Overview

5 days / 4 nights From only £219pp

Ever since the middle of the 18th century when the royal family began visiting for medical reasons (they believed that bathing in saltwater was therapeutic), the area has thrived on tourism. Before tourists began visiting in large numbers, the town survived on its fishing industry, and although this is no longer the case, evidence of the past can still be seen throughout the area. In fact, some of the more popular tourist attractions like The Brighton Pier and the Royal Pavilion are remnants of these fishing times.

Brighton's art and cultural scenes are some of the most famous in all of the UK. With tons of shopping opportunities as well as great restaurants throughout the city, Brighton has come a long way since its fishing days of the past.

Please note that the pricing doesn't include paid visits.
