Beach babes

Brighton beach days are born for the school holidays. Hours of fun can be had splashing around and working up a mighty appetite. When your little ones tum start rumbling, you won’t be caught short of kid-friendly lunch stops. Lucky Beach Cafe serves quality local produce. Their strong sustainable policy means you’ll be doing the children and their worldly inheritance good in one easy move.

Ohso is perfectly positioned right next to the Palace Pier. They offer a fantastic range of family favourite dishes and if the kids don’t eat too much ice cream, you could head for a post-lunch ride on the Dodgems.

Shelter Hall is a much-loved Brighton location. The food hall houses six regular kitchens, one guest pop-up and offers a dedicated kids menu. The indoor/outdoor location is perfect for kids to tear around between the beach and your observation station.

Brighton Cookery School

Nurture the budding chef in them by sending your mini-Michelin star to Brighton Cookery School for one of their kids cook classes. It’ll keep them busy and you’ll be able to reap the benefits of their new skills. The words “grub’s up mum” never came a moment too soon!

Spot your yacht

Brighton Marina is host to many fun-filled family activities – there’s bowling, arcades, glow crazy golf and the big screen. When you’re done with the inside entertainment, why not take a stroll around the docks and play spot your yacht (the big one named Daisy will do nicely). Then head to The Watershed for a spot of waterside dining on local produce and plan your sailing trip around the world.
