The coastal city of Brighton offers visitors a mixture of cosmopolitan atmosphere, vibrant nightlife and seaside relaxation.  

One of the city’s most popular and iconic attractions is the Royal Pavilion. Built as a palace for the Prince Regent during the early 19th century, under the direction of the renowned English architect John Nash, the palace is notable for its Indo-Gothic architecture and oriental interior.

Brighton has been voted as one of the Top 10 city beach break destinations in the world. The beach is popular with visitors, for those who like to be more active there are water sports such as paddle-boarding and stand-up kayaking; typical beach sports such as Frisbee and volleyball and with the vast seafront, swimming or paddling are always options. Also, a trip to the beach is not complete without a trip to the iconic Brighton Pier, which is the only Grade II listed pier in the country, followed by a visit to Sea Life Brighton Centre.

In addition to the beach, Brighton is also home to a multitude of parks and green spaces that provide visitors with some peace. Preston Park is home to the Preston Twins, which are believed to be the oldest Elm trees in the country. Hove’s St Ann’s Well Gardens is great for tree lovers and Stanmer Park is home to the eco EarthShip as well as Stanmer House for refreshments. 

Bognor Regis and Worthing are two seaside resort towns developed in the 19th century in keeping with the newfound interest in seaside holidaymaking. Today both locations offer a taste of the sea air, expansive beaches and great fish and chips.
