We do like to be by the seaside
We love Brighton. We love the lightness of being here: the quirky shopping and independent cafés, bars and restaurants in The Lanes and North Laine, the nightlife to suit whoever you are and the neon kitsch of the Palace Pier.
We adore laying back on Brighton’s pebbled beach on a warm sunny day and we especially love the sea for being water sport-willing, whatever the weather. Come on down. We know exactly how to party here.
'This is Red7 home turf, and, trust us, we know how to party here..'
We've got plenty of party pads in this city, and we love all Brighton's beach view hotels, with contemporary and stylish, smart and crisp or iconic and staple decor.
For thrill-seekers, sometimes the rides at the end of the pier are not enough. Step forward for the Brighton Zip Wire. At 300m long, it’s the longest on the south coast and has twin wires so you and your mates can slide at speed side by side.
There’s also a ‘drop zone’ offering an exhilarating 24-metre free fall experience. Grab yourself an ice cream or some great fish and chips here, too. Though perhaps afterwards, not before.
Highly recommended is a spell out on the water—we love the kayaking and paddle boarding here and if you’re into something a bit faster, then try a donut, speed boat rides, or the thrills and spills of wake-boarding.
The British Airways i360 is the slenderest tower in the world and has won awards for having a design that enables it to stay open in all weathers. The vertical cable car with its glass doughnut viewing pod glides 130 metres
skywards, giving you 360 degree views of up to 26 miles away.
Enjoy a beer or glass of English fizz as you gaze out over the sea, the South Downs and Brighton’s pastel-coloured terraces before coming back to earth and tucking into a gorgeous traditional English Afternoon Tea.

Love wine? So do we. Kick off your evening wine tasting at a boutique wine bar in The Lanes. Helpfully, there’s also a shop here so you can take some home with you. Excellent.
If spirits are more your thing, how about learning the secrets of cocktail making at a top bar in town? Or if you fancy singing for your supper, we’ll book your group a booth for a cocktail masterclass and some fantastic Karaoke later on in the night.
Then onto dinner—we’ve got the inside line on Brighton’s best eateries—and then, just take your pick of Brighton’s fantastic clubs. Whatever your taste in music, we’ll reserve you a VIP booth. You’ll be dancing till dawn.
We love to eat out in Brighton and we’ve spent 21 years honing our restaurant Rolodex here. As well as a classic afternoon tea or Fish and Chips with a glass of bubbly on the Palace Pier, there’s this great little Italian and Lebanese we know. We’ll find your party the best table to kick your evening off in whatever style you want.
For a evening of fun and delicious oriental food, get us to book you into a long-standing family-run Chinese restaurant in The Lanes. We absolutely adore it. Or head to a great South American restaurant in the centre of town: here the cocktail list is long, the welcome is warm and the food is relaxed, funky fusion of Latin American, Spanish, Portuguese and African.
