East Sussex boasts some spectacular countryside and a number of pretty and historic towns and villages. However, the main draw for visitors lies on the south coast, in Brighton and Hove. The diverse town offers a breadth of attractions for tourists, as well as ample opportunities and facilities for professional visitors. The Brighton and Hove Greyhound Stadium, near Hove Park, ticks both boxes. There are also plenty of great hotels and bed and breakfasts in the local area.
Brighton and Hove Greyhound Stadium
Brighton and Hove Greyhound Stadium draws in big crowds several times a week, made up of a mix of locals and tourists. With photo-finishes and video replays, the modern stadium is an excellent place to catch this increasingly rare sport live.
The 2,200 capacity stadium is packed with facilities, making it a great day out. In addition to the Skyline Restaurant, there's a pair of fast food outlets and five licensed bars on the site. As you'd expect, there's also a betting shop inside the stadium.
A health and fitness club has been incorporated into the stadium, offering visitors the chance to stay in shape. With ample parking and disabled facilities, access couldn't be easier.
Private Functions at the Stadium
It's not only the racing which attracts visitors to the Brighton and Hove Greyhound Stadium. The sizeable function room also make it an appealing venue for private functions, from corporate events and seminars to weddings and private birthday parties. The function room has space for up to 200 guests, with a late licence and various catering options.
