Today: As the clocks go back, make the most of the extra hour in Brighton and Hove. The city is staging its annual White Night tonight, so expect seminars in cafes, interactive art and late-night film screenings ( whitenightnuitblanche.com).
This week: It's your last chance to enter The Independent Traveller and Wanderlust magazine's Travel Photo of the Year competition. The top prize is a trip to Australia's Northern Territory. Entries must be submitted by Monday 1 November. See wanderlust.co.uk/awards
In the diary: Guarantee yourself a white Christmas by booking into the Ice Hotel in Romania, which reopens in the Fagaras Mountains on 25 December. Accessible only by cable car, the four ice rooms overlook Balea Lake ( icehotelromania.com), which, at an altitude of 2,034m, is the country's highest glacier lake.
