How far is it from Gatwick airport to Brighton? Is there any clubs open after midnight there? I have a 9-1/2 hour layover at Gatwick and somone told me to check out Brighton for Friday night fun. Any ideas?

It takes half an hour by (frequent, direct) train. Sorry, can't tell you about clubs, tho'.

Brighton is okay but London is less than an hour by train London is hopping.

yep, brighton is no more than 45 minutes away from gatwick by train, or only about $60 in a taxi if you pre-order a brighton-based firm (try +44 1273 585555). you'll always find clubs open after midnight up to about 4.00am for the younger places. you'll find it a lot cheaper and a lot more relaxed than london!

Brighton - a little history

by budapest8



Born as a fishing village in the 15th century, Brighton soon established its identity. The early 18th century saw severe flooding which decimated its trade. It wasn't until a few decades later that it started picking up again, when the town's proximity to the capital lured thousands of affluent Londoners to the coast in search of Brighton's clean Brightoning waters and fresh sea air. The town soon became the most lively place outside the capital, and duly caught the attention of the Prince Regent who enjoyed wild parties here away from his disapproving father, King George III. The birth of the railways made Brighton accessible to ordinary folk and day trips to the seaside took off. Over the next century, Brighton's place as a Mecca for British seaside holidaymakers and fun lovers was secured.

Wikipedia is wrong (again) on this one.

by sourbugger

Yep, i've never ticked 'beach activities' before, but now I have.

Jokari is orginally a french game, but it was a Brighton company (well Hove anyway) that commercialised this game. Essentially it consisted of two wooden paddles and a ball on a long piece of elastic. 'Squash without the court', as it said on the boxes. There is a fascinating website to this craze on the 1950's listed below. It still smacks of the era of seaside fun with saucy postcards, paddling in the sea, Punch and Judy shows, candyfloss and flowery skirts.

Wikipedia says it was invented in Texas, but I guess they bought the licence. You may still be able to get a vintage set on e-bay, but I guess it will set you back a bit. I'm surprised it hasn't been brought back for the modern age - but I can't see anything available.

The South Downs

by Elodie_Caroline


The South Downs go on for miles and miles, they are a really beautiful sight to see. You used to be able to see so much more of these when I was younger. Any coach trips would always meander through all of the little back roads and country lanes. But I guess that they are trying to preserve the beauty as much as they can now for future generations? let's hope they appreciate it too.

This is the view looking out of the front window from out of the car.

Cheerful tourist tat !

by amapola66 about Various

I know we are all slightly snobby about cheap tourist tat ; ) but sometimes it is kind of fun to pick up this kind of thing, especially if you are coming from a completely different culture.

On the seafront in Brighton, there are numerous tourist shops of this description selling everything from Brighton rock (awful, sticky sweet stuff that rots your teeth) to union flag plates, cufflinks, fridge magnets, t-towels, socks and such the like. I bought a Union flag (which used to be called the Union'Jack') plate for my Venezuelan aunt in one of thes store recently and she loved it! These shops are also good if you have small children who love bright shiney things.

My friend 'Aunty Wife' and I, used to have a competition to see who could find the most ugly and tacky souvenir. I think she won, with a disgusting beige egg cup with three flying ducks painted on, bought from our fair city some years ago before we lived here . Then again, I did return from Paris once with an electric pink sponge in the shape of the Eiffel Tower and featuring a thermometer in its center ; )

Anyway, as I say, stroll along the seafront if you fancy having some fun looking for these 'objects of desire', to the left of the Palace Pier (as you are facing the sea) is the best spot in my experience.
