Cheap areas to stay in Brighton

There are many reasons why Brighton makes the ideal British beach break. There’s the iconic seafront, the trendy shops, the artsy vibe, and the incredibly affordable accommodation. You can find cheap hotels right along the beach, so keeping tabs on your budget doesn’t mean having to sacrifice sea views. Good, cost-effective pads can also be found in genteel areas like Regency Square, which is lined with stately, listed buildings, while anyone looking for a quiet nook should look to Hove, which offers a serene escape from the crowds of Brighton.

The New Cosmopolitan Hotel has pride of place by the beach, with views of the pier. It also offers free WiFi in public areas, meaning you can keep up with your social media updates without paying extra. Hotel Pelirocco stands out from the crowd as a “rock ‘n’ roll boutique hotel”, complete with spectacular themed rooms. One is emblazoned with Sex Pistols imagery, another is Motown-flavored, and there’s even a Star Wars guestroom bedecked with lightsabers. Larger groups should pick Ei8ht Brighton Apartments, which offers spacious flats, complete with kitchens, in a period building.

Where to find cheap food in Brighton

In keeping with Brighton’s reputation as a place for bohemians and hipsters – as well as holidaymakers looking for a laid-back break – this is a town filled with cheap places to eat. Wander the North Laine and you’ll see casual cafés serving up crammed sandwiches and lovingly baked cakes, as well as burger joints and pizzerias. Tucked away amid the Lanes are traditional Italian and Spanish restaurants serving good, hearty, budget-friendly food, while the seafront is lined with places where you can grab fish and chips to take away and scoff on the beach.

Cheap things to do in Brighton

There’s no getting away from it, Brighton Pier is a must-see. It’s big, it’s colorful, and it’s kitsch: a gaudy realm of seaside pleasures, from kiosks serving sticks of rock and hot, sugary donuts to the bleeping, brightly arcade machines and souvenir shops. Then there’s the beach itself, which stretches as far as the eye can see. Whether it’s sunny or not, you’ll want to spend quality time on the pebbles, and it’s particularly atmospheric after nightfall, when groups of friends pitch up to chat, drink, and party. A major attraction is Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, which features an eclectic array of exhibits ranging from oil paintings from major European artists as well as American Abstract Expressionists, not to mention optical equipment and magic lanterns from the early days of cinema. Afterwards, wander the North Laine’s many independent fashion boutiques and market stalls.

Cheap ways to get around Brighton

If you’re keeping an eye on your spending in Brighton, the good news is it’s very likely you won’t have to spend a penny on public transport. That’s because almost all the major landmarks and attractions are within ambling distance of each other. You can get from the North Laine to the Lanes to the seafront in a jiffy, and without ever getting lost. If you do need to get to other places, such as the marina or Hove, you can always hop on the efficient buses.
