Weather in Brighton
When itĂ˘s raining and dreary in London youĂ˘ll often find that itĂ˘s beautiful and sunny in Brighton. You may find that you hop on a train at Victoria Station thinking that the weather you are experiencing in London is NOT the weather you want for a seaside visit although, due to the moderating influence of the English Channel, you can find yourself basking in clear sunshine while London is overcast and horrible.
July and August are the warmest months in Brighton, perfect for strolling along the pier or enjoying a meal at one of the many beach-side cafes or restaurants. The average daily temperature in July and August is 17 degrees, though, like London, it is not uncommon for temperatures to go up into the 20Ă˘s for days at a time. The beautiful coastal breezes that blow in over the English Channel provide a refreshing breeze across the town and blow the smells of the sea into the streets, perfect on a summerĂ˘s day.
Whatever time of the year you visit Brighton you wonĂ˘t be disappointed; the charming cobbled streets of the Lanes are reminiscent of the winding streets of Mykonos giving the impression that you are in a world outside of England. The pier-side cafes are unique and seem to capture the distinct character of Brighton while the sounds of seagulls and the relaxed atmosphere of a seaside town are present all year round.
Since Brighton is in Southeast England (which is known for its changeable weather), Brighton experiences the same fickle weather so expect overcast skies and rainy days at any time of the year. One day of rain can be met with four days of sun or vice versa, so come prepared for either.
Winter, from December to February, will bring average daily temperatures of 5 to 6 degrees. ItĂ˘s not entirely uncommon for the mercury to fall below freezing, though it doesnĂ˘t happen too often throughout winter. Some nights can get particularly chilly and, when the cold breezes blow, the days feel much colder although the weather moderation provided by the warm waters of the British Channel keeps the winters pretty mild.
January 2007 saw Brighton covered in a blanket of snow. With white snowflakes covering the pebble beach and the pier covered in a picturesque light coating, it made for a dazzling sight. Incredibly, early morning swimmers were still seen taking their routine dips despite the freezing conditions!
Autumn and spring are much the same. Spring brings the colours alive in BrightonĂ˘s many parks and sees the mercury rise slightly in the build-up to summer. Autumn brings the changing colours of the trees and can often see slightly more rain than the spring months.
Whether it be a weekend break to escape the hustle and bustle of London or a week long visit, Brighton is a perfect getaway. With so many things to offer including theme parks, rides, games, an electric nightlife, little cafes bursting with character and many upmarket places to eat, as well as a range of accommodation at different prices, Brighton has it all.
