Tours resumed from 11 April. BRIGHTON & HOVE

On Sunday 11 April, City Sightseeing tours of Brighton resumed, offering panoramic views of Brighton’s elegant Regency architecture, iconic landmarks and attractions, historic streets, restaurants, bars and shops, and representing a welcome sign that life is opening up again in the city after a year of lockdowns and social isolation.

“Travel in comfort and style, guided by our audio tour packed with inside knowledge and fascinating facts about Brighton as you glide around the city. Relax and stay on for the entire loop or hop on and off the bus,” said the operator as it encourages people to venture out again. “Hop off the bus for an ice cream at Brighton Palace Pier, walk across the beach, or do some shopping in North Laine. You can also check out the Pavilion, Hove Lawns, the i360 on the seafront, Sussex Cricket Ground, the Lanes and Royal Crescent, the Marina and the Volks Railway.”

Brighton & Hove and Metrobus Managing Director Martin Harris said: “I’m really pleased to welcome locals and visitors back on to our CitySightseeing buses. They really are the best way to see Brighton. The open-topped bus gives you a privileged, bird’s eye view across one of Britain’s liveliest and most beautiful cities.

“Take a whistle stop tour around Brighton’s highlights and find your bearings in the city, or you can spend the whole day getting to know it using just one bus ticket. Our buses are clean, safe and accessible and we are looking forward to having our customers back on board, especially as the weather warms up.”

Tickets can be bought on the bus with contactless or via the operator’s mobile app, as well as in cash on board, and those with a citySAVER or networkSAVER ticket are entitled to a 10% discount.

Passengers who live locally, in the BN postcode, can also receive 10% off when buying a ticket from the driver with proof of residency.

Tours operate every day until 30 October, hourly between 1000 until 1700hrs, and every 30 minutes from Sunday 6 June.
