UK Outlook for Thursday 31 Jul 2014 to Saturday 9 Aug 2014:

Heavy showers in northern parts of the UK on Thursday, although with sunny spells too. Southern parts are likely to start drier, although the start of August looks likely to bring a transition towards less settled conditions across the UK, as rain or showers in the north spread south on Friday. Over the weekend and into the following week, it is likely to remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain and rather windy conditions affecting all areas at times. However, temperatures should be around normal for the time of year, and perhaps on the warm side in the south. There are indications that drier, sunnier periods may become more prevalent in the south later in the period.

UK Outlook for Sunday 10 Aug 2014 to Sunday 24 Aug 2014:

There is greater than average uncertainty concerning the weather through this period. Currently, generally unsettled conditions are likely to continue through the start of this period in the north with cloudy spells and sporadic outbreaks of rain, while the best of the drier, brighter conditions will be in the south and east. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts, but near normal elsewhere.

Brighton information

Still one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK, Brighton has been a tourist hotspot for many years thanks to its climate, nightlife and fantastic shopping.

Like many of the UK’s contemporary seaside cities, Brighton emerged as a popular haven when the practice of bathing in the sea and ‘taking the sea air’ was considered to be beneficial to a person’s health. Growing from a small fishing village, Brighton became a fashionable place to escape to for busy Londoners, frequented by King George IV and other nobles.

While the 1700s did see Brighton grow in popularity, it was the advent of the railway that really helped to boost the city’s profile. Brighton has consistently attracted visitors for day trips, weekends and entire holidays, with its proximity to London has helped create a huge tourist industry that erupted during the Victorian era, with the building of several attractions including the West Pier and the Palace Pier.

Modern-day Brighton has much to echo the luxury of the Georgian and Victorian eras, with a new swathe of independent boutiques opening in key shopping areas of the city, such as The Lanes, which is packed full of quirky shops, jewellers, antiques dealers and specialist restaurants. For those with a taste for the high street, the area around Brighton Town Clock has a huge number of chain stores to echo their larger, London counterparts.

As you might expect from a seaside resort, the beach, marinas and seafront are essential to the culture and nightlife of the city. Bustling bars and galleries line the pebble beach of Brighton, and throughout the year there’s plenty of live music and artistic activities that take place on the seafront, like the Brighton Festival and Brighton Pride. Brighton was the scene of infamous mod and rocker battles in the 1960s, and cutting-edge music is still at the heart of city. Combined with the thriving LGBT scene, Brighton’s reputation as one of the UK’s foremost cities for nightlife isn’t surprising!

Sporting life in Brighton is just as varied as its cultural life, with Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club playing at the American Express Stadium (affectionately known as The Amex) in nearby Falmer. Seafaring sports are also popular, with yachting clubs based around Brighton Marina and the city also hosts the annual Brighton Speed Trials along the seafront, which has been run in Brighton since 1905.
