Smooth Hound Offering Travel Deals for Spring Bank Holiday

Smooth Hound is the UK's best choice for booking lodging, and they are running specials for the upcoming bank holiday. Brighton is a great place to visit in late spring. Check out www.smoothhound.co.uk.

May 14, 2009 - PRLog -- Smooth Hound, the UK’s premier website for booking the best hotel deals for travel throughout the UK, is now offering great travel deals to Brighton for the upcoming spring bank holiday on May 25th. A long weekend at the Brighton sea side would be a lovely way to spend the holiday.

Brighton has been a popular destination for holiday makers for nearly 300 years. It became a popular health resort in the 18th Century, when in 1750 Dr. Richard Russell claimed that the sea water was curative and it became a very popular location for the High Society of Britain.

The popularity of Brighton skyrocketed when George, Prince of Wales and later George IV, loved Brighton so much that he decided to make his home here. After this, Brighton underwent an amazing transformation. Once poor villagers began to make money by providing bathing machines for London’s High Society to be able to bathe in the sea water while maintaining the modesty of the day. In fact, many of Brighton’s beaches were segregated by sex to ensure that modesty.

Brighton has two piers, but only one is accessible to the public and has arcade games, fun fairs, and restaurants. The beach also has pubs, clubs, more restaurants and other shops.

One popular event held in May in Brighton each year is called the Royal Escape Race. This yacht race reenacts the flight of Charles II who fled Cromwell’s Roundheads after the battle at Worcester and hid in the fishing village posing as a servant until he could escape to France.

In addition to this there is a lovely arts festival and a number of other fun and exciting events. So when you are planning a trip to the sea side or the spring bank holiday remember that Smooth Hound is your source for low priced accommodations. You can find them at www.smoothhound.co.uk
