Things to do in Brighton

Early November is the time that people start their Christmas shopping and with that, I thought it would be a perfect time to suggest a little trip to Brighton. With a multitude of fun things to do, eat and drink I thought that this place should not be ruled as just a summer city. 

 

Things to do…

British Airways i360 - Set on the seafront, the 450-meter building provides stunning views of Brighton and it’s seafront. The perfect place to take a little Christmas shopping break and to admire the view of the beautiful British Coast the i360 never fails to disappoint. 

 

The Lanes - The perfect place to go Christmas Shopping. Filled with independent shops and boutiques, the Lanes offer unique gifts for people of all ages. In a world where everything is mass produced and large companies are taking over the world, it’s important to remember to support local businesses. The Lanes is also home to the famous ‘Choccywoccydoodah’ chocolate shop which creates a variety of elaborate confections.

 

Brighton Pier - Filled with a variety of rides and attractions such as Mega Slides and The Palace of Fun, Brighton pier is a great way to spend an afternoon. Grab yourself traditional British treats such as a stick of rock and fish and chips. Brighton Pier is also hosting a Christmas Market on the 1st and 2nd of December. 

 

 

Things to eat…

 

Metrodeco - Serving a variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches, Metrodeco is a great place to stop for a bite to eat between Christmas Shopping. They also offer a variety of afternoon teas which is perfect if you’re feeling a little fancier. With a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian options, there is no excuse not to give this place a visit. Not to mention that the interior is the 1930s inspired making for a very instagrammable picture. 

 

Silo - This completely sustainable restaurant is perfect for the ethically conscious. In Silo nothing goes to waste! Any food that isn’t eaten is composted and their menus are made using sustainable ingredients. All products transported to the restaurant arrive in reusable metal containers to try and reduce environmental impact and food miles Even their furniture is upcycled instead of buying new. Silo is not just a restaurant but an experience.

 

The Salt Room - Being by the coast it seems crazy not to suggest a seafood restaurant! The Salt Room is an elegant restaurant decorated with copper accents. The menu consists of a selection of seafood ranging from Oysters to Monkfish. The Salt Room is the most expensive of the three options however it may make the perfect Christmas treat!

 

 

Places to drink…

 

The Tempest Inn - The Tempest inn fails to conform to the beachfront theme. Instead, this new pub has a secret hidden inside. The interior is decorated like a cave and the dimly lit ambiance is perfect for a drink or two. Upstairs is a large room where events take place so keep your eyes peeled

 

The Mesmerist- This secret speakeasy is perfect for those who love a little adventure. With its own entrance, you’re bound to feel like you’re part of the real thing. A small cocktail list is available along with a variety of wines and beers.
