Luxury Romantic Brighton Break

Although I have lived in Brighton since I was 2 and know the city pretty well one of the things I love about this job is getting to see the place from a visitors perspective. I spent most of yesterday with a journalist and photographer from the French magazine L'Officiel Voyage as they are doing a piece about a break in Brighton targeted at people looking for a high-end luxury type of break, but as Sarah has got us all thinking about romance it struck me the places we were visiting would also be ideal for a romantic trip to Brighton

I started off by meeting them at the Grey's hotel which has cosy four poster beds you won't want to leave and I was reassured by the owner that it is not too late to book a room there for February 14th, so no excuses guys!

Then we went to look around the Lanes and popped into Simultane the flagship store of local designer Sarah Arnett, the gorgeous silk dresses would be perfect for a romantic date in fact I was very tempted by a red dress that was in the sale but unfortunately I have not been able to think of a good excuse for buying it. Then we moved onto John Harrington another local designer (we really are a very creative city!) who makes some fabulous jewellery by taking traditional styles and giving them a contemporary twist

Then it was off to see a couple more hotels - Drakes and Blanch House both of which are ideal for a luxurious break for two. At Drakes the two of you can sip Champagne in a bubbly bath which is handily placed in the window so you don't miss the spectacular sea views. Or stay at Blanch House where you cannot fail to impress your loved one if you book the Decadence suite or for chocolate lovers it has to be the Galaxy room!

Alternatively, Neo Hotel's warm, sophisticated and chic vibe and original wallpapers from Ralph Lauren and vintage Osborne and Little, lends itself really well to romantic breaks.

If you feel inspired then don't forget we have some great Winter Break offers on the main site so that you can treat your loved one to a luxurious romantic break in Brighton
