Vibrant City, Seaside, Coastline, Countryside

Brighton is a wonderful mix of Georgian charm, classy restaurants, upmarket shops, bohemian streets, culture and arts which has made it a safe and popular choice for tourists and students alike.

Brighton’s famous landmark, the exotic Royal Pavilion, sets the tone for the city, being extravagant, ostentatious and a complete joy of colour and art. Beyond the Pavilion you can discover Old Brighton in the Lanes, a twisty section of narrow streets that contain antique shops, designer outlets, restaurants and bars.

The North Laine is the heart of bohemian Brighton with its eclectic mix of shops selling everything from bric-a-brac and New Age to second-hand records. It’s also a great place to grab a drink and snack in the funky cafes and coffee shops.

Popular seaside holiday location

Situated on the South Coast of England, Brighton is a popular coastal location in the UK with a pebble beach. With a famous Pier that’s packed full of amusements and lots of seaside shops selling buckets & spades, hats and rock, you can truly get the English seaside experience.

Countryside, National Park & Day Trips to London

Beyond the town is the newly created South Downs National Park, stretching for 90 miles along the coast. Perfect for walkers, cycling or just a pleasant afternoon stroll.

Brighton & Hove Albion, the Championship Football Club, is based on the edge of the city and a tour of the ground is a favourite with many students.

Brighton is also just a short train, coach or car journey from London (about an hour) which makes it a great base for day trips to the capital.
