Brighton is a vibrant seaside town with a unique atmosphere. Apart from its beach, the most famous landmark in Brighton is the Royal Pavilion, a palace with an Indian-style exterior and Chinese-style interior designed for an eccentric 19th century prince (later King George IV).
Brighton’s seafront is particularly impressive. It has a very long beach (of pebbles, not sand) and a pier with a funfair, so you can ride on a rollercoaster above the sea! Brighton Pier was built in the 19th century
The city also has a fantastic selection of independent shops. The Lanes is a famous part of the city with narrow streets full of pavement cafes, restaurants and shops. Meanwhile, the North Laine is a colourful area with a mix of small, independent and unusual shops. This typifies Brighton’s image as a centre for arts, alternative fashion and alternative lifestyles.
Culturally diverse and full of charm, Brighton is a fantastic seaside resort which you are sure to enjoy visiting.
