Often referred to as London-by-the-sea, as well as being under an hour via rail to the capital, these is clearly a lot to Brighton that is highly desirable! Thanks to its compact city centre, the best way to manoeuvre Brighton’s busy streets is on foot, which is certainly the most interesting way to get around too, making for a beautiful stroll around the famous lanes. As well as the lanes, Brighton is famous for its stunning beach, which is certainly a tourist spot come summertime. You can sit on the pebbles with an ice cream, go for a stroll down the Palace Pier, or even take a swim around the old West Pier, an iconic landmark in the city.  

As well as the landmarks, Brighton is famous for being a hugely welcoming and accepting city, there is no way anyone could feel out of place thanks to its vastly diverse culture, you will find people from all walks of life in this city. Just outside of the city lies the South Downs, with plenty of scenery and wildlife available to explore, highlights include Devils Dyke and Ditchling Beacon, which offer a stunning respite from city life.
