Brighton is a very busy popular seaside resort for people from all over the world because of its diverse culture and annual events. With a very cosmopolitan society, international restaurants, etc, its known as little London-by-the-Sea.
There are thousands of available rooms in Hotels, Guest Houses, Backpackers Hostels, YHA’s AirBNB’s as well as the local university complexes (summer only), to meet all budgets.
We are in the process of arranging some special Backgammon deals and will be adding these below as soon as we know what is on offer.
August is one of the main summer months so it’s always best to book up early to ensure best prices and more so availability. The usual internet booking sites can be used or phone direct. There are deals from £150 upwards for 4/5 nights available online, come for the week 🙂
