Going on a girls holiday to Brighton is extremely popular, especially as an alternative to the traditional hen night before a member of the party is to get married. Unfortunately, that girls holiday to Brighton can all too easily turn from a dream trip into a nightmare.
Dangers of a girls holiday to Brighton
Having fun on the beach or when going out at night during a girls holiday to Brighton is all very well, but unless you are careful, personal injuries, shame and even an arrest could easily turn that fun into horror. Here are some of the risks you may face:
- Sunburn: Seaside sun can burn you quite severely even on an overcast day, so make sure every member of your party is adequately protected by high-factor sun screens at all times
- Slips, trips and falls: Injuries by slipping, tripping or falling can happen easily, especially after a drink or two, so make sure you keep your intake of alcohol reasonable and look out for slip, trip and fall hazards
- Sex: Fun-filled nights out and plenty of drink could result in one or more members of your party getting closer to locals or other tourists than they would normally dare. If such holiday romances go further than holding hands or a quick kiss, make sure unwanted pregnancies or unpleasant sexually transmitted diseases are prevented by wearing protection. Better still, look out for one another and stop things going too far in the first place. Staying together and watching each others drinks to prevent ‘spiking’ will also help to prevent sexual assaults.
- Arrests: Excessive drinking may lead to rowdy behaviour that could ultimately lead to one or more of you being arrested, so again, keep drinking within reason.
When things go bad
Even when you are on your best behaviour, accidents in Brighton can and will happen. You could, for instance, be injured by a trip, slip or fall in your hotel, a café or a bar at night. If such an accidental injury was caused by someone else, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation.
