GO Romantic in Brighton

Romantic Evenings in Brighton Brighton is a great place for loved-up couples to spend a weekend away, as is it crammed full of cosy restaurants, top class hotels and great entertainment.

So whether you’re looking for that somewhere special to propose, planning your first holiday together or just want to spend some quality time with the one you love, you can’t go far wrong in the city-on-the-sea.

First of all you’ll need to organise your accommodation and where better than the finest hotel in Brighton, the five star De Vere Grand Hotel [map]. This landmark hotel on the seafront stays true to its name by offering luxury with all the trimmings, including a swimming pool, hairdresser, fitness club and restaurant.

Alternatively you could opt for the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel [map], which is housed in one of Brighton most beautiful buildings and has been providing plush accommodation for years. This is perhaps the most comprehensive hotel in the city, even outdoing The Grand in terms of leisure facilities, what with its fitness club, swimming pool, solarium, sauna, whirlpool and several top class restaurants.

Once you’ve checked into your hotel you’ll need to decide how to spend your days, but fear not because Brighton has plenty to keep lovebirds busy. For a start there are the city’s many art galleries, which provide a great backdrop of a romantic day’s sightseeing. Brighton’s main art venue is the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery [map], which has a number of dynamic and innovative new galleries, including fashion and style, 20th century art and design, and world art.

The city also has its own Arts Quarter, a series of small studios and shops under the King’s Road Arches where local painters and sculptors create and sell their products. This is the perfect place to pick up a unique Brighton gift to remember your trip by.

If you’re looking for a place to unwind and gaze into each other’s eyes then head to Preston Park [map] on London Road, which has mesmerising gardens, cycle track and a café.

Or, for the more daring couple, why not pay a visit to Brighton’s Naturist Beach [map], which is tucked away at the far end of beach just before the Brighton Marina. This is the town's only naturist spot and is shielded from onlookers by a mound of pebbles, making the 100-metre section of beach a peaceful haven for those who aren’t too shy to bare all.

Once the night starts drawing in you’ll want to get glammed up to the nines and head out on a romantic evening to remember...

Why not start with a meal at one of Brighton’s top restaurants, such as the King’s Restaurant [map] at The De Vere Grand Hotel, which serves scrumptious food in the luxurious surroundings of marble pillars and chandeliers. Get there early to sip cocktails and pre-dinner drinks in the lounge and bar whilst listening to soothing music from the resident pianist.

For a splendid city centre eatery check out Sevendials [map], which has won two AA rosettes for its exceptional dining experience. Here you will also find a summer terrace with hardwood decking that is open during the warmer seasons.

To mix with some of the city’s best dressed people head to the Havana [map] on Duke Street, a stunningly stylish restaurant with cream décor and dark wood. There is a cocktail bar at the front while the restaurant section offers a wonderful selection of contemporary international cuisine.

After dinner you can either head to one of Brighton’s many theatres for a night of drama, dance, music or comedy.

The cream of the crop where theatres are concerned is undoubtedly the Theatre Royal [map] on New Road, an old style arena that plays host to big touring productions and musicals.

However the Pavilion Theatre, which is part of the Brighton Dome Complex [map], is also extremely popular with locals and visitors alike. This 240-seat theatre is home to many Brighton Festival events each year and is also used for music, dance and drama.

For live music why not head to the city’s premier arena, the Brighton Centre [map] on Kings Road, which has a 5,000 capacity auditorium. Stars who have performed here in the past include Van Morrison, Shirley Bassey and Michael Crawford, as well as a number of up-and-coming bands.

If you would prefer to hold hands on back row of a picture house then you’re in luck because Brighton has a couple of small cinemas for that intimate night out.

Along with the Duke of York’s Cinema [map], Britain’s oldest picture house, there is the fiercely modern Ali-Cats [map] on Brills Lane, which is actually a bar that transforms into a cinema in the evening showing an array of cult favourites.
