Top 10 things to do in Brighton & Hove


It’s OFFICIAL… well to us anyway! Brighton & Hove is the best place to live in the UK.

You may be thinking stick to your builders’ metalwork but we just love it so wanted to share the best things to do in our fun and lively city. Here goes:

1. Visit the beach

We could only start in one place really. The beach.

Everyone loves the beach and Brighton’s has got it all well except sand. However, don’t let that put you off, it’s still great place to enjoy some fish and chips or top up your tan. Additionally, there are two piers: The Palace Pier which has all the fun of the fairground whereas the West Pier is iconic photo op for every day-tripper!

2. Explore the Laines or shop til you drop

If shopping is more your scene, then Brighton will not disappoint.

No matter what you’re looking for you will find it. You can head to Churchill Shopping Centre and Western Road to get your high street shopping fix. Alternatively, visit the Laines where you can easily while away a whole day perusing through independent shops where you can find everything from antiques to vegetarian shoes.

3. Watch live sport

There isn’t much better than watching sport live and there are plenty of options in Brighton and Hove.

For football, Brighton & Hove Albion play in the EFL Championship at the AMEX Stadium in Falmer.

In the summer, head to the County Ground in Hove and watch Sussex Cricket team in action.

5. Have your Stag or Hen do

Every weekend the city is filled with stag and hen dos

Simply put, if you want a weekend destination for a stag or hen do then Brighton is the place. Awash with accommodation, drinking establishments and plenty of activities plus the beach there isn’t anywhere better.

6. EAT and DRINK

Another reason for the large number of visitors to Brighton & Hove is the sheer number of fantastic places to eat and drink.

Everywhere you turn you’ll find a great place to eat or drink whether that’s in the Laines, Hove, Kemp Town or Seven Dials. Plus, there is fantastic variety and of course we’re home to the best burger in Britain, Burger Brothers.

TECO Tips: Chilli Pickle (Indian), VIP (Italian), Shakespeare’s Head (Roast), Burger Brothers (Burger/Takeaway), Full English (Café Motu) and so many more!

7. Take in a gig

On top of all the festivals there is plenty of live music and comedy throughout the year.

Brighton is home to venues such as The Brighton Centre, The Dome and Concorde 2 plus tons of smaller venues as well as pubs with plenty of big names and lesser known talents heading down to play by the coast. For comedy, all the above apply plus Komedia which plays hosts to weekly comedy shows.

9. Marina

Boats, Bars and Restaurants

Away from the main areas of Brighton, the marina offers an alternative option for eating and drinking as well as entertainment including a cinema and bowling.

10. BAi360 and Builders’ Metalwork

Brighton’s newest attraction is also its biggest. The British Airways i360 stands over Brighton at an impressive 450ft and is the world’s tallest moving observation tower. Now we couldn’t resist just a little plug but our galvanised bolts have been used on the structure and we’re very proud of that fact!
