10 Family Days Out In Brighton

As the days become shorter and darker my mind can’t help but jump to next summer and making a mental bucket list of places to visit and things to see for my family and I. As much as I enjoy cosy evenings in with hot chocolate and lots of blankets I do live for the summer and getting out and about as much as possible. Making plans is what helps me through these dark and cold days.

Next year I have a few UK destinations already on my ‘to visit’ list one of them being Brighton! It’s not too far from us and although I have family living down there I haven’t been in years so I am planning a nice long weekend to see some sights and have some fun exploring with the girls. My favourite way to explore a new city or town is by renting a little holiday cottage, it’s like a home from home and just works for us. The girls don’t get crazy like the tend to in the confines of a hotel room and it gives us the freedom to go where we like and take our time.

Accommodation sorted next is what we are going to do; here are the top 10 family activities I have found. It’s going to be my mission to see and do as many as we can during our break.

family days out in Brighton

  1. British Airways i360 – how cool does this look! It’s a fab way to see some amazing views of the city and there is a bar. I mean what more could you want.
  2. Brighton Open Air Theatre – summer 2018 shows are yet to be released but I am sure there will be something great we can go an watch during our stay.
  3. Brighton Zip – As you can guess this is a mahooozive zip line, there are height restrictions on this one so not for the younger kids but I think Maisy will be tall enough by next summer it would be great fun to do together!
  4. Brighton & Hove seafront – You can’t visit Brighton and not grab fish and chips on the beach.
  5. Sea Life Brighton – We love a good sealife centre and seem to visit every one we come across it’s always a great day out for children.
  6. Globalls – The craziest of crazy golfs! Glow in the dark makes everything so much more fun.
  7. Brighton Toy and Model Museum – A trip down memory lane for adults as we see the toys we used to love through our childhoods and a chance for our little ones to see there is more to life than iPads and Netflix!
  8. Stanmer House – Looks absolutely gorgeous for a nice woodland walk and a picnic.
  9. Hove Lagoon – Lagoons, a paddling pool and a chance for some water sports, perfect for a summer’s day.
  10. Blakers park – A free family day out with something for everyone; little ones can play in the park while you sit back and enjoy a picnic in the sun(hopefully) there are also tennis courts!

So those are top of my list for things to do with the family in Brighton; I would love to hear anymore suggestions!

    Hope you enjoy your visit to Brighton next year. 🙂 I live a few miles away and go there regularly but I haven’t been on the i360. I often see it going up and down and it looks like fun!

    There are good shops in Churchill Square and also the Lanes if you want to check them out. And there’s a Harry Ramsden’s (the fish and chip shop) just across from the pier and the Sealife Centre, although parking tends to be bad round there if you go by car. Hope that helps! 🙂
