Why is Brighton so Popular for a Romantic Couples Getaway?

Brighton’s natural beauty, proximity to London, and many notable tourist attractions have drawn couples from across England for centuries.

Brighton (Palace) Pier is England‘s most popular tourist attraction outside London. The i360 Observation Tower, despite looking a little phallic (or perhaps because of it), is actually a rather romantic place for a snog, especially at night. The Brighton Wheel offers private capsules with a glass of champagne perfect for a romantic evening date.

Royal Pavilion (Georges old Palace) is a popular place for couples to visit. As is Devils Dyke. It’s not a homophobic slur (Brighton is actually England’s most LGBTQ-friendly spot). Instead, it’s a 100m deep V-shaped dry valley popular for walking. Brighton also has a Naturist Beach; everyone should try it at least once. 

The Lanes is Brighton’s most exciting shopping neighborhood with all manner of independent shops, art galleries, and some lovely pubs. It’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon and a must-visit for any visitor. Couples really should check out ‘She Said Erotic Boutique‘ with its fabulous range of lingerie and adult toys.

Brighton also has hundreds of restaurants, pubs, and clubs, from the finest fine dining to the humble late night kebab, from charming traditional pubs to some of England’s best nightclubs (sorry Manchester).

And, of course, the abundance of top-notch romantic hotels in Brighton also makes it a strong contender for the title of England’s dirty weekend capital.
