    Weekend Trips

    Most of our activities have trips away, in the UK and overseas.


Welcome to BEC (and our brand new website)

The Brighton Explorers Club is a multi-activity outdoors club based in Brighton, on the sunny south coast. We do a wide variety of activities including rock climbingroad cyclingmountain biking, walking, caving, kayaking, windsurfing, badminton, tennis, coasteering and surfing.

We welcome all levels including beginners, but generally we don’t offer instruction. We are an over 18’s only club, so unfortunately can’t accept minors on any of our activities or events. BEC is keen to encourage and support all members and especially younger members (18-30) to get into the outdoors.

Climbing, cycling, mountain biking and badminton happen every week all year round, kayaking, walkingtennis & windsurfing happen every week during the summer months.

We have regular weekend trips throughout the year, both locally, nationally and overseas.

BEC also runs regular social activities, be it a Bar-B-Que on the beach or a night at a local pub. We have strong links with Brighton Sailing Club (http://www.brightonsc.org.uk/) and have use of their bar/clubhouse/changing facilities on the sea front.

You must be a BEC member to take part in any of our activties, so if you would like to join then please click on the join here link or for further information either visit our contact page and send us a message, or come along to our new members night on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

I look forward to hearing from you soon
