Brighton, England

Brighton, England isn’t exotic, but you will have a good time if you don’t mind not having the Mediterranean climate, or Latin America’s warm almost all year-round weather. Brighton has a long history to share!

Brighton's location has made it a popular destination for tourists, renowned for its diverse communities, shopping areas, large and vibrant cultural, music and arts scene, and its large LGBT population, leading to its recognition as the "unofficial gay capital of the UK" and as of the 2021 census, 10.7% of the population of Brighton and Hove over the age of 18 identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the highest percentage in the entire UK.


Are you getting the vibes to hang out in this seaside resort, so diversified it just makes you want to book your trip immediately. Brighton is located on England's South Coast in the county of East Sussex. It's only an hour away from Central London by train and 30 minutes from London Gatwick, one of the UK's major international airports.


Brighton is jam-packed with fun and interesting places to visit. Places that will take you up in the sky, down below ground, back in time and flying through the air at a heart-racing pace. Intrigued? Read on to find out which of Brighton’s fabulous attractions might take your fancy. 


The Royal Pavilion is one of Brighton's most famous landmarks, and its original owner is largely responsible for putting Brighton on the map, so to speak! The iconic eastern-influenced palace was built in the late 18th Century as a seaside resort by the prince Regent, who later became King George IV.


Right next to the Royal Pavilion is Brighton Museum & Art Gallery where you can see a permanent collection of art and design exhibits alongside new and changing exhibitions, and learn about the history of Brighton from its origins as a fishing village (before George IV made it fashionable) to how it was bombed and evacuated during World War II.


On the seafront you’ll find Sea Life Brighton. It’s easy to forget that it’s the world’s oldest operating aquarium when you’re standing in a glass tunnel watching sharks and turtles swim over your head!


No visit to Brighton is complete without a visit to Brighton Palace Pier. The Pier offers fun for everyone, from hair-raising rides, arcade games and traditional fairground favorites such as Hook a Duck and Tin Can Alley, to wining and dining while gazing out to sea.


Have a great day!
