went here in April and the weather was great. the place contains some shops, restaurants as well as a bowling alley, cinema and some side shows i.e crazy golf, trampolines and children's rides. Not much in the way of shopping so don't go out of your way to come here, there are as many places to eat as there are... More

Went this morning by bus (no 7) which takes you right in. Very clean, with shops and restaurants. Slightly sad because when we were there very few others were walking about. That could have been because of the weather (it was a bit chilly) or time time of day/year. Also perhaps it would be more lively in the evenings with... More

I regularly come here for basic shopping needs in the day, but hadn't been here at night in a long time. I strongly recommend avoiding it! Boy racers speed along the roads and car parks, and almost purposefully knocked my mother over! There is a horrible atmosphere from the drunks binge drinking in the Wetherspoon. It's such a shame that... More

Our bnb recommended we go but wish we hadn't. We could have been anywhere and couldn't even see the sea! It's billed as shopping, leisure, eating etc but it was boarded up shops, ghost town areas and a line of usual high street restaurants that you didn't need to go to the marina to eat at. We were very disappointed... More

Decided to visit Brighton Marina as we were down on the coast for the day to enjoy the Bank Holiday sunshine, we parked in the Asda car park at the main entrance to the Marina complex as it was free for three hours and we just wanted to have a quick look around the Marina development to see how good...

Brighton Marina has all sorts for everybody. Shops, bars and restaurants and an enormous Asda should you need to grab some shopping! The best part of the marina for me though is the fact that you can walk all around it (well almost all the way round) and take a look at all the amazing boats and enjoy the view... More

The retail at this place has never taken off and now looks woeful, albeit some of the restaurants were reasonably busy. Why eat at a mass market eatery when there are lots of great independent establishments a few minutes away? The only point on visiting is to go to Asda for its cheap petrol. The multi storey car park is... More

We thought that we might get a nice view of the sea and yachts and have a little lunch. The restaurants are terribly disappointing, just chains. Other than providing free parking, this place has little in the way of interest or redeeming features. Shops, poor. Not worth the effort in coming here.

Spent the day here on Sunday as We haven't been here for a couple of years and I must say it's looking very tired and tatty round the edges. Some areas were closed off with red & white tape and we saw a lot of shops boarded up, all in all it looks like it needs a bit of money... More

Having visited Brighton a handful of times I always fancied a walk around the Marina. Ticked that box what a waste of the morning. Vacant shop spaces and the same generic eateries in any other town. Don't bother with the Marina, there are many more excellent places that Brighton has to offer.
