Brighton’s Landmarks: Brighton Marina
If long walks by the shore or water sports such as diving, yachting and sailing are your sort of thing, then the Brighton Marina is the place for you. The Marina is great if you want to spend some time there as part of a romantic weekend, if you just to want to spend a day trip, or even just a couple hours; head to Europe’s largest marina today for some great entertainment.
The marina was built in the 1970s and has been a popular attraction ever since.
The marina has a whole host of interesting and fun things for you to do, for instance, shopping, there’s a cinema, a bowling alley, casino, cafes and restaurants for you to eat and drink at, there’s an outdoor ping pong set, as well as New York style chess tables that you can use. Essentially, there is something for everyone.
If you’re the sporty type and want to take advantage of the Brighton shores, there are also a number of businesses in the local area that can help you with that.
