Tucked away inside Brighton’s beloved antique and bric-a-brac store is a photo booth, complete with masks and daft props.

A picture from Snooper’s Paradise is the perfect souvenir to take away from your time in Brighton. The shop is also great for a browse. Find hidden treasures of the past when you’re done posing.

  • How much does it cost? £3
  • How do I pay? Cash only

3. Beyond Retro

If you’re looking for that classic retro-style photo strip, Beyond Retro is the perfect place to go.

Conveniently located in North Laine, it is the only analog photo booth in Brighton and one of the handful of remaining booths of its nature left in the UK. It’s made up of an amalgamation of spare parts of analog models, as they are no longer available.

Beyond Retro is a haven for vintage lovers and the photo booth at the back of the shop completes the experience. Even if you don’t find the perfect piece of clothing, you’ll be sure to depart with a strip of photos from your time there.

4. Patterns

Sooo what.. we had fun 📸#photobooth #whendidthishappen

A relatively new Brighton venue, opened in 2015, Patterns consists of three floors where you can dine, dance and drink until the early hours. The best part? It’s just a few metres from the seafront.

As you walk into the venue, on the left is a photo booth that will provide you with endless hours of fun – it even instructs you on how to pose, in case you’re stuck for ideas.

5. The Black Lion

So thankful for this 💙 #NYE!!✨🥂 #happyfamily #bestofbrighton 🤗

A post shared by Cristina Martín Turiel (@cristinatturiel) on

A popular spot amongst locals in Brighton, this pub is in the middle of The Lanes but is a bit of a hidden gem if you’re from out of town.

Bustling foodie pub by day and happening music venue by night, there’s more to The Black Lion than just the photo booth in the corner. Be prepared to queue though, it can often get busy in the evenings.

  • How much does it cost? £2
  • How do I pay? Cash only

6. Hobgoblin

Not far from the centre of Brighton is the London Road area. Located within that area is Hobgoblin. The pub is popular with students and locals and offers cheap drinks, a great atmosphere and an excellent beer garden.

Hobgoblin’s photo booth is a relatively new addition and features a colourful backing and wide booth space that is great for groups.

  • How do I pay? Cash only

7. The Mesmerist

Situated in The Lanes, The Mesmerist is a unique spot that offers something different and it’s a promise they certainly deliver on. From cocktail master classes to private events and live music, there’s something for everyone here.

Make sure you pop into the photo booth for a quick snap with friends, family or even the person you’re on a date with before leaving.

8. The Tempest Inn

The Tempest Inn is one of Brighton’s best seafood establishments. Vibrant, friendly and serving up some of the finest dishes in Brighton, this seafront eatery is an ideal place to add to your Brighton itinerary.

After you’ve finished off your fish, sneak off to the photo booth for a quick snap to remember your time in Brighton.

9. Brighton Music Hall


A post shared by Chloe Hadley (@chloehadley217) on

A pebble’s throw from the beach is Brighton Music Hall and often you’ll hear it before you see it. This seafront live music venue is set in the Victorian arches along the beach and is the best way to catch live music whilst also enjoying the beachfront views.

Pile in the photo booth between performances and grab a souvenir to take home. What’s more memorable than a photo booth print out anyway?
