There is so much more to Brighton than its city status and its seaside location. Stylish, eclectic, hip and fun, the district that comprises Brighton and Hove is the perfect place to head for the perfect British holiday - historical attractions, fabulous architecture, museums by the bucket load, lovely scenery, great beaches and top end shopping.

Heritage and Culture

As you walk around the city, you are treated to a walk through history - four hundred years of it to be precise. A highlight is the impressively extravagant Royal Pavilion, the grand palace that was built on the orders of King George IV. With a mix of contrasting styles, it is a fascinating place to explore, and has an atmosphere that has to be experience to be believed. The whole city is a mismatch of different styles and reminders of various points throughout the ages, and you can learn more about this in one of the many galleries and museums that Brighton boasts. This is a busy city, and whatever time of year you visit you are guaranteed to find some great events - from carnivals to car rallies, plus, in May, the largest Art’s festival in the whole of the country.

Tradition

The wonderful and well-kept the Victorian Pier is a charming place to take a relaxing stroll and take in the lovely views pout across the open sea. The beachfront itself, with its plethora of cool bars and cosy cafes, and shops selling seaside must-haves (including some great surfer shops) compete for space with street performers and of course the many huge art installations s for which Brighton is famed.

Eating Out

Brighton’s reputation for diversity is well illustrated by the vast choice of cafes and restaurant it offers. There are more than four hundred eateries in the city, catering for every taste. A particularly nice spot to eat is between the two piers on the beachfront - here you can relax with some delicious food and a glass of wine and watch the world go by. This being Brighton, there will always be something to catch your attention. Wherever you choose to eat, you would be foolish to miss a chance to sample to delicious fish and chips from one of the several restaurants that specialise in this seaside favourite.

Shopping

If you love to 'shop ‘til you drop', then Brighton will seem positively heavenly. Within the charming 17th century alleyways that make up the famous ‘Lanes’ you will find everything form great antique stores, quirky and high end fashions and loads of vintage and retro shops. At the weekend markets are held, whilst bargain hunters should head over to the Marina where there are several outlet shops offering designer goods at serious discounts.
