Local Host Loz
The must do experiences that you can cross off your bucket list
Lauren, better known as ‘Loz’ to her friends, will be your Host for this trip. Having hosted groups for 5+ years, she knows all the best tips and tricks to make sure you get the most out of your mini break. Loz is obsessed with all things quirky and cool and knows how to find the hidden gems of Brighton, alongside all the classic ‘must see’ spots. As well as Loz, you’ll meet Tom – a master Brighton Wine Maker who specialises in showcasing Wines from the South Downs and his native France. Together, they will make sure your weekend in Brighton is a stay cation to remember.
Get ready for the most 'Brighton' welcome in town: the ibis hotel’s colourful, modern reception area has been designed with the help of a local artist, so you'll arrive to unique images created by emerging talent. Our accommodation is near the centre of the action with the beach just ten minutes walk away, and an easy stroll to Brighton's many bars, restaurants, shops and attractions including North Lanes, Brighton Dome and the iconic Royal Pavilion.
First we’ll check in, then it’s time for a fun-filled long weekend in this thriving and diverse seaside city. We’ll start with a walk through Brighton’s famous Lanes, where you’ll find a maze of alleyways filled with heritage shops, vintage finds and independent boutiques. Then it’s time to get to know your fellow Contiki crew at a local brewery for an included group dinner. Enjoy your first drink on us, then let’s see where the night takes us!
What better way to start the day then with a bottomless brunch and some ‘Brighton style’ entertainment on the side?
We’ll enjoy the rest of the day doing as Brightonians do, exploring Brighton’s iconic pier and shops. This evening we’ll let our inner child of the ‘80s run free when we meet up for an included dinner at World’s End, Brighton’s favourite Arcade bar. This bar-pub-arcade extravaganza is packing a ‘Stranger things’ vibe, with all the flashing lights, gaming consoles and VR tech you can handle alongside the craft beers and comforts of a proper British pub. Our evening here includes a 2-course meal with plenty of plant-based junk food options by Vegan Noms available, and unlimited arcade games for you to go wild.
It’s our final full day in Brighton and we’ll start off by enjoying our own private included wine & cheese tasting with a local Sommelier. Together we’ll taste four wines, paired with their perfect cheese partners, and learn about the notes and history of each one. By the end you’ll be swilling wine like a pro! Then, you’ll have some free time to tick off any last minute Brighton musts, like taking a dip in the sea (if you’re bold) or checking out that beautiful exotic pleasure palace otherwise known as the Royal Pavilion.
