Exciting things to do in Brighton and Hove this Summer!

With restrictions easing across the country, many visitor attractions in Brighton and Hove can’t wait to get things on the road back to ‘normal’ and bring some excitement into your lives.

Whether you’re renting in Brighton and Hove, thinking about renting in Brighton and Hove, or just visiting friends and family for the first time in a long time, we have created a list of exciting things to in our wonderful city this summer!

The Beach

We’ve put this first on our list, as it’s our favourite! The beach is the number one reason for renting in Brighton and Hove in our eyes – whether you want to go for a morning run along the prom, take your tots down to build a sandcastle in the summer holidays or grab a disposable BBQ and a few pints on a Friday night with your mates, Brighton and Hove beach really is the best! 

Palace Pier

Palace Pier is the biggest attraction in the South East and there is so much to do – and with free admission you’d be silly not to give it a try when renting in Brighton and Hove. It’s home to fairground rides, bars, restaurants and deckchairs to take in the stunning views of our wonderful city.

This fantastic attraction allows you to glide up to 450ft on board the British Airways i360. Gather your family and friends and climb inside the fully enclosed glass viewing pod and admire views across Brighton and Hove and the south coast. This is a must do if you’re new to the city, especially if you’re renting in Brighton and Hove and want to see your home from the sky!

Volk’s Electric Railway

Volk’s Electric Railway is the world’s oldest operating electric railway and you can access it in our wonderful city! 

Volk’s Electric Railway is a narrow-gauge heritage railway that runs along a length of Brighton seafront. 

Today the line runs between terminal stations by the Palace Pier and Black Rock, which is just near Brighton Marina, so it can be a great way to travel along the seafront whilst breathing in the great sea air and taking in the glorious views.

There is so much to do at Brighton Marina, including shopping ‘til you drop and eating and drinking to your hearts content. There is something for all the family, from a cinema to casino, gyms to hotel bars, you will easily be able to spend the whole day at Brighton Marina. 

You can drive down the cliffs, walk along the seafront or moor your boat in Britain’s largest marina then take a stroll around the boardwalks while breathing in the fresh sea air.
