Other Attractions in Brighton

There are plenty of additional places to see on your visit to Brighton & Hove.

It's worth exploring one or two of Brighton & Hove's museums and art galleries.

And a visit to The Lanes is a "must" - even if you're not keen on shopping!

 

Booth Museum Of National History

Booth Museum of Natural HistoryAdmission to the museum is free and contains a large collection of British creatures (including birds, whales, skeletons and more) set amidst a backdrop of what would have been their natural surroundings.

Over half a million specimens and natural history literature and data extending back over three centuries are here, including hundreds of British birds displayed in recreated natural settings. Plus butterflies, skeletons, a whale and dinosaur bones.  The Discovery Laboratory offers interactive displays exploring the Booth's collections. 

In some ways it’s rather eerie, but certainly worth a visit.

Hove Museum & Art Gallery

Hove Museum & Art GalleryThis building's claim to fame is that the first ever cinematic movie to be played in Britain was done so in Hove. And you can catch it here among a number of additional interesting displays.

Following major redevelopment, Hove Museum & Art Gallery has been transformed into a centre of learning and enjoyment for people of all ages. The Museum's permanent collections have been redisplayed in exciting new galleries.

The museum is in New Church Road, Hove.

The Lanes

The Lanes - Market StreetEnjoy a bit of shopping? There’s a wonderful mix of quaint little shops as well as fashionable new boutiques in “the lanes”, a narrow maze of tiny streets that would delight the heart of any self-respecting shopper. Also found in this region are some charming little restaurants and cafes.

Location of The LanesThe Lanes is the oldest area of Brighton. After the village was burnt to the ground by French invaders in the 16th century, it was rebuilt along the same streets. The town was bordered by three roads - West Street, East Street and North Street covering an area approximately one square mile.

Although some of the buildings have been modernised or replaced, the narrow streets give us a good idea of what medieval Brighton was like.

The Brighton Festival

Officially the second largest arts festival in Britain, the Brighton Festival is a huge event, with a huge compilation of music, dance and theatre from artisans all over the world.

It's usually held over a few weeks in May.

Keep in touch with details of the next festival on their website.
