England

Brighton

Brighton is a lively seaside city on England’s south coast, an hour by train from London. It grew to prominence in the late eighteenth century when it was a popular destination for members of the royal family.  Today the city remains popular with day-trippers from London who come to enjoy its seven miles of beaches, pubs, and nightlife. Brighton is also home to a thriving gay community. In recent years the city has flourished, giving rise to stylish boutiques and restaurants, festivals, music, and a vibrant arts scene.
