This playful seaside town is known as ‘London-by-the-sea’.

Brighton, England


  • If you’re looking for a day trip from London, Brighton is a good bet.
  • Fashionable, fun and packed with style, Brighton has everything you could want from a trip to the seaside – a royal palace, elegant architecture, great museums, laid-back beach life and superb shopping.
  • Reaching out into the sea from the dazzling seafront is the famous Brighton Pier. Expect amusements, rides, and all kinds of fun - not to mention gorgeous sea views.
  • Colorful shopping streets, known as The Lanes, are awash with vintage gear, antiques and jewelry, all brought together around a historic network of narrow city streets.
  • Nearby, you’ll find the South Downs National Park, home to the dramatic Seven Sisters cliffs and some of southern England’s most charming villages.
  • You’ll find all this just 1 hour from central London by train.
