9 Most Instagrammable Places In Brighton

If you’re looking for the most Instagrammable places in Brighton to fill your feed with beauty, then look no further. Here’s our ultimate photo guide.

1. Brighton Palace Pier Sign

Easily top of the most Instagrammable places in Brighton list.

The famous Brighton Palace Pier is the most photographed landmark in the town.

We advise heading down early in the morning, or just before sunset, for the best possible lighting and the least amount of people.

Trying to shoot in the day time at this spot will prove near impossible with the sheer crowds of tourists passing through.

Once you’re finished capturing photos, make sure to head down and check out the arcades for one of the most traditional things to do in Brighton.

2. The Pier

Just down from the main entrance to Brighton Palace Pier is this view of the fair ground rides, that make Brighton seafront so magical.

Capturing the helta skelta in the distance was our main objective, however there are plenty of photo opportunities available by simply walking up and down the pier.

Grab a candy floss and get creative with all the fun fair vibes.

A must add destination to your Brighton itinerary.

3. Royal Pavilion

The Royal Pavilion is a palace and a Grade I listed former royal residence in the centre of town. It’s also one of the most Instagrammable places in Brighton!

The palace itself is beautiful to look at from the many surrounding gardens. People tend to pack a picnic and sit within or close to the grounds of the Royal Pavilion.

If you have a bit of patience, or visit early in the morning, you can capture this symmetrical shot with no one in the background!

Alternatively, if you fancy looking inside you can get your ticket at Royal Pavilion Admission Ticket.

4. Upside Down House

An obvious pick for the Instagrammable places in Brighton list.

The recently opened Upside Down House was built for photographers. From the outside, to the inside, you can have plenty of fun getting snap happy and creating mind boggling photos.

With lots of bright colours and different angles there are endless photo opportunities – just let your imagination run wild!

We opted for the full upside down shot, with Lauren clearly getting into the spirit of it all.

5. Brighton i360

Similar to the Eye in London, Brighton i360 is an innovative project that has created an iconic landmark on the famous Brighton seafront at the landward end of the former West Pier.

For the best views over Brighton and some great instagram shots, this observation deck is where you’ll find just that.

At 162m high, as you can imagine, it’s also one of the best places for sunset photo opportunities in Brighton!

You can book your ticket at Brighton i360 Ticket.

6. Promenade At Night

In the evening a great thing to do in Brighton is walk along the Promenade.

With the Pier lighting up come sundown, it makes for a romantic stroll along the seafront and can also be an awesome opportunity for some night photography!

We caught this subtle photo of Bright Palace Pier under a lamppost on the street. Just be sure to take care if you balance on the railings!

7. Prince Albert Pub

Situated on Trafalgar Street, Brighton’s Prince Albert Pub is also known as The Home of the Free.

On the side of the building, you’ll find colourful, graffiti paintings of world-famous rock stars that have passed away. There’s even a scribble from Banksy on there too.

So if you’re a fan of music legends, this is a must visit! Or, if you’re simply on the hunt for stand-out Instagrammable places in Brighton then this could be a great spot!

8. North Laine

Not to be confused with ‘The Lanes’, North Laine is a shopping and residential district of Brighton, representing a colourful mixture of small and diverse shops and independent traders.

With its much wider streets, and less hustle and bustle, North Laine makes for a great place to take your time and explore.

It’s also a famous photo spot with its zig-zag bunting running the length of the shopping street.

9. Around Town

For those that don’t know, Brighton is the LGBT capital of of the UK. So there are always flamboyant pieces of artwork and decorations to be found around the town.

We spotted this ‘Be Together’ sign hanging outside Lloyds Bank on North Street, and being a ‘couples photography’ page how could we not grab a photo.

So, if you’re looking for some quirky, colourful Instagrammable places in Brighton – simply walk around the town itself.

A great way to get around Brighton is the City Sightseeing Brighton: Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour.
