GO Places in Brighton

Places to Go in Brighton From royal palaces and religious splendour to mesmerising statues and peaceful parks, Brighton has plenty of places well worth visiting.

For a start there is the Royal Pavilion [map], the city’s most famous attraction and one of the UK’s most beautiful buildings.

Not too far from there is the renowned Clock Tower [map] on Queens Road, which was built in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.

Heading out of Brighton to the scenic town of Arundel you’ll come across Arundel Castle [map], a magnificent stately home built by the Earl of Arundel at the end of the 11th century.

For religious architecture head to the wonderful Brighton and Hove Jewish Congregation [map], which was designed by local architect Thomas Lainson and built in 1874. There’s also St Peter’s Church [map], one of the finest early Gothic Revival churches in the UK, and St Helen’s, the oldest building still in use in Brighton and Hove that dates back to the 11th century.

Brighton is as famous for its piers as it is for its Royal Pavilion, so it’s well worth a trip to the seafront to enjoy the bars, cafés and funfair on Brighton Pier [map] and a glimpse of the old West Pier [map] before it collapses completely!

There are a couple monuments that you should not leave the city without seeing, The Big Green Bagel, aka the ‘Seasick Doughnut’, which is right on the beach, and the Peace Statue, located on the boundary of Brighton and Hove.

For a somewhat more scenic experience head to Devil’s Dyke [map], which offers outstanding views of the South Downs and is still a favourite destination for families.

Finally why not delve into the world of Lavender soap and Raspberry lip balm at The Body Shop International Limited headquarters [map], where you can enjoy a guided tour of the factory and learn a few new facts.
