An opulent seaside setting

The Grand is one of Brighton's most iconic buildings, its Victorian-era design and imposing size making it one of the seafront's landmarks since it was built in 1864. After undergoing extensive renovations and improvements throughout 2017, it's been returned to its former glory - if not better than ever.

A stroll along the seafront

Brighton Pier is just one of many must-see features that the resort town has to offer along its legendary beach - and is just 15 minutes on foot from the Grand. The seafront itself makes for a wonderful walk, while the world's oldest remaining aquarium, Sea Life Brighton, is a great diversion for kids.

Make the most of Brighton

The Royal Pavilion and the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery are both recommended for those hoping to indulge in a spot of culture, while the Theatre Royal, one of the oldest theatres in the country, regularly hosts musicals, plays, operas and ballets. The Brighton Dome is a similarly popular venue, with comedy and rock and pop performances often selling out.
