Brighton on the south coast on England is a popular seaside destination known as "˜London by the Sea". The history behind the name comes from the 18th century when George VI enjoyed to party in Brighton. London's elite followed his path and made Brighton into a fashionable place to be. The town has plenty of Victorian architecture remaining, including the Royal Pavilion which is worth a visit.
Brighton today is still a popular seaside destination, with its amusement parks and piers. The stretch between the 2 piers is full of entertainment with restaurants, bars, arcades and night clubs. Away from the promenade there are more attractions, including shopping in the many clothing stores, jewelers and antique shops. Visit the museums, the large marina and outdoor sports centre.

Business is also important to Brighton. High-tech media companies have recently set up in the city, it also attracts many business people for conferences as it houses a large number of hotels and facilities.

The town itself has an adequate bus service and plenty of taxis to choose from to get around. To make the distance along the seafront you can use the electric railway, which is apparently the oldest in the world. A new addition to the local transport is the tuc-tuc, a motorised trishaw from Asia, this is a fun way to travel.


The weather is at its best during the summer months of July and August. You are more likely to experience some warm, dry weather. However, this cannot be guaranteed as British weather is notoriously unpredictable. Take your rain coat just in case.
