British holidays - check out Brighton Festival breaks

It's official - with the Euro and pound nearly one on one and the continuing economic situation, loads of Brits are holidaying in the UK. So if you're looking for inspiration, howabout a Festival break in the city by the sea?

Set to topple Edinburgh as UK's top festival city

Building up to topple Edinburgh’s crown as best UK Festival city, Brighton is already revving up the festival in May. The month when the city really comes alive, Brighton makes a great destination for a family or cultural break.

FOUR festivals in one

With FOUR festivals in one - The Brighton Festival, Brighton Festival Fringe, Artists Open House and the Great Escape, the city is packed with over 700 performances, including art, music, sculpture, cabaret, comedy, theatre and family events.

Anish Kapoor joins festival as Artistic Director

This year also sees Turner Prize winner Anish Kapoor bring his seminal Sky Mirror to the city, as well as brand new works commissioned specially for the Festival, so it really is a year not to miss.

All that in a city that oozes culture, creativity, fabulous shopping and award winning restaurants, plus a great laid back vibe, makes Brighton the perfect place for a great British holiday! Oh and we’ve got sea, a magnificent Royal Palace and loads of stunning countryside and coastline right on the doorstep too.
