The Cosiest WIFI Hotspots in Brighton to Warm and Feed you on Snowy Days

Find wifi cafe in Brighton

The MetOffice warn us of another 5 days of snow and below freezing temperatures. The Brighton bus services are as precarious as the pavements, and you are the only one that actually made it into the office. Time to make the same excuse as everyone else, it's a “snow day”!

But don't hide at home. Instead, head to your nearest cosy café or pub with wifi and work from there. No excuse not to be online, Social Media is definitely not having a snow day. We provide  SEO Training, Email Marketing Training, Google Anlaytics Training and Photoshop Training, in Brighton, Sussex -  just some of the skills you could  learn to  keep you busy when you can't get out.

Here is a list of my favourite free wifi across the centre of Brighton, from Kemp Town to Hove. They all have a great laid back atmosphere that might make you want to stay for longer than planned.

Add The Colour
Bright, open, spacious, very comfortable and flexible, great place for photographers and office meetings. Wonderful coffee and delectable cakes 64-65 North Road, BN1 1YD
Find it here

Kemp Town Bookshop
Independent little gem of a bookshop with a cosy and quiet café on the top floor. Hot drinks, grilled sandwiches and a range of cakes will keep you feeling warm throughout the day.
91 St. George's Road, Kemp Town, BN2 1EE.
