Iconic landmarks and hidden treasures
Get the best out of Brighton on this guided day tour of the city, perfectly capturing Brighton’s vibrant essence as you discover its buzzing backroads, alluring alleyways, and the picturesque promenades along the sensational seafront. You’ll pedal from charming churches to the iconic Royal Pavilion, from the quirky Quadrophenia Alley to the postcard-perfect Brighton Palace Pier, journeying into Hove for a look down The Lanes and palatial Palmeira Square. With the added bonus of bike rental, this family friendly tour is your one-stop-shop for sightseeing in the city by the sea!
Your bicycle tour gets going with a glide through the verdant Victoria Gardens towards the grand exterior of St. Peter’s Church. Let your guide lead you through the Level Park, a sublime open space in the center of Brighton guaranteed to rejuvenate the senses as you bike towards St. Bartholomew’s Church. Here, compare the unusual neo-gothic facade, contrasting strikingly with the one you’ve just admired at St. Peter’s.
Next on your itinerary is North Laine, the vibrant indie hub of Brighton, famous for its boho boutiques, eclectic eateries, and free-spirited vibe. It’s just a short ride away from the Royal Pavilion, one of Brighton’s iconic landmarks and the seaside pleasure palace of King George IV. The Royal Pavilion is a resplendent symbol in Brighton, boasting majestic minarets, enormous domes, and staggering pinnacles seeming to pierce the sky above. A simply unmissable landmark, you’ll have time to take plenty of photos for Brighton’s page in your photo album.
Your bicycle tour takes you onwards to the infamous Quadrophenia Alley, a reminder of the riots between the Mods and Rockers in May 1964, when masses of people from both subcultures descended on Brighton from London, leading to the incident and arrests that inspired the 1979 movie, Quadrophenia, filmed in many areas of the city.
If you notice the air getting a salty tang as you cycle, it’s because you’re nearing the sensational seafront of Brighton Beach, home to the icon of the city - Brighton Palace Pier. A favorite holiday destination of millions of Brits and foreign tourists every year, the seafront is regarded as a ‘pleasure beach’, a traditional British seaside resort of carnival rides, arcades, striped deck chairs and ice cream parlors. This is a timeless landmark on the English coast - one that never loses its allure and charm. Your tour will pause for light refreshments on the beautiful beach, allowing you the chance to take in a quintessential British seaside view.
Gliding past the opulent exterior of the Grand Hotel, you’ll pedal along the promenade past the luscious Hove Lawns gracing the seafront. Biking past Brunswick Terrace, admire the flamboyant facades of one of the most popular streets in Brighton. It holds a similar feel to the grand Palmeira Square, through which you’ll push on towards Old Town and the famous Lanes - a labyrinthian area of quaint cafes, independent stores, and charming eateries. The Lanes - a favorite leisure space for locals and tourists alike - is the last stop on your diverse day tour before your guide leads you safely back to base.
