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.

The advent of the railway 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.

February in Brighton is often the coldest month with an average daytime minimum of 1.9 °C which is a degree higher than the UK average. The relatively mild winters can be attributed to Brighton's close proximity to the sea. Similarly, air frost is lower in Brighton than national figures during winter. The highest number of days when an air frost forms is typically in February. January has the joint highest number of 'rain days' with November at 12.7.

Temperatures climb steadily from an average maximum of 10 °C in March to approaching 16 °C in May. Although rare it is not unheard of for air frost to occur in May. Rainfall is quite low in Brighton all year round. During spring the most rain usually falls in March. Rainfall accumulation and days of rain are slightly higher in spring than summer though.

August is the warmest month in Brighton with an average maximum of 20.8 °C. Heat waves are usually accompanied by warm nights. The UK record for a minimum temperature overnight was set in Brighton. It was 23.9 °C on 4th August 1990. For Brighton, summer is the driest time of the year. On average around 45.1 mm of rainfall is recorded in July making it the driest month.

Mild temperatures generally last until October, where highs of 15 °C are likely. Air frost days are predominately from November onwards although there are sometimes a few in October. Rainfall accumulation is highest in autumn than any other season, and October in particular typically sees the peak concentration.

All climate data based on Shoreham, 1981 - 2010.
