Why Visit Brighton This Summer?
The question of whether summer holidays will be possible this year has been on everyone’s lips. Due to the lingering coronavirus, international travel is looking less likely by the day, but from this restriction we see an opportunity – to explore the best of Britain.
We think a trip to Brighton this summer may be the smartest move you can make – it’ll be less busy, it’s easy to explore the city whilst social-distancing, and it’s the ultimate base camp from which to see the whole South Coast. So, as we open our brand-new aparthotel in Brighton, here’s our case for a British staycation on the South Coast.
Less busy than usual
Last year, more than 1.5 million people came down to stay at least one night in Brighton during the summer. Of that number, around a quarter came from overseas. Due to the complications of international travel this year, however, that number will drop enormously, if not all the way down to zero. So, with the hotels open in Brighton still, there will be more capacity and more space for a ‘staycation’ break on the South coast – making it safer and all the more relaxing.
Think, for example, of Brighton’s famous beach. At close to three miles in length, it accommodates a global influx of visitors each year, all looking to roll out the beach towel and relax by the water. Given the probable drop in numbers due to travel restrictions this summer, it will not only be more relaxing but also likely possible to comply with social distancing on holiday.
No need for public transport
One of the most common questions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic has been: Is it safe to use public transport? The answer to this question is complicated and varies from city to city, but when it comes to Brighton, it doesn’t really matter. The city is perfectly sized so that every attraction is a short walk away from the central area. From our Q Square Aparthotel, for example, the walk to the beach takes just 5 minutes, to the pier is 10 minutes, and to the Royal Pavilion takes 7 minutes.
The South Coast is your oyster
Although you could easily enjoy all of Brighton on foot, the city is located in an ideal position close to some of the best countryside and most intriguing towns in the South of England. If you come to stay at our aparthotel you can bring your car and park in Brighton from as little as £6 a day. And then, if you take a 45-minute drive out West, you’ll find yourself in the heart of the South Downs, a near-endless stretch of rolling hills and fresh greenery. Alternatively, if you want to visit the historic seaside town of Hastings, which gives its name to the famous battle, it’s just an hour’s drive the other way – which includes some superb sea views.
Our debut summer in Brighton!
After over five years of hard work and meticulous design, our Q Square Aparthotel in the centre of Brighton is open this year. We are more than excited for our first summer on the South coast – and we can’t wait to share that excitement with you. That’s why the most expensive night of your stay this summer is on us. And, because it’s an uncertain world out there, if you cancel up to 72 hours before your stay we’ll give you a full refund thanks to our new Flexible Cancellations policy. We’ll see you by the sea!
