Experience the magic of Brighton Palace Pier, boasting a multitude of attractions, from arcade games and rides to the indoor soft play area, Palace Play. Take a stroll along its impressive 1,722ft length and enjoy traditional fish and chips or an ice cream while admiring stunning views of the English Channel. Complete your family outing with a visit to one of Brighton's beaches, where you can build sandcastles, explore rock pools, or snugly nestle your toes in the warm sands by the shore.

Check the events calendar before your visit, as Brighton often hosts family-friendly music concerts, firework displays, and virtual reality experiences on the pier for a truly unforgettable holiday. Remember to book tickets to popular attractions in advance to avoid disappointment and to benefit from potential savings. Brighton's wealth of activities and attractions, from sun-drenched beaches to engaging museums, ensures a fantastic holiday experience for families of all interests and budgets.

When to visit

The ideal time for a family holiday in Brighton is between June and October, offering comfortable weather and an abundance of outdoor activities. The warmest months are July to September, perfect for beach visits and picnics in the park, while January and February tend to be colder, but still offer a variety of indoor attractions to enjoy.

The rainiest months, including January, October, November, and December, see a decrease in tourism, providing a quieter experience for families. To ensure the best experience for your family, avoid planning your holiday during term time, as fines may be incurred for taking children out of school without permission.
