Brighton is known for many things, including its unique culture, stunning seaside views, and artistic atmosphere. If you are looking for your next Instagram-worthy spot, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we will be giving you our ultimate guide to our favourite spots in Brighton. 


The Iconic Brighton Pier

First things first, we highly recommend starting your Instagram journey at the iconic Brighton Pier. Nothing says ‘welcome to Brighton’ quite like a walk down the amazing pier, complete with arcades and one of the yummiest restaurants in Brighton. With its classic British seaside charm (and a tasty ice cream if the weather permits), this landmark offers a multitude of photo opportunities that you won’t want to miss. 

Picture this, the rolling sea, pebble beach and tonnes of tasty Brighton restaurants to enjoy – your Instagram feed will look perfect for months to come. You can capture the vibrant rides, the bustling arcades, and the stunning views of the coastline. Also, top tip from us: don’t forget to snap a shot of the pier lit up at night for a truly magical touch to your feed.

The Royal Pavilion Gardens

Again surrounded by some of the best restaurants in Brighton, is The Royal Pavilion Gardens. Here you can indulge in the regal beauty and the truest form of Brighton culture. The stunning architecture of the Royal Pavilion can be the perfect backdrop, with its well-maintained gardens, for a spot of lunch, or to enjoy take away from one of the best and tastiest of Brighton restaurants. 

The Royal Pavilion provides an elegant and sophisticated setting for your photos – no matter the time of year. In the summer months, you will find the gardens packed with like-minded tourists who have travelled to see this glorious building and in the winter, you can even take part in some of their more festive events, such as ice skating. From the intricate details of the Pavilion to the serene landscapes, your Instagram will be elevated with a touch of historic grandeur.

You can also experience two of the best of Brighton’s most Instagram-able spots in one day with our exclusive Brighton i360 and Royal Pavilion Explorer Pass.

i360 Brighton 

Another Instagram-worthy spot in Brighton is the i360. Whilst we might be biased, we believe that the i360 offers you something that no other Brighton attractions do – a full 360-degree perspective of the city. With our glass pods, you can get a full aerial view of Brighton in all its glory. 

Whether you’re capturing the cityscape during the day or the twinkling lights at night, the i360 promises a unique and unforgettable visual experience for your followers. We would suggest elevating your Instagram game by capturing the sleek and futuristic design of the structure, as well as documenting your ascent.  Once you are at the very top, you can snap a few more pictures of the breathtaking views of the city, the coastline, and even the South Downs, making your Instagram feed soar to new heights – both literally and figuratively.

Also, you can have a meal before or after your ride at the i360 Cafe. Embraced by locals, the i360 Café stands as Brighton’s go-to spot, offering an authentic experience with its stunning seaside views. 

Cherished by both locals and tourists, this café is a beloved destination offering a delightful array of coffee, pastries, and lunch options that cater to the entire family. In addition to being a favourite among Brighton residents, the café provides a remarkable sea view from its cosy sun terrace, providing a sheltered prime location to enjoy the beach scenery.

Or, if you are looking for a more romantic meal, you have also come to the right place. 

You can reserve your spot for our enchanting Sky Dining Experience, a unique opportunity to enjoy a delightful three-course meal amidst the stars. Hosted on the exclusive Brighton i360 Pod, you’ll be able to eat your dinner with the dazzling city lights below, creating an undeniably Instagram-worthy moment.
