Luxury waterside living in the heart of Brighton

Our next destination needs no introduction; renowned for its culture, architecture, picturesque beaches and urban feel, Brighton is one of the UK’s most popular seaside cities. If you’re looking for city living with a more laid-back feel, a Waterlodge in Brighton Marina will be ideal for you.

Brighton life

Brighton is unique in being a seaside town with a modern, urban feel. It has a diverse population and a music, culture, and food scene that are thriving, with something to suit every taste. It also boasts a popular beach with an amusements pier, which is great for keeping the family busy! If shopping is your thing, Brighton has a healthy balance of bigger retailers, as well as a range of smaller independent and boutique stores.

Sound ideal? It’s no wonder that so many Brits dream of retiring or owning a second property in the popular city. Unfortunately, the average house in Brighton costs £457,673 (which is 54% higher than the national average), making the dream feel less achievable. That’s the position that Simon Jenkins found himself in, until he realised that he could own a luxury floating apartment in Brighton for just a fraction of the cost of a typical property, enabling him to achieve his ambition of owning a holiday home by the sea.

Life in Brighton Marina

So, what would life be like for you and your family at Brighton Marina? True to the energy of Brighton, the marina’s village (which surrounds the marina itself) always has something going on. From shops, to restaurants, to cinemas and bowling lanes, you’re never going to be bored!

Inside the marina, there’s a laundrette, newly refurbished West Jetty facilities and recycling facilities with the eco-friendly marina dweller in mind. Even better yet, Brighton is only a short commute from London, making it perfect for city workers on the lookout for weekends away from the capital – or those who are looking to make the most of a more flexible way of working as the UK returns to normal.

With so much to do in Brighton, you’ve probably already got a list of the many places that you’d like to visit! But, if you’d like a little inspiration, here are some of our favourite things to do in the East Sussex seaside town.

Unleash your inner child on the pier

If you think of a pier as a drab, rundown and outdated Victorian structure, you need to think again… Brighton Pier is bustling with tourists and locals alike, all wanting to soak up the authentic British seaside town atmosphere (and even seek a few thrills on one of the pier’s many rides!)

Go shopping down The Lanes

If you’re wanting a bit of retail therapy, why not head down ‘The Lanes’, where you’ll find a selection of independent retailers, jewellers and homeware shops?

British Airways i360

Want to get better acquainted with your new stomping ground? What better way than to take a 360-degree tour 162 metres above the ground. In fact, it’s not just Brighton that you’ll be able to see, as the views from the i360 span all the way to Beachy Head and the Isle of Wight.

Visit the seafront

Brighton’s lively, four mile pebble beach boasts restaurants, clubs and carousels.

Visit a venue

Brighton has a whole host of different theatres, with everything from drag acts, drum and bass, operas and pop groups. If you’re a fan of a live show, you’re sure to find something to your taste.

Watch a football match

If you’re into your football, then you’re in luck! You’ll be only a short distance from premier league club Brighton and Hove Albion.

Walk around Devil’s Dyke

This South Downs beauty spot is popular with locals wanting to escape the busy town centre to the rolling hills of Devil’s Dyke, that are only a stone’s throw away.

Get an LGBTQ+ walking tour

It’s well known that Brighton has been at the centre of the UK’s LGBTQ+ movement. This walking tour is great for those wishing to learn more about Brighton’s progressive history.
