The Centurion, Plum Guide home in Brighton, UK

Click to book The Centurion now: from £190 per night A town of unique architecture, brisk sea air, two iconic piers, quirky shops, and a truly embracing culture, Brighton is one of the most exciting and charming places to visit in the UK. Even more so, when you're staying in a beautiful, 100-year-old Art Deco building close to the seafront. While the building retains many of its 1920s features, this flat is wholly modern, decked out in stylish, contemporary decor. Relax in the stylish living room or gather together for a celebratory meal in the dining area. Step through the main room's glass door and onto a private, south-facing balcony - ideal for sipping on a sundowner cocktail and looking out to sea before an evening out on the town. With two extremely comfortable bedrooms - each boasting a king-size bed - and a bathroom with a large tub, this is a perfect base for a relaxing stay in Southern England’s most vibrant seaside city. The famous Brighton pebble beach is a short two-minute stroll away and the independent shops on North Laine are walkable in ten. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Click to book The Vines now: from £180 per night Set in a modern building on a more traditional street, The Vines stands out in more ways the one. Helen’s hosting is really impressive, and the care that she’s put into the interior design here is obvious from the get-go. The surrounding area, known as North Laine, is a hub of independent artists, curiosity shops and cafes, so staying here really feels like you are experiencing the ‘real’ Brighton. It’s also very central, so not only does that make getting around very simple, but it’s also very easy to reach from London. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Vanity Flair

Vanity Flair, Plum Guide home in East Sussex, UK

Click to book Vanity Flair now: from £750 per night The elegance of this five-storey townhouse along Brighton’s fashionable Portland Place evokes the glamour of the Regency era. It’s been immaculately restored, and the giant sash windows, wrought-iron balconies, soaring ceilings and marble fireplaces feel rightfully opulent. Yet this 200-year-old home is also a place of 21st-century tech. In the basement you’ll find a home cinema with 2.5-metre screen and Dolby Digital surround sound for brilliant nights in. Add to this the plush velvet sofas, cloud-like beds, roll-top baths and a sparkling kitchen finished in white marble (one of two kitchens in fact), and this home feels extremely indulgent. Families and friends will love it here, and since all beds are split kings, the sleeping arrangements are flexible. Located in fashionable Kemp Village, a pebble’s throw from Brighton Beach, the home is also excellently placed for eating out, drinking and exploring. In just 15 minutes you could be licking ice creams on Brighton’s pier or admiring more Regency architecture in town. Sleeps up to 16 | 5 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
