January. Traditionally, the month the modern human retreats to their home to hibernate for the month, surviving on a ‘healthy’ (i.e. non-alcoholic) diet. Several intermittent and unedifying trips to the gym, concealed by darkness, the only evidence of life outside work commitments are a vain attempt to ‘detox’, ‘kick-start the year’ or any other such bland banality. Basically, January has always been used for the mind, body and wallet to recover from the outrageous excesses of the Christmas festivities.
After the stressful and tiring highs of December living, SAD (seasonal affective disorder) can really kick in and make January more about survival. But it does not need to be that way! Why not hop on the train to a place voted as one of the happiest in the UK, Brighton, for a weekend full of winter sun and fun to blast those January blues away? With easy access by car and fast and frequent service by train from London, the restorative air of the south coast is on the capitals doorstep, and with it comes a host of other fun activities to bring you health and wellness for the New Year.
What better way to enjoy the charm of Brighton than by staying right in the heart of the city, at the Queens Hotel & Spa. January is always tough on the finances, so why not exploit the Brighton hotel deals we have for you and take a easy, fun and cheap weekend away to ‘Brighton’ up your January (sorry!). Located on the seafront, close to all the fabulous amenities on offer, the Queens hotel could not be more ideally placed. Enjoy a trip to the lanes to catch some last bargains in the sales, just 5 minutes’ walk away, or take a stroll along the beach or Marine Parade and breathe in that wonderful sea air. The beach is literally a stone’s throw away and our sea view rooms allow the perfect aspect to it and the shimmering sea beyond.
Book one of our Brighton hotel deals and in just one hour you could be on the sunny south coast from London Victoria. For those that travel light, the Queen’s hotel is a short 15 minute walk from the Rail station or a 5 minute taxi ride for those dressed more for the bar than the beach. If travelling by car, or even bicycle, the picturesque South Downs national park surrounds the city and is easily accessible. Burn off some of those Christmas calories during the day before heading back into Brighton for a restorative evening in one of the many fabulous bars and restaurants the city has to offer.
Enjoy one of the many museums or live music venues for which the city is famous, not forgetting the unforgettable Brighton Pavilion, and make a weekend of it by exploiting the Brighton hotel deals we have on offer. For young families the Pier, Sealife centre and the world’s oldest electric railway located conveniently along the seafront offer entertainment and distractions in abundance. Our bike friendly city allows safe and easy riding for the whole family, and what kid doesn’t enjoy a fish and chips followed by ice cream for dinner, even if there is ice in the cone and on the street!
Maybe you just want to get away from it all for a couple of days. Brighton has long been known as a place for rest and recuperation and to ‘take the cure’. Instead of the traditional dip in the sea, why not enjoy the infinitely warmer and inviting atmosphere of our very own luxury Spa for a weekend of pure relaxation and pampering. We offer a large range of treatments from message and facials to mani/pedicures.
Whatever 2018 is set to bring, start the year as you mean to go on and take a trip to Brighton to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city. Everything and nothing is available to you to get you through the dark January days. Be sure to check out our Brighton hotel deals and see us very soon!
