Our tips for a good day out in Brighton This Autumn

As the temperatures start to drop and the leaves turn a myriad shade of ochre and bronze, you would not be wrong to think you’ve missed the boat for a day out at a seaside resort. But Brighton has no shortage of exciting alternative activities for groups of all varieties, and the two million visitors to the city each year are testament to this.

We’ve put together a guide to review the best of the bunch so you can plan your day trip to Brighton accordingly.

Grab a Fish and Chip Supper

A portion of salty, vinegary hand prepared cod and chips is top of the list for many who are travelling to the coast, and for good reason. Equally suited to a hot summer evenings as it is to a crisp autumn afternoon, over 167 million portions are sold in the UK each year!

Brighton has some of the freshest, most renowned fish restaurants in the country and there’s plenty of competition, so clawing a way to the top of the pile takes some doing. Bardsley’s of Baker Street is a family run institution which is hidden away from the hubbub of the city centre. Most would agree that they serve up some of the best battered haddock in town, and they also offer expertly grilled and poached options for those who are a little more health conscious.

The cleverly named No Catch are vegan newcomers on the scene. With sustainability at the absolute forefront for owners Ed and Kevyn, you can have an authentic fish ‘n’ chips experience with significantly less of the environmental impact.

Try Your Luck at a Casino

Brighton has an impressive selection of brick-and-mortar casinos, most of which are on the waterfront or very close by. Brighton’s casinos offer something for everyone, including poker rooms, multiple casino games and tables, cocktail bars and even restaurants.

According to online reviews, some of the biggest casino wins can come from slot games. If you are looking to win big and have a great night out, we would suggest going to Genting Casino, Pier Nine Casino, or Rendezvous Casino. They are all located on the marina, and they offer slots games as well as many others.

You can also book package experiences in the Rendezvous Casino, such as Poker training, Cocktail training and many more. So, whatever your tastes, you are sure to have a great night out in Brighton when you go to the casino.

Cycle Along the Undercliff Walk

If you are looking for something more active and physically testing, you should check out the 5km Undercliff Walk. This route makes up part of the city’s coastal defence and it is a great choice for active holidaymakers. Cyclists and walkers share the route that spans from Brighton Marina to the last rock groyne, marking the Brighton & Hove boundary at Saltdean.

Iconic chalky cliffs line this route, which makes it a very picturesque and unique experience in the right conditions. Of course, walkers should remember to exercise caution and remember that during stormy weather and extreme conditions the path may be closed.

Get Inspired at Brighton Photo Fringe Festival 2022

The biennial Brighton Photo Fringe is a volunteer-led festival that runs for the duration of October, providing workshops, shows and exhibitions across many of the city’s galleries and art spaces. This year has the theme of ‘Real Utopias’ and has invited some of the area’s most established artists and promising young talent to contribute.

Revel in Regency Opulence at the Royal Pavilion

Commissioned by George IV in 1815 to be his seaside pleasure palace, the striking Indian inspired architecture is Brighton’s most recognisable landmark along with the pier. The grandiose property was also enjoyed by George IV’s successor, William IV, but was sold to the city of Brighton in 1850 by Queen Victoria.

Visitors can peruse the many minarets, banqueting halls and royal bedrooms, designed by architect John Nash. These have been faithfully restored to the King’s original vision. Between the months of October and March, the Pavilion is open from 10am to 5.15pm with last admission being at 4.30pm.

Sniff Out Unique Items at Snoopers Paradise

Over 90 individual traders make up this eccentric shopping market in Kensington Gardens, a short walk from the train station. Described as the beating heart of the North Laine, the flea market runs daily from 10am to 6pm (with reduced hours on Sundays). You will find everything from retro curiosities to jaw dropping taxidermy as well as some real bargain items, if you can talk the talk with the vendors!

It’s easy to lose several hours rummaging through the bric-à-brac of the two-floor emporium – plus a few more in the vintage clothes heaven, Snoopers Attic. Snoopers Paradise has been operating for thirty years and is a must include on your Brighton schedule.

Just because the weather is changing, it does not mean you will be short of things to do in Brighton. The city comes alive in the cooler months, offering quirky and compelling amusements for visitors and locals alike.
