Brighton

Bohemian, hedonistic and colourful, Brighton is a city that has it all, from laid-back beach living to legendary nightlife on the UK’s biggest gay scene.

Cute and quirky, Brighton may seem like a typical British seaside resort, but delve below the surface and you’ll discover vintage shopping, mouth-watering cuisine and epic nightlife that’s the envy of much larger cities.

Explore the Victorian history and modern-day delights of Brighton Palace Pier, get your shop on in the winding streets and boho boutiques of The Lanes, or experience a bird’s eye perspective of the coastline from 450ft above the ground, on British Airways i360.
