FB Blog - BrightonNeed to recharge the batteries and take some much needed time out?

Why not check in to Springwood for a relaxing weekend?  Many of our guests use us as a base for exploring the area and Brighton is always high on the agenda.

The beautiful town of Brighton is an easy 40 minute journey away from Springwood, either by car or by hopping on a train from Horley station.  Brighton offers a wide variety visitor attractions worthy of whiling away a day.

If you are seeking a quiet relaxed day there is nearly five and a half miles of shingle beach to the south of the town.  You can take a stroll along the promenade and take in the sights along the shore.  And, of course, fish and chips eaten from your deckchair with your toes in the sand is always an option.

For the more adventurous there are courses in sailing, powerboating and windsurfing out of Hove Lagoon.  Increasing in popularity, kitesurfing offers an adrenaline packed day, with excellent conditions usually possible at beaches either in or around Brighton.

If the seafront is not for you, then why not take a stroll around Brighton’s great selection of quickly independent shops or wander through the historic Open Market.  With a strong focus on fresh nutritious foods and ethical products, the market has a range of traditional market stalls; butcher, fishmonger, eggs, fruit and veg, as well as cafes, art, crafts, fashions, antiques, haberdashery, and more.

Why not experience the extraordinary at the Royal Pavilion, an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.

Alternatively Brighton offers many museums, including the Booth Museum of Natural History which is all about birds, butterflies, fossils, and bones. Founded as a Victorian collector’s private museum, the Booth Museum now brings natural history to life with interactive displays and ‘hands on’ activities, or perhaps the Toy and Model Museum will appeal to your inner child, taking you on a journey back in time.
