that our hotels and conference venues are

always improving their carbon footprints too.

International Standards for Environmental

Management and many other of our city

venues have won awards for their sustainable

methods of event delivery.

South Downs National

Park

landscapes cover 1,600km2

of breathtaking views and

hidden gems. It’s all just

10 minutes away from

the centre of Brighton!

Brighton has the only

ZERO WASTE

restaurant in the

UK!

Brighton & Lewes Downs

World UNESCO Biosphere Site

The first ever in south-east England, and one

of only a handful worldwide to include a city
