Visit vibrant sights and take part in fun activities. From quirky independent shops and cafés to popular art galleries and refreshing marina walks, there is plenty to do. And if the beach isn't enough already, why not explore one of the many scenic nature spots or wineries in the surrounding East Sussex countryside?

By day

A visit to the seafront and a ride on a classic carousel on the pier is a must, as well as lunch and Champagne on the Malmaison terrace bar, while checking out the marina's impressive line up of yachts. Richly eccentric, the Royal Pavilion blends Mughal and Islamic architectural traditions with stunning results. It can be appreciated from the outside, but also permits visitors to explore inside and learn more about the history. If you're ok with heights, enjoy a 20-minute pod ride in the skies on the British Airways i360. On a sunny day the views over the city’s rooftops and back gardens towards the Downs and Seven Sisters cliffs are Instagram gold.


By night
