It’s freezing out there! 10 things to do INDOORS in Brighton

And it’s begun, the cold weather has set in and it is FREEZING! Let’s be honest, it’s making us all want to crawl under our duvets and stay there till May. I remember thinking in first year that venturing into Brighton was only properly worth it in summer – those days at the beach with ice creams are pretty dreamy – but now in my final year I’ve found there are lots of things to do in autumn and winter all indoors in Brighton City Centre. Here is my top 10 (in no particular order)….

  1. The Painting Pottery Café

In the North Laines, you can while away a rainy cold afternoon and get your creative juices flowing.


2. Lazerquest (LazerZone)

Channel your inner James Bond and head down to LazerZone on West Street with your mates.


3.  Stanmer House

Just a short walk from university is Stanmer House, with their warm fires and hearty well priced roasts, you will feel miles away from university.


4. Karaoke – Lucky Voice

Warm up those vocal chords and hire one of the rooms at Lucky Voice with friends.


5. Sea Life Centre

Don’t mistake this as an area just for children! It’s a great way to spend an afternoon escaping the rain and wind outside – just make sure you avoid school holiday dates!


6. Arcade Games at the Pier

If you can battle your way through the wind and along the pier you can enjoy an afternoon at the arcades! It’s less busy in autumn and winter so you can get your pick of the games.


7. Komedia

They say laughter is the best medicine, so go fight those winter colds with a visit to Komedia.


8. Duke of York Cinema

Join as a student for £20 for the year and get 25% off food and drink, 2 free films and membership to E4 slackers club!


9. The Old Market

Tucked on a side street in between Hove and Brighton is the Old Market venue, hosting music, theatre, dance and comedy. Tickets are cheap and you can get the bus to Hove and get off right by the venue. http://theoldmarket.comthe_old_market_-_geograph_org_uk_-_514602_cropped

10. The Dome

Last, but by no means least is The Dome. One of Brighton’s main cultural venues, it holds nights of drama, dance, music and art. Definitely worth checking out, but book early as the events normally sell out!

There you have it, 10 things you can do during these cold months in Brighton INSIDE. Enjoy!
