Brighton Christmas Spirit
Here’s how to create a uniquely Brighton Christmas and support your local community this festive season:
Yuletide With #BrightonUpYourChristmas
Our fabulous restaurants have been amongst the hardest hit by the 2020 pandemic. But things are looking a little brighter for the hospitality sector this season. With evening curfews extended until 11 pm and most of our retailers permitted to trade over December, we may find that although a little different from usual, they may be able to #BrightonUpYourChristmas after all.
If you can’t go to them they can come to you!

WARM-UP IN PUBS WITH FIRES
Tackling the Brighton Christmas streets can be demanding, cute and diverse as they are not a shopping centre with climate control. So, when the wind is blowing and the snow (or most likely rain) is falling keep this list of pubs with real fires handy. You’ll need to find somewhere warm and cosy to dry off. Or do all your shopping online from in front of the pub fire – most of them have wifi.
EXPLORE COUNTRY PUBS WITH WALKS
A clear, bright and cold day presents the perfect opportunity for stretching one’s legs with a walk around the Sussex countryside. There are numerous good pub trails, many of which feature trips through chocolate box villages and idyllic country pubs. Pop into one of these charming establishments to warm up with real ale, hearty grub, open fires and evergreen decked beams. Guaranteed to kindle the Christmas spirit in the Grinchiest of hearts.
