See & Do
There’s stacks to do in Brighton. Admire the exuberant Victoriana of Brighton Pavilion, eat fish and chips on the pebbly beach, trawl for antiques in The Lanes or spend an hour with the sea breeze in your hair on Brighton Pier, where you'll find everything from hot dogs to dodgem rides and a helter-skelter. You can admire the marine life at the Sea Life Centre, or head to Brighton Race Course, which holds 23 meetings a year.

Book a couples’ in-room massage or beauty treatment for some serious unwinding. The Lanes health and beauty spa is half a mile away as is Brighton’s David Lloyd Leisure Centre, where Drakes guests are eligible for exclusive offers.
