Visit one of the south-coast's most vibrant and popular resorts with something to entertain the whole family in Brighton. Sightseeing in this extravagant city will certainly reveal all the things to do and places to go from the striking Royal Pavilion, Regency architecture and Victorian aquariums to the famous Brighton Pier, Sea Life Centre and pebble beach. Tours depart hourly from each of the 11 stops starting from 10:30 at Brighton Pier. Your ticket is valid for 2 days so we are also a great way to get around the city. You can use your ticket on the number 7 bus from Brighton Marina too if you want to stay late. Discounts are available with your bus ticket for entry to some of the top attractions as well as tickets incorporating Brighton and Hove Bus Companies services to places like the South Downs, Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells.

One hour tour, though bus change half way. Some nice sights, notably the many splendid Regency buildings on the front. Can hop on and off to see sights like the Royal Pavilion or famous St Nicholas church. A bit chilly even in August on open top - a coat recommended.

An hourly bus, hop on and hop off. They give you headphones so if listening to descriptions is something you do not want (I hate it) you do not have to. Unfortunately no-one explained about requesting a stop and where they were so we only got off when others wanted: this should be explained at the start.

Visited Brighton for 2 nights with hubby and three teenagers. Decided to take the sightseeing bus so we could get a good view of what was in and around Brighton.

Done these all over the world and in the UK..... this has to be the worst yet. A tedious commentary... we know its Brighton but the route is dreadful certainly going outbound and inbound on the same top road. Nice new buses but the sheer boredom of the whole event does not justify the overpriced lack lustre for what passes... More

Our trip was all thanks to a driver named Zack. His customer service skills were absolutely excellent and made sure we were enjoying our time constantly. There isn't much to see sightseeing wise in Brighton but the bus loaded us with information all the way round. For £8 concession it was worth it

This tour gave us a great insight into the city and orientated us as to where everything is. We upgraded from the £8 ticket to the £12 concession tickets which gave us unlimited travel on the excellent Brighton & Hove bus services for 48 hours.

We've done many hop-on hop-off tours and this one - by far - had the friendliest drivers! It's a one hour tour - without getting off the bus. Takes you from the pier to the marina. Lots of interesting facts along the way.
