Exhibits and Arts Close to Hotels in Brighton

Among the many hotels in Brighton are a few fantastic theaters offering live stage performances and movies. To begin, the Cinematheque offers you the chance to screen films that are within arthouse distribution and not so much on the mainstream of films. The Brighton Revue Company offers high quality theatrical productions year round, while the New Venture Theatre offers theatre acts with a professionalism not normally found in amateurs.

The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery sits in the city’s center, near many of the top rated hotels in Brighton in the Royal Pavilion. Exhibits are shown daily, year round and there is no charge to enter, with the exception of specific exhibits. The Booth Museum of Natural History was originally founded in 1874 by Edward Booth, and has exhibits on skeletons, bones, fossils as well as butterflies and live birds. There are many interactive exhibits and hands on opportunities at this museum, and there is no charge for entrance.

Preston Manor is settled on the outskirts of the city, about 10 minutes from the majority of hotels in Brighton. D?cor with Edwardian styles and elegant rooms, entrance fees are required. Escorted visits are allowed from April until September, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:15 am until 4:15 pm and Sundays from 2:15 pm until 4:15 pm. There is no requirement for booking, but groups can book the manor from October until March. Concessions are available on site for a fee, and identification is required. The draw to the Manor is that so many believe it to be haunted. Tales of sightings of apparitions as well as supernatural occurrances have been told from the time it was built, and still are told today by those who have taken the Ghost Tours. There is a gift shop on site for those that want to take a piece of history home with them.

Also near many hotels in Brighton is the Brighton History Center. Admission is always free, and is open from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am until 5 pm. On the first floor of the Brighton Museum, this is an ideal location to get all the information on places to see and visit in Brighton. From museums to library information on the city to genealogist information and military materials there is something for everyone to see. There is free internet access, photocopying opportunities as well as image reproduction services on site for a fee.
