Ah, Brighton. Easily one of the most popular spots for a weekend break in the UK among Londoners (it’s just an hours’ train ride from London Victoria), this seaside city is bursting with colour and spirit. So it’s no surprise Airbnbs in Brighton are booking up at an alarming rate right now.
Staycations are the holiday of the moment, after all, and as we’re all encouraged to vacation on home turf for yet another year, the city of Brighton and Hove is only set to grow in popularity.
Small enough to cover on foot but big enough to be packed full of cool things to do, the fact that Brighton boasts a fish ‘n’ chip shop-adorned pebbled beach and a Grade II-listed pleasure pier is really just the tip of the iceberg. Brighton’s restaurant scene is buzzing (from seafood on the seafront to fine dining in some of the city’s chicest boutique restaurants and bustling bistros in the Lanes, there’s something for absolutely everyone) while the nightlife is spirited and the abundance of independent shops a force to be reckoned with. And that’s before we even touch on the culture festivals (it has its own Fringe each May where you can enjoy book signings, street dancers and pop-up comedy).
As if you didn’t need any more persuading, the Airbnb offering in Brighton is exceptional. And taking over an entire property is the best way to feel totally at home while offering space and privacy.
To help with your planning, we’ve curated an edit of the top Airbnbs in Brighton that have availability this summer. For now. From this amazing flat with a balcony, sea-views, 11-foot high ceilings and chesterfield sofa to kick back and relax, to this luxury log cabin with hot tub just outside of the city, there’s an Airbnb for everyone.
