Looking for the best things to do on a day out in Brighton with teens?

Let’s be honest, planning a day out with teenagers can sometimes be a challenge!

There are loads of quirky and insta-worthy things to see and do along Brighton’s seafront. Check out our top things to do with teens during a day out in the city.


Start in Hove at Norton Road Car Park.  Grab yourself a takeaway coffee (or an early ice cream) from Marrocco’s and set off along the seafront either walking or by bike.

Stop beside the famous Hove beach huts on the promenade for your first insta image – the rainbow painted huts are particularly popular.

Your next Instagram worthy moment is on board the very cool BA i360 glass viewing pod – surrounded by 360o views over the coast and the city. Plus, 16 – 24-year-olds fly for just £10 with our Young Person ticket!


Enjoy a selection of takeaway street food from our Beach Huts at beach level. Or take a seat at the i360 Café terrace located on our upper deck, it’s one of the few elevated outdoor terraces on Brighton’s seafront – perfect for people watching.


Just next door to BA i360, you’ll find the Upside Down House – another Instagram opportunity in this unique and quirky venue.

Make your way along the seafront to Brighton Palace Pier to enjoy some of the adrenaline-fuelled rides at the end of the Pier.  Teens also love the penny arcades or the dance games!

Then head to the Brighton Zip. Specially designed for Brighton, the 300m long zip line is the only one its size in the South. You can also take on the ride on the drop zone for a 24-metre freefall experience.

Walk along the seafront path from the Pier to Yellow Wave Beach Club. Book a beach volleyball court or simply enjoy a cold drink and watch the action!  Alternatively, challenge the family to the Jungle Rumble Adventure golf course, featuring streams, waterfalls and bridges, this outdoor crazy golf is fun whatever your age.

Walk or cycle back towards BA i360.  Pick up a cuppa and a delicious snack from the Flour Pot Café, just to the east of BA i360.  Enjoy on the beach – maybe take a dip if it’s warm enough!

Challenge your kids to a game of footie or frisbee on Hove Lawns.


Grab a takeaway pizza from Fatto a Mano in Hove, either to enjoy back down on Hove Lawns, on the beach as the sun sets or in the gardens of nearby Adelaide Crescent.



We advise all visitors to check with each venue highlighted before visiting to ensure they are open and to familiarise yourself with their COVID19 measures.  To understand how BA i360 are keeping visitors and staff safe visit click here
