When to fly

Peak Season:

The summer months of late May through to August are usually the best times to visit Brighton with temperatures averaging around 17 degrees, although you can never be sure about the British weather. Book flights to Brighton at this time to experience one of the many summer events that Brighton is home to such as TAKEPART Festival in June, Love Supreme Festival in July and the Tribal Earth Festival in August. Thousands fly into the UK and flock in high numbers to Brighton in July to get involved in the world’s biggest free beach and watersports festival, Paddle Round the Pier. The festival takes place annually at the beautiful venue of Hove Lawns and Brighton Hove, and features a program of fun events for everyone from novice to serious athletes such as surfing, paddling boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, kite surfing, mountain biking, live music, kids entertainment and many more unusual sporting events to dabble in.

However one of the biggest, fabulous and most famous event that takes place in August is Brighton’s Summer Pride which is considered as the best Pride festival in the UK.  It is harder to find cheap flights to Brighton during this period because they are in high demand, people flock to the city to join over 160,000 spectators and participants who come together to celebrate everything extravagant, magnificent and marvellous about the parade; and people will continue partying, dancing and singing late into the night in many of the popular and buzzing bars the seaside town has to offer.

Off Season:

The busiest periods in Brighton are during summer, weekends and school holidays, when Brighton sees families, couples and friends travel to the seaside town to enjoy a break. Cooler temperatures arrive in Brighton in October until April, with temperatures averaging from 5 to 12 degrees. This is when you are more likely to find the best deals and a cheap flight to Brighton.  

Destination overview:

Also known as “London on Sea,” take a flight to Brighton and discover the coolest seaside destination on the South Coast. Popular since Regency times, Brighton’s architecture is particularly appealing, with winding streets (known as “the lanes”), packed full of trendy, arty and eclectic shops and cafés that lead down to the seafront. The hub of the town is Palace Pier, the seafront and its famous pebbled beach.

The Brighton Pavilion is an impressive affair; it looks like it belongs in a Far Eastern fairy-tale. It was built by the Prince Regent in 1815, in the style of the Taj Mahal. Visitors can tour the building to see its interiors and gardens.

The liberal attitude that the Prince Regent brought to Brighton lives on today. It is known as the “gay capital” of the UK and the area of Kemptown (along King’s Cliff to Black Rock) is full of bars and clubs that fly the rainbow-coloured flag.

How long is the flight to Brighton?

Flights to Brighton from other parts of the UK range from about 1.5h-4h. When your destination city is Brighton, you’ll fly into London’s Gatwick Airport. Your flight will be on the longer end of the spectrum if you experience layovers along your journey. When departing from cities that offer direct flights to Gatwick, despite how far north they may be, such as with Edinburgh, Scotland, you can book a direct flight and arrive in Gatwick at about an hour and a half.

Where can you get direct flights to Brighton from?

If you’re flying out of Scotland, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Inverness airports each offer dozens of direct flights to Gatwick daily, from easyJet and British Airways. If you’re departing from other cities in England, such as Manchester, Birmingham, Norwich, Newcastle, Leeds, or Liverpool, you’ll make one stopover en route to Gatwick, with no direct flights available. Flights from Cardiff and Swansea, Wales are not direct to Gatwick, and make at least one stopover along the way, the location of which depends on the airline.

How do you get from Brighton airport to the city centre?

London’s Gatwick Airport is about 44 km north of Brighton’s city centre. To get to Brighton from Gatwick, you have several options at your disposal. Taking the ThamesLink rail is a popular option, offering direct service to Brighton for £10.80, with a journey time of just over half an hour. Other rail services, including Gatwick Express and Southern, provide similar services throughout the day. Coach services, such as National Express, offer affordable rides from Gatwick to Brighton throughout the day for upwards of £4.

What are some things to do in Brighton?

Brighton remains one of the UK’s most charming and popular seaside resort towns while championing a thriving cultural scene all its own. Brighton Palace Pier has been standing for over a century and welcomes countless visitors annually. Go here for classic pier amusements, like arcade games, theme park rides, and chip shop fare. For some impressive Indian-Saracenic inspired architecture, head to Royal Pavilion, where its towering presence and ornate detailing is sure to wow. Britain’s best performers, be it comedians, musicians, or actors, perform at Brighton Centre when in town, so be sure to check out its events calendar during your stay. Get a taste of genuine Brighton style at The Lanes, the city’s colourful and thriving pedestrian shopping labyrinth home to local record shops, bookstores, vintage outfitters, cafes, and bars galore.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Brighton?

No, citizens of the United Kingdom do not need a passport or visa to fly to Brighton, as it’s also on British soil. Valid government-issued photo identification is needed when flying though, so be sure to bring your driver’s license or passport to verify your identification as needed.

Getting around Brighton

It’s approximately a 50-minute drive away or you can travel on the Gatwick Express from inside the airport but expect to make changes to different trains along your journey.
