Our Social Programme in Brighton

ELC organises a full programme of weekend excursions and afternoon and evening social activities. There is something to do or see every day of the week. Activities are organised on a 'pay as you go' basis. 

This week's social programme

Social Activities

We offer a wide range of afternoon and evening activities including sports, local visits, conversation club, film evenings and quizzes. A small charge of £3-10 is made for most activities but there are always some free activities like Conversation Club every week.  

Local tours during your stay at ELC may include:

  • Lewes and Arundel, historic towns each with its own castle and ancient town buildings
  • the beautiful village of Rottingdean where you can enjoy a traditional cream tea
  • local beauty spots such as Devil's Dyke, with its breath-taking views of the Sussex countryside, or the dramatic cliff tops of Beachy Head

Local tours typically cost £6-15. Entry fees are normally extra.
