Interesting And Unique Things To Do In Brighton
If you fancy a trip to a quirky, fun seaside location in the UK with a lot to do, then Brighton is definitely the right place and has a lot to offer. But what else is worth a visit except for the beach and pier?
Brighton’s ‘answer to the Crystal Maze’ The Bewilder Box is worth checking out. It is a real life adventure game, which has taken advantage of the current escape room craze in the UK in which you and your team race against the clock to solve puzzles as part of an immersive storyline. It is somewhere you should definitely consider especially if you are in Brighton as part of a hen party, stag weekend or birthday celebration due to it being a perfect and fun group activity.
If you enjoy arcade games and the penny machines but don’t fancy joining the massive crowds and queues at the pier then there is a perfect location to visit. If you take a walk along the seafront you will come across a place called ‘Museum of Mechanical Memories’, that is hidden along a little arch under the main seafront promenade. You don’t have to pay an entrance fee and if you pay £1 you then get 12 real old-fashioned pennies to use on the machines, to have a go on some of the rarest penny arcade games you will find, some from as far back as the 1920s.
In Brighton one of the most popular activities for locals to engage in has always been bingo. Even though over the years the country has seen a decrease in the number of bingo halls, due to in part, to the growing popularity of innovative bingo brands such as mFortune. There are still a lot to be found in Brighton and it is worth going for a game. The most popular bingo hall here is probably the Gala Bingo one. It is always very welcoming to new members and you can join online before you attend, saving some time. There are bingo sessions running throughout the whole day and it is open 7 days a week, meaning whenever you decide to visit you can go have a game of bingo. It is located on Freshfield Way and the main event is only £3 to enter.
If you are short on time during your trip to Brighton it may be worth considering a bike tour. Doing this will enable you to experience a little bit of everything the seaside location has to offer. If you join the Grand Brighton bike tour you will be taken to the top sights such as the seafront, the fishing quarter, Preston Manor, the Royal Pavilion and Brunswick Square. If you don’t want to be part of an organised tour though you can take your own bike or rent one and enjoy Brighton that way as there are many bike paths in town that make it the perfect method of transport to get around.
