Have you ever considered Glamping in Brighton for a UK glamping getaway

Brighton & Hove is a well-known and much-loved seaside destination less than two hours from London, England. The summertime brings thousands of visitors, both local and international, to this popular beach town. But there’s so much to see and do here it’s really a year-round favorite for day trips as well as longer holidays.

Although best known as a seaside resort Brighton is so much more than that. It’s vibrant, colorful and alternative and is a hotbed of creativity and culture.

Days can be spent enjoying the famous beach and pier, visiting the Royal Pavilion and attractions or by wandering the streets lined with shops and restaurants. Evenings are for nightlife, cultural events, and a variety of dining options.

As you’d expect of any decent seaside resort there are plenty of accommodations available right in the center of it all. However, if you head out of the city into the Sussex countryside you’ll find some quieter options where you can enjoy the serenity of nature with a Brighton UK glamping holiday.
