About Brighton, England
Located on the south coast of England, Brighton is the liveliest seaside resort in the whole country. A magnet for summer holiday-makers, its pebbled beaches are packed with sunbathers and vibrant seaside bars in high season. You'll find a plethora of hip restaurants, chic hotels, and shops stocking virtually everything line the streets from the ocean to the town.
Hire a car in Brighton and you're just 87km from London, 77km from Portsmouth, and 167km from Dover. With a vibrant gay population and leading-edge club scene, the town has a nightlife to rival anything you'll find in London or Manchester, but it's a perfect destination for families and culture hounds too.
Brighton developed as a health resort during the 18th century, became the Prince Regent's seaside getaway, and became a popular day-trip destination for Londoners when the railway came in 1841. Notwithstanding the development of a cosmopolitan scene, Brighton retains its quirky character. Be prepared to bump into anybody here from celebrities to hippies and drag queens to fishermen. This is city that embraces everybody and combines seedy glitz and urban style with effortless ease.
