Brighton: What to Know about a Day Trip to this Seaside Town

When planning your London vacation rental with Ivy Lettings, we’re sure that tourist hot-spots such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye will be top of your ‘must see’ list.

But even with the plethora of shops, restaurants and attractions it holds, sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of this wonderful capital. Ivy is here to suggest some of our favourite ‘out of town’ day trips….

Brighton, East Sussex


Why go: well, as the poem goes, “Oh! I do like to be by the seaside”  - escape London’s skyline for a view out to sea: stroll along Brighton’s cobbled beaches, revel in your childhood (or with your children!) on the Pier or soak up the extravagance of the Pavilion..

Getting there: from Victoria Station, an hour – hour and a half, prices start at £17.00 return (adult). Easy if you’re staying in one of our self-catering Belgravia properties!.

Eating and drinking: what better to eat when by the seaside than fish and chips? Head to Bankers (116A Western Road) and make your order ‘to go’. For a drink, embrace Brighton’s quirkiness at Brighton Rocks (6 Rock Place) – don’t let the exterior fool you!
