Best Things to Do in Brighton in the Sunner and When it is Sunny
When it is cloudless and super sunny, all you will wanna do is go to Brighton beach and take in the sun while you can, and that is a great idea, but please do use a good quality sunblock cream. But if you want to be a little bit more proactive, here are my top suggestions for making the best of your visit to Brighton in the sun.
1. Brighton Beach and City Bike Tour
Without a doubt, the best way to experience Brighton and Hove city and seafront, if you can ride a bike and the sun is raining above. This is a fun way to experience the city from the comfort of a saddle.
2. Ramble the South Downs & Seven Sisters in Style on a cloudiless day
Walk not one, but two of the UK’s most beautiful National Parks, taking in stunning Sussex’s picturesque landscapes of the South downs. As well as the calm seascape and the tallest chalk cliffs in the UK found only Seven Sisters.
By chauffered from Brighton to both national parks and back again by the comfort of a Mercedes-Benz minibus for an unforgettable all-day experience.
Limited spaces available, and likely to book out quickly, so best to book in advance.
3. British Airways i360 & Drink at the Nyetmber Sky Bar
Make sure it is sunny when you go up here, as the i360 still run flights in heavy fog although they do have a ‘weather guarantee’ that offer complimentary return tickets valid for 3 months in poor visibility.
But when you get it right you get it right as the views are amazing. The sunshine illuminates the Brighton city and beach, with the flowing fields of the south downs overhead as you face north, Beachy Head to the distance on your right and even the Isle of Wight can be seen just under 50 miles to your left.

Brighton Weather and Climate Change
As a cycling tour guide in Brighton for over 6 years now, I can say that I have seen a noticeable change in the seasons and weather though out the year. Winters are colder and Summers hotter, but even then the summer months hold more trenchant rainstorms that come and go as they only use to in Asia.
As long as you have strong sun cream, with a high factor for the hot and humid summer months. A rain mac to cover you from the sudden showers in both the summer and Autumn, and a warm coat, scarf and gloves for the wintertime, you will be sure to have a perfect visit, no matter what the season.
Have a great trip
