Brighton, located on England's south coast, is the largest city in the county of Sussex and only an hour's train ride from London. Its combination of traditional seaside fun with a quirky bohemian vibe makes this city a unique destination.
Nestled among the rolling hills of the South Downs, not only was Brighton the first city in the country to have a green member of parliament, but it is also often referred to as the vegetarian capital of England. Brighton is proudly unconventional.
From shopping in the funky North Laine to sitting on Brighton's famous pebble beach and watching the sun sink over the English Channel, the city offers a diversity of attractions to appeal to everyone.
Brighton's nightlife is legendary and all-encompassing, with the largest LGBTQ scene in the south. Theatre, comedy and live music are on tap every night of the week and the city hosts a three-week multi-arts festival every May.
A popular day-trip or weekend jaunt from the capital, for those who have time, it's worth lingering a little longer to take in all that this exciting city by the sea has to offer.
