Campsites in Brighton
At Brighton Caravan and Motorhome Club site, you’ll be situated perfectly, a close distance from the centre but surrounded by greenery. It is walking distance from Brighton Marina so a dip in the waters is never out of the question. At the marina you’ll also find plenty of shops and eateries. The campsite is well kept with hardworking staff who are never working too hard to be friendly and give tips about the local area. Chalky Downs Campsite is slightly further away from the sea, but still only a short drive or bus ride. It has beautiful views and is surrounded by woodland. This back to basics campsite will allow you to enjoy the wonders of camping all over again, with the aid of a heartwarming campfire.
Things to do in Brighton
Now that you’ve arranged your campervan and campsites in Brighton, it is time to fill the days with fun things to do! Of all the things to do in Brighton, our favourite has to be Brighton Palace Pier. It was built over a century ago and has survived two world wars, the battering of storms and millions to visitors annually. Here you can relive your childhood will arcade games, fairground rides and a cheeky stop at a chippy van. Smell the salt air whilst you engage in some good old fashioned fun, as why not? To get the true Brighton vibe, head to the Lanes. These narrows streets are lined with pretty sixteenth century buildings, which are filled with independent cafes, vintage emporiums, book stores, record shops and more. Brighton is known for these types of stores and the cultural pursuits housed there, so true Brighton is waiting for you in one of those unique lattes! Brighton is renowned as the LGBTQ capital of the UK, and you can learn all about this in a walking tour of the city. It will take you over 200 years of history in 90 minutes, from Oscar Wilde’s eventful visits to a famed same-sex wedding of 1923.
Events in Brighton
There are many events in Brighton to choose from, but none are as sweet as the Brighton Chocolate Festival in October. This two day celebration of chocolate has free entry, and promises a weekend of delicious munching to any chocolatiers, chocolate makers or people with a simple passion for chocolate and cacao. Exhibitors have the opportunity to showcase their chocolate products - including vegan chocolate and products without dairy, gluten and other specific dietary requirements. It highlights sustainable, ethical products and the importance of quality. All that chocolate will surely get you thirsty, but luckily the UK’s biggest Gin Festival Tour comes to Brighton in November. There will be dozens of trade stands with samples for tasting, presentations from producers and industry experts, cocktail demos and live music entertainment throughout. Ticket price is dependent on demand, so the sooner you buy your ticket, the cheaper it will be!
