Stay up late in Brighton and Hove. The seaside Sussex city marks the end of British summer time with a White Night – the all-night, free arts festival takes place in cultural venues, eateries, open spaces and streets (whitenightnuitblanche.com). Across the Channel, Jersey is staging a beach art competition over the weekend (jerseybeachart.com).
Check into the new Hotel Williamsburg in Brooklyn, which adds much-wanted style to the hipster neighbourhood's hotel scene (hwbrooklyn.com). Meanwhile, Ryanair launches flights from Stansted to the German city of Leipzig on Wednesday (ryanair.com).
