Don't be a stranger
Our offices are a 10-minute walk from Brighton train station, in the heart of the city. We are lucky enough to have many wonderful places of interest on our doorstep, so whist you are visiting us, why not check out some of our favourite local hotspots shown below!
The Royal Pavilion
The Royal Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.
You’ll easily whittle away a few hours browsing the weird and wonderful offerings of Brighton Laines. Built on narrow, cobbled streets, the Laines are famed for their independent retailers. You’ll find a huge variety of shops in the Laines, including high end boutiques, jewellers, sweet shops, cafes, homeware stores, tattoo parlours and Brighton’s best second hand shop, Snooper’s Paradise.
Sand vs stones… the ultimate seaside question. But whichever side of the fence you sit on, popping to the sea is definitely a must while you’re in Brighton. On the seafront you’ll find a host of bars and restaurants where you can enjoy the sea views. You’ll also spot the two piers; to the east, the Palace Pier and the West Pier, and of course, you’ll find plenty of places offering ‘the world’s best’ fish and chips.
The Bath Arms
The Bath Arms is the oldest licensed premises in the area, dating from 1864. That means people have been boozing here for over 150 years. There's even a secret bricked up tunnel underneath it that leads to all different places from the past. It's possibly full of ghosts.
Trading Post Coffee Roasters
With a coffee bean selection to impress even the most avid of coffee connoisseurs, Trading Post is the ideal spot for a quick coffee or a long lunch. There are two Trading Posts within a 10-minute walk of the office - the original Ship Street coffee shop which offers a range of sofas and tables, and the newer Kensington Gardens shop, which is spread over three floors including a roof terrace - just beware of seagulls if you’re planning on eating up there!
The Month of May
May is the month of the Brighton Festival and the Fringe Festival. Throughout the month the city is full to the brim with performances of music, theatre, circus, comedy, culinary experiences, spoken word, dance, debate and visual arts in venues that open up all over the city, from art galleries and pubs to churches and festival tents - every possible space in the city is used. It’s a firm favourite of ours because you’ll always be sure to find a feast for the eyes, the ears, the taste buds or the soul.
Dukes at Komedia
The sister cinema of Brighton’s Iconic Duke of York’s which opened in 1910, Dukes at Komedia is a relative newcomer to the Brighton cinema scene, but it’s definitely been a big hit. The comfy chairs, leg room, range of cinematic offerings and broad choice of beer, wine and snacks have certainly played a part in that. Dukes at Komedia is the perfect rainy-day spot for families, friends and solo viewers alike.
Brighton's very own sustainable cocktail bar, Gung Ho uses seasonal British produce, freshly squeezed juices, shrubs and syrups made from scratch as well as hand-chipped blocks of ice to create cocktails of distinction!
