Mixing vintage with a modern touch, Brighton is a city that is known for its charm and open-mindedness. Safe yet fun, the city offers parks, parties, and people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. It also offers many options for whatever your budget might be. The very cosmopolitan city is the birth place of Passenger, a very famous and popular singer, and Vivien Leigh (played Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone with the Wind”!). It is also home to the ever-trendy and admired Brighton Fringe arts festival.

Then we have the Brighton beachfront; this area of the city features the Brighton wheel, showing you all angles of the city and its picturesque waterfront. The zone is also the gateway to Hove, another popular tourist destination that was originally a fishing village before becoming a chic vacation spot.

The Brighton Marina is another curiosity of the infamous city: its 2,000 yacht capacity will leave you wide-eyed and amazed. There is a great shopping center here as well, with a myriad of restaurants and bars for your leisure and entertainment.

And why not partake in a 90-minute walking tour of the city? This distinctive journey through the city streets will explain the city’s history, landmarks, and other important points of interest, as well as explain more about the colorful history of the acclaimed cosmopolitan city.

Whether it is art or music, the city of Brighton offers almost anything you can imagine, with surprises down every street. One minute you walk down an abandoned, empty street, and then you might suddenly see a man and a piano! The diverse nature of the city will leave you feeling entertained every step of the way: from the green zones, to a vibrant student body from all over the world, to an effervescent nightlife, you won’t be disappointed or bored.
