Brighton with boys 9 and 13: ideas 4 eating and activities?

Hi,

We'll be staying in Brighton from Sun 9th to Thu 13th Aug and have found a circus workshop on the pier, Lagoon Watersports, Sea Life and Board 360 on the net - any other ideas for energetic, musically inclined boys, or for nice but not too dear food that does pizzas etc but also a wider choice for adults? We're staying at the Premier Inn,

Many thanks,

Caroline

Strada does pizzas and good mains for adults. It's in New Road. If the weather is good, sit outside.

Giraffe is another good bet for kids, as is Bill's. Both are in North Road in the North Laines.

i think you've got it mostly covered. Do they skateboard/bmx? there's a skate park at Hove beach next door to the Lagoon (and Mills-McCartney's vegan foody place).

How about taking a boat hire out of Brighton Marina? see Brighton from the sea!

Take a stroll along to Yellowave half a mile east of the Pier. Beach sports venue (on sand) and a climbing wall.

Hire bicycles and use the seafront cycle route.

(down by the old west pier, Sunrise cycles)

Get out to Rottingdean for the cliff top pitch and putting.

As for eats: agree with above, but would add GBK in Gardner St for good burgers (no Pizzas tho). But in reality you're spoilt for choice when it come to eats. So just wander and see what takes your fancy. The kids should like Sydney St/Kensington Gdns/Gardener St areas (North Laine). Plenty of interesting shops to peruse for retro/vintage clothing, music etc.

Independent music store "Resident Music" in Kensington Gdns, often has in-store gigs and live PA's. so worth checkin out maybe.
