Brighton travel guide

Brighton - Fashionable, funky and minutes from London

Learn everything about Brighton from its historic landmarks like Brighton Pier and the Royal Pavilion to its unique blend of traditional and modern culture.

Brighton is more than the seaside, more than the city and the mix is more than double the fun. Fashionable, funky and loaded with style, Brighton & Hove has everything you could want from a trip to Britain - a royal palace, elegant Regency architecture, museums with more, laid-back beach life and superb shopping – all this on the south coast of England, just 49 minutes from central London.

Kultur & Geschichte

Walking around Brighton, 400 years of history and style unfold before you. The Royal Pavilion is the magnificent palace created by King George IV, and is an eclectic mix of styles that has to be seen to be believed. Elsewhere, there are museums and galleries galore, special events throughout the year from car rallies to carnivals, and England’s largest arts festival in May.


Don’t miss the Royal Pavilion, home of King George IV, and probably the most exotic, extravagant royal palace in Europe. Stroll along the Victorian Pier and the beachfront, where stylish bars and cafés spill out onto the curved paving, jostling for space with surfer shops, giant sculptures, buskers, fresh fish and artists’ studios.
