Admire the best of

Brighton in bloom

In the heart of the city you can find beautiful flowers blooming in green spaces such as the Royal Pavilion gardens. This is the perfect spot for a little wander or to stop for a picnic and watch the world go by beside one of Brighton's most iconic landmarks. For longer walks, you will find Stanmer Park towards the edge of Brighton, where the woods start to be filled with stunning bluebells from April onwards.

Immerse yourself in

the Brighton Fringe

Throughout the Brighton Fringe season from 1st-31st May, the city is splashed with colour and creativity in every corner. The 2020 programme is as crammed full of stellar comedy, music, theatre, spoken word, dance, exhibitions, workshops (the list really does go on!) as ever and lovely pop-up bars and venues appear across the city. Last year there was even a performance or two here at The Grand, so keep your eyes peeled in 2020.

Tickets are on sale now.


Lambing open days

at Saddlescombe Farm

Just a 20-minute drive from central Brighton, you'll find Saddlescombe Farm nestled in the beautiful South Downs National Park. On March 28th & 29th and April 4th & 5th, this lovely family farm opens their gates for visitors to come and see the newborn Spring lambs alongside their other farm animals.


Explore local vineyards with

Great British Wine Tours

From mid-March, Great British Wine Tours offer wonderful days out across the Sussex countryside as they take you to some of the best local vineyards to learn how their spectacular wines are made, wander the beautiful vineyards, and sample a glass or two. This includes Bluebell Vineyard Estate and Ridgeview, two of our personal favourites which you'll also find stocked in our bar and restaurant if you don't have time for the full tour. Find out more about our bar & lounge here.


Enjoy outdoor activities

by (and in!) the sea

As the warmer weather arrives, enjoy an afternoon of sunshine in Brighton with outdoor activities by the sea. Pick up a bike from one of the Brighton Bikeshare hubs along the seafront if you fancy cycling from pier to pier, rent a paddle board and kayak from Brighton Watersports and take to the waves, or book a volleyball court at lovely Yellowave beach sports centre.

Spend a leisurely afternoon

in the North Laine

Enjoy a late breakfast or brunch in our restaurant before heading out to Brighton's famous North Laine where you'll find a colourful array or independent businesses run with personality and passion, from clothes shops to cafes. You'll be spoilt for choice for where to stop for a coffee and cake, but somewhere like wonderful Pelicano with a cute garden would be our favourite choice for Spring!
