Relax at Preston Park

Looking for an affordable day trip with the whole family? Brighton boasts a range of beautiful green spaces which you can enjoy for free this summer. Whether your children are on break for the summer holidays, or you are looking to spend some one on one time with your partner, Preston Park has a myriad of different activities to enjoy. Grab a coffee at the park’s coffee house, lounge about with a picnic or simply walk through the gardens. Preston Park is a well known tourist attraction in Brighton, so expect it to be busy and bustling as soon as the hot weather hits. Remember to bring your sunscreen though as Preston park has little coverage.
