An Easter Day Out in Brighton with Kids

Looking for something fun to do with the kids this Easter?  A short trip to the coast is a lovely idea and there is no better coastal city for kids than Brighton.  This is a fun, laid-back and diverse city with a tremendous amount to see and do and it is particularly nice during a warm day where you can head down to the seafront and soak up some sun.

Brighton is also easy to reach so you do not have to worry too much about transportation. The train is probably the best method as the station is right in the heart of the city and you can easily book affordable tickets online.

Here are a few options for a fun day out with the kids:

The Pier

One of the obvious attractions and somewhere that kids love is the pier. Here you can enjoy all kinds of snacks, have fun in the arcade and there are also a few exciting rides to try. It is also nice to simply take in the views of the sea and you are right next to the beach so you can chill out after exploring.

Sea Life Centre

Right next to the pier is the spectacular Sea Life Centre which is the oldest operating aquarium in the world and somewhere that you can see over 3,500 amazing marine creatures. It is well-suited to children with family-friendly exhibits and play areas.

The Lanes

One of Brighton’s main attractions and a great place for leisurely exploring is the Lanes. These picturesque streets are lined with independent shops and cafes which creates a cool atmosphere and there are plenty of great shops that the kids will love exploring. This includes the famous Choccywoccydoodah chocolate shop which has all kinds of tasty treats and some truly breathtaking pieces.

Brighton Toy Museum

The toy museum in Brighton is adored by kids and adults as it houses a large collection of toys and models produced up until the mid-twentieth century so you get all kinds of beautiful and interesting historic toys which are vastly different to those that your children will have been brought up with.


If you have not been down to Brighton for a few years then the i360 will be new and something that is hard to miss. It is the country’s highest observation tower outside of London rising 162 metres into the sky for amazing views over Brighton, the surrounding area and out to sea. There is also a nice beachside cafe and you are located along the promenade which is ideal for a leisurely stroll.

Brighton is a great city to take the kids and there are all kinds of things to see and do, especially when the weather is nice which hopefully it will be come Easter.
