Brighton is home to many things –Tuaca, fun nightlife, The Lanes, and of course, the frequently beautiful sunset. As resident tour guides for the area, here at Brighton i360, we are all about giving you tips and tricks for finding the best spots in our city. In this article we will be breaking down our five favourite spots to view a sunset in Brighton. 

1. Sunset On Brighton Beach

One of the most popular spots to witness the iconic Brighton sunset is from the beach itself. Either on our pebbled coast or from Brighton pier, you won’t be the only one flocking to this destination. As well as having, arguably, the best fish and chips (plus, the feistiest seagulls) we also have some of the most eye-catching sunsets. Identified by the stunning pinks and purples, have you really visited Brighton if you haven’t witnessed a sunset on our beach?

2. Devils Dyke & The Iconic Brighton Sunset

Next up on our list of the best places to watch a sunset is Devils Dyke. Located slightly out of the centre of Brighton, if you are looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the sunset, we couldn’t recommend this place more highly. With its natural beauty and rolling hills, the Devils Dyke is worth a visit in itself. Pair that with a nice bottle of wine, a picnic for two and a sunset- this sounds like a perfect date

3. The Highest Point in Brighton: Brighton i360

There is nothing quite like experiencing a Brighton sunset from 138 metres in the sky. As well as an unmatched view of our bustling city, you can also take a 30 minute journey into the clouds and view our iconic sunset from a different perspective. If you would like this opportunity, we would recommend booking a View 360 timed entry ticket to guarantee your space. Upon entering our viewing pod, you will be able to grab a drink from our Nyetimber Sky Bar, and then sit back to enjoy your experience. 

4. Sunrise at Brighton Marina 

Would this be a list about Brighton sunsets without mentioning the marina? The marina is another popular spot to watch either a sunset or sunrise in Brighton. Surrounded by beautiful boats, you will be able to soak in a Brighton sunrise before hitting the main city sites and landmarks. Or, you can wind down your day with a promenade along the marina on the hour of the sunset before returning home. 

5. Watching The Sunset On Ditchling Beacon

Did you know that Ditchling Beacon is 814 feet (248 metres) above sea level? Also its own notable landmark, we would always recommend a visit to Ditchling Beacon. Perfect for watching a Brighton sunset, Ditchling Beacon will have you feeling on top of the world. If you have added any of these sunset spots to your Brighton itinerary, make sure to grab lots of pictures and let us know.
