What's The Weather Like In Brighton?

When it's raining and dreary in  London you'll often find that it's lovely and sunny in Brighton. Due to the moderating influence of the English Channel, you can find yourself basking in clear sunshine while towns and cities an hour away by train are overcast and chilly.

Whatever time of the year you visit Brighton you wonât 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. And the sounds of seagulls and the relaxed atmosphere of a seaside town are present all year round.

Brighton's Changeable Weather

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.
