Sunday Times’ Top vegetarian and vegan restaurants, we’d recommend the Soba noodle pomegranate salad and open spinach ravioli.
The Flour Pot Baker is located at the legendary King’s Road Arches on Brighton Beach next to the i360, so saunter over after taking to the skies. Try their summer strawberry tarts for dessert 🍓
Fatto A Mano Pizza With pizza dough ‘made on site every day, proved for a minimum of 24 hours,’, there’s NO WAY you’ll be left unsatisfied with this drool-inducing eatery. We’ll take one of each, please!
Club Revenge Dance the night away at one of Brighton’s top LGBT club’s. There’s a night for EVERYONE – from Fat Lip emo nights to Lip Sync For Your Life (put us down right now!), get your honey and lemon ready for that singing voice.
The Mesmerist has jazz nights every Tuesday (they cover everything from A Tribe Called Quest to J Dilla), prohibition-themed decor and Burlesque shows you’d be a fool to miss.
If you’re more of a pub kinda person, Saint James serves 90 different rums, DJs every weekend playing mainly vinyl and occasional monthly rum master classes held for free. What more could we want from one of our fave Brighton spots?
Voted Best Venue in the South 15 times, there’s no way we could leave Komedia off our list of fave Brighton spots. With 700 performances of comedy, music, cabaret and theatre, end the evening here if you don’t fancy heading onto a club – good times guaranteed.
According to our Junior Designer Freya, head to Seven Stars pub on a Sunday afternoon and they do a great Sunday roast (with veggie options 🎉). Pencil this in after your big night out with Brit Brit at Pride on Sat.
British Airways i360 was designed by the creators of the London Eye, so take to the skies (450 feet, to be precise) in a glass viewing pod. Enjoy views across Regency Brighton, the South Downs and, on a clear day, all the way to the Isle of Wight.
