London-by-the-Sea

Once a sleepy little fishing village, Brighton is a modern seaside town known for its Asian architecture and a large gay community. Nicknamed London-by-the-Sea, the town has become a favorite leisure spot for wealthy Londoners. During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends, this can be a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas. For this reason, the city is best accessed by train, and most easily explored on foot or by bicycle. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Brighton and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Brighton

During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends Brighton is a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas most frequented by tourists. Avoid getting stressed out by staying at a self-catering apartment or a private B&B farther away from this part of town. Brighton's famous nightlife may be a bit far from there, but you can still enjoy seafront walks, good restaurants, and excellent shopping. Private seafront lodgings allow you to enjoy your stay quietly in comfort, while remaining within walking distance of Brighton's best beaches.
