Known as “Little London by the sea”, day trips to Brighton are unique and inspiring, as the city is known for its borderless judgement and free spirit.
There are lots of things to to see and do in Brighton. The city has many different areas with different personalities, opening a wide prospect for all its visitors.
Starting from the grand Victorian station at the opening of Brighton’s city centre, you can easily take a stroll towards the busy shopping centre and the town’s high street, with many local cafes and boutiques along the way.
But a much more “Brighton way” of shopping can be found on the old town and its two sets of busy lanes with small and unique cafés, bars and shops. Brighton lanes are a heritage of the town’s history, when it used to be a sleeping fishing village. Over time, Brighton floured and became a sought-after city, thanks to its modern views on life, its vibrant personality and the endless possibilities for every taste. But the Lanes and the North Laine remain a huge part of Brighton life to this day.
Don’t forget one of Brighton’s biggest postcards: the Royal Pavilion. The Indian-style palace is a former royal residence, commissioned by George, Prince of Wales, who became the Prince Regent in 1811. Today, it houses a museum. The Royal Pavilion Garden has a wide variety of plants, and is said to be the only fully restored Regency garden in the UK.
Most Brighton visitors head straight to the beach, which is easily accessible from the station. Brighton beach might be the prime night life in the city, but during the day it is home to the well-known Palace Pier, full of attractions for all ages. There are also the lasting ruins of the previous pier, which are very often photographed. With glorious Georgian homes on the coastline, Brighton beach is the perfect example of the city’s beautiful landscape, creating a peaceful place to relax and people watch and feel as if you are on holiday.
