If you’re looking for great activities, Brighton is jam packed with things to do. From traditional family fun to beach and water sports, Brighton activities are endless. From Beach Fun To Extreme Sports.

Brighton beachfront offers a buzzing playground of swimming, sailing, basketball and volleyball, whilst away from the water you can enjoy a day at Brighton Races or test your nerve with some power boat riding.

And with so much stunning Sussex countryside literally on the doorstep of the city there are loads of opportunities for walking and cycling activities on the South Downs and areas beyond Brighton too.

After all that action you may find yourself in need of a relaxing treatment or sports massage and Brighton has a wide range of spas to help you unwind.
