Enjoy this fully guided day trip to free-spirited Brighton, a seaside town just an hours drive from London. The town has a reputation for laidback alternative thinking and is constantly ranked highly on the UK's favourite places to live.
The tour includes:
Return travel by executive coach from London
Full day professional tour guide
Walking tour of Brighton with professional guide
Entry to the Royal Pavilion
Upon arrival your guide will take you on a tour of Brighton, exploring its simple beginnings as Brighthelmstone, a small fishing community, the royals and railways which brought Brighton to the forefront of 18th century popular culture, and to the piers that now stand as a testament to the British love affair with the sea.
No tour of Brighton would be complete without a visit to The Royal Pavilion, the Prince Regent's essay in opulence that fused Indian and Chinese motifs in a grand palace designed by his favourite architect John Nash. This extremely expensive royal retreat has to be seen to be believed, there is nothing in the whole country like it. Naturally, we take a peek inside (admission included) and tour a home that almost bankrupted a nation.
After the tour there will be plenty of time to browse around the 'Lanes' with its wonderful jewellery and craft shops, grab some seafood and head out to the beach, visit the bohemian North Laine area or take a ride on the Volk's Electric Railway to the marina to check out the yachts of the rich and famous of today. The tour gives you plenty of free time in Brighton to enjoy this seaside resort, often referred to as 'London by the sea'.
This tour returens to London at aproximately 6pm
