Summer Holidays in Brighton
Planning a Holiday by the Sea? We fabulous new summer by the Sea offer with 15-20% off selected rates in our seaside and city hotels between 19th July and 8th September 2013.
In Light of this fantastic offer and knowing how stressful planning can be, we have picked four of Jurys Inn’s favorite Seaside cities and created quick city guides on things to do with Kids.
Our First Guide covers fun things to do in Brighton whatever the weather because we know that English weather just cannot be trusted! Should the heavens begin to pour on your holiday, or the summer weather finally arrives and the sun decides to shine, you will have family fun activities at the ready.
So without further ado, here is Jurys Inn’s pick of Brighton’s top kid’s attractions:
Brighton Outdoor Activities
Peter Pan’s adventure Golf and playground
Stroll along the promenade and discover Peter Pan’s Adventure Golf and playground. The adventure golf offers a 18 hole championship putting course including a half pipe tunnel, slopes and drop throughs- it’s the perfect way to keep the children entertained! The Price may vary, but is around £4. Adventure Golf is open 11am- 6pm March to October, and 11am-4.30pm November to February.
The Peter Pan’s Playground is right next door with slides, water spouts and climbing apparatus for small children. Entrance is free and opening hours are year round daylight opening.
The Peter Pan’s adventure Golf and Playground is a bit of a walk from Jurys Inn taking around 35 minutes, however, if you are already on the beach, at the Sea Life Aquarium or Brighton Pier, the walk is a short 15 minutes.
Brighton Pier is a must see if you are visiting with children. There are plenty of arcades games, thrill rides, traditional rides (including dodgems), the Palace of fun and The Dome to keep both children and parents entertained. There is also a restaurant, food kiosks, and a milkshake bar to keep everyone well fed and happy.
Brighton pier opening times vary depending on the activity, are weather permitting and may be subject to slight variations.
Brighton Pier is a short 22 minute walk from Jurys Inn Brighton.
Engage the children in an exciting treasure trail around Brighton learning about its history along the way. Brighton offers two treasure trails- one around the ‘Cultural Quarter’ and the other along the ‘Seafront’ both offering two different mysteries to solve. This is a great activity for the whole family to get stuck into and it offers a little history, culture and a way to see the hotspots of Brighton while keeping the children entertained!
The treasure trails are only £6.99 per trail, not per person, so it’s cost effective and you can either download the trail and print it or order it for postage. You’re then good to go- no opening times and you can do the trail in your own time stopping for refreshments or lunch whenever you fancy.
