DAY 1

Brighton

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!

DAY 2

Bottomless Brunch

What better way to start the day then with a bottomless brunch and some ‘Brighton style’ entertainment on the side?

Iconic Brighton

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.

DAY 3

Cheese and Wine Tasting

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.
