My mother absolutely loves Brighton, not just to go the beach but also shopping & dining. As we live in central london we do make an occasion of going to Brighton at least once a year.

The beach itself seemed ok. The main problem was litter everywhere on the promenade . Also thought railings needed a fresh coat of paint !!

Don't come here if you want a sandy beach but it is possible to make your self comfortable on the pebbles with a bit of patience - or hire a bed in the season. There's much more to do here though with bars, clubs, shops and galleries to explore with top quality art and craft on offer.

The beach front is so nice. It's lively and also peaceful enough to relax. Plenty to see and do. Several places to eat. Accessible in a wheelchair although the access slopes are very steep!

Nudist, hippy, apathetic this beach although pebbled caters for all, in a nutshell the more liberal crowd go to the left of the pier whilst the more posh head toward Hove, actually. The day time London crowd in the hot weather normally sit to the right of the pier as far up as, "The Honey Club". Thinks to check out:... More
