BRIGHTON - AT A GLANCE

  • Brighton is bursting with attractions: an outlandish Royal Palace, interesting museums, a beautiful beach, superb shopping and late-night pubs and clubs.
  • Stretching out into the sea is the iconic, neon-lit Brighton Pier. Expect amusements, rides and invigorating ocean views.
