Home delivery? Yes Please!

We say that staying in with a good bottle of vino (or beer if that’s your preferred tipple), ordering your favourite Brighton takeaway and sticking on a box set, is also a respectable option for your New Year’s Evening. If you do wish to stay cosy indoors, then we have guides for both food and booze that you can grab to go or have delivered to your home. Fancy an Uber food delivery anyone?

You can also combine this option with a visit to see the Brighton seafront to see the fireworks at midnight if you can peel yourself off the sofa.

Book a New Year Brighton Igloo

Celebrating the New Year in a Brighton igloo is a unique and cosy way to welcome the upcoming year. These decked-out igloos provide a stylish and intimate setting for enjoying food, drinks, and festivities. Given their popularity, it’s advisable to make reservations in advance to secure your spot and ensure a memorable experience for you and your New Year’s clan. Most of the igloos are on the Brighton seafront too, so a great spot to see the fireworks at midnight over the city. This comes highly recommended as one of our favourite things to do in Brighton to see in the New Year’s eve celebrations.
