Whether your Dad is arty, a beach-lover, adventurous, or outdoorsy – a visit to Brighton & Hove, the cosmopolitan city-by-the-sea, is the perfect gift for Father’s Day. Brighton is certainly the ideal location for the beach loving Dad. With its iconic seafront for picnics, wind-surfing and volleyball, seaside Dad will feel right at home. Treat the young at heart Dad to urban zorbing and segways on Brighton beach or enjoy the fair rides and sweets on Brighton Pier.
Take in Brighton’s beautiful views and send Dad sky high on Father’s Day with a helicopter trip or sightseeing flight, complete with celebratory champagne. From the sky to the sea, treat Dad to a scenic boat trip, a thrilling speed boat ride, or relaxing fishing trip from Brighton Marina. Head off the beaten track with So Sussex for a range of activities including fishing, cycling and walking trips in rural Sussex.
Spoil the fashion-conscious Dad with designer tailoring or accessories from stylish Gresham Blake. Or for the eco-warrior father, pay a visit to Earthship Brighton, a cutting edge eco building constructed from waste car tyres and recycled materials.
A visit to Proud Brighton Ballroom’s will make bold Dad’s eyes bulge with the retro supper club’s burlesque, cabaret and musical performers, or if Dad boasts of being tough and brave, send him to FEAR Brighton – a live action house of horror ghoulish enough to scare any thrill seeker.
