My most exciting things to do in Brighton

Your perfect Local will share your interests, personality and passion for meeting like-minded travelers, as well as understanding your lifestyle, language and culture. Whatever your interests are, we can connect you with a like-minded Local who can’t wait to show you the places you’ll love to visit, eat at venues where the food is to your taste and share a side of their city that they know will captivate you! But some of our Locals' favourite things to do in Brighton are strolling along the pebbled beach discovering hidden coves, searching for the best fish and chips in Brighton, exploring vintage markets, enjoying lazy brunches at unique cafes, shopping at quirky boutiques selling local arts and crafts, watching the sun set behind the pier and experiencing Brighton’s vibrant nightlife and LGBTQ scene.

Hi. I have been a resident of Brighton for about five years and am a firm devotee of much that the city offers in terms of culture, outlook and innovation. I have a keen interest in local history and a large and wide-ranging interest in many of the arts including fine art, literature, cinema and music and can provide an excellent introduction to what makes Brighton so special and unique in these respects. I consider myself confident and sociable and also love the vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan nightlife of the city, though I also enjoy running and spending time in the Sussex countryside. Above all, I enjoy discussion and getting to know new people and sharing opinions and experiences.

I love getting out, and about in Brighton & Hove as there’s always something going on. I’m a gay married woman, and I’ve lived in Brighton, and it’s surrounding areas for the last 28 years. I enjoy delicious foods, and love visiting new restaurants in the city. I have a dog so have lots of knowledge of where dogs are allowed in the city. I worked at The Theatre Royal for a couple of years, so I have lots of knowledge regarding The Theatre Royal, and of the other theatres in the city. I love going to Brighton’s art house cinema’s, The Duke of York's, and the Komedia, and I really enjoy market stalls, and shopping. Brighton has many small boutique shops in the North, and South Lanes, so when looking for something original, like a birthday, or Christmas present this is the place to come. Brighton & Hove is a very special city as it is 2 towns rolled into 1 big city. The city is a huge eclectic range of people, and with such diversity the city has a really lovely atmosphere. It's very rare to meet true locals who were born, and bred in the city, but there are many visitors to the city who end up liking the city so much that they end up staying, and becoming one of the city's adopted locals. Like me! ☺️

Hello! My name is Alexandros (Alex), Greek in origin and residing in Brighton since 2014, when I came for my masters in Urban Design. I am genuinely a city person. I was born in a city, raised in a city, loved and been loved in a city. Without neglecting the rural, cities shape our personalities and interests while we shape cities as well. I am an architect and the city is my subject. I love music and arts and I always try to experience first-hand all those aspects that make our cities beautiful and/or unique, interesting and friendly. I am a psychogeographic enthusiast, meaning I pay extra attention to local history, obscure legends and 'uncharted' territories while I always try to experience my locale from the flipside of modernization.
