Whilst the summer might almost be past us, don’t worry as there are things going on in Brighton all year round. We have plenty of self-catering accommodation available, and September is a great time for a couple’s getaway as you can still enjoy the last of the sunshine without the rush of the summer holidays. Here are a few suggestions of things to do with your loved one in September.
One great activity is the Colour Run which returns to Brighton on 23rd September. Nicknamed ‘The Happiest 5k on the Planet’, hundreds of people run (or walk!) along the seafront dressed in white and are then covered in an explosion of colour. At the finish line you are greeted with a festival full of great music – this take a seaside stroll with your partner to a different level!
Brighton is a great place for wine lovers as not only are there plenty of wine bars throughout the city, there are also some great vineyards in the surrounding areas. Tours and tasting sessions will run throughout September at many local vineyards such as the Albourne Estate and Ridgeview Wine Estate just outside of Brighton. What a great way to get away from the busy city and enjoy some local wine!
Or if you feel like sampling some local food, the Very Independent Brighton Tour is the thing for you! This celebration of the best independent food and drink Brighton has to offer runs every Friday and Saturday throughout September. On the topic of local food, Brighton is well known for its many great places to eat. Sample the steaks at the Coal Shed, fresh seafood at Riddle and Finns, or try one of the city’s many great vegetarian restaurants such as Terre a Terre or Food for Friends. With these and so many other places to pick from there is something to suit everyone’s tastes.
Another thing that makes Brighton so special are the beautiful nature landscapes that surround the city. Being next to the South Downs there are plenty of stunning places to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life with a peaceful walk with your other half. And if you’re looking for a great view over Brighton, a trip up the i360 gives you incredible sights of the city and out to sea.
So even though the temperature is dropping and the days are drawing in, there is still so much going on in Brighton that September is as good as time as any to visit. Make sure you book your self-catering accommodation today!
