It may not have a sandy beach, but Brighton is one of England's most fashionable resorts. Hotels can be expensive, so why not think about renting a beachfront apartment or a townhouse for your family holiday? Not only will it save you money, but you will have plenty of space and freedom. Restaurants, pubs and bars abound in Brighton, but rental accommodation will have a fully equipped kitchen for those times when you want to unwind and prepare your own food.
Don't miss the Royal Pavilion, designed by John Nash as a seaside palace for George IV. The architecture is stunning, and the Pavilion has a collection of works of art and furniture as well as a wonderful tearoom. Entry to Brighton's Museum and Art Gallery is free, as it is to the Fishing Museum on the seafront. Shopping in the Lanes area is a unique experience; wander along the narrow, twisting streets and marvel at the antique shops and jewellers jostling with fashion boutiques. Tired of the city? The rolling hills of the South Downs are within easy reach of Brighton; you can arrange a guided walking tour on a Saturday or Sunday with Sussex Eco Trails.
Head for the seafront and take a ride along by the beach on the Volks Railway, the oldest electric railway in Britain. Entry to Brighton pier is free, and you will find plenty of rides, arcades and eateries there to choose from. Don't miss the Sealife Centre with its new Amazonian Adventure, and go for a ride in the glass bottom boat. On a rainy day, Brighton Toy and Model Museum has dolls, puppets, trains, boats and planes to amuse the younger members of the family. Budding scientists will enjoy a visit to Foredown Tower with its camera obscura, interactive computers and astronomy activities. If you're looking for a ghost tour, you might find one at Preston Manor, which also has collections of furniture, oraments and art on show.
