England’s Hip Seaside City
Brighton is a dynamic city on England’s south coast, located only an hour from London but with its own distinct identity. Brighton has been a place that attracts Britain’s elites since it was founded as a resort destination by Victorian royals. Today’s city welcomes a blend of vacationing celebrities, students from three local universities, London trend-setters, bohemian artists and a growing community of surfers.
Brighton’s biggest attraction is its beaches, some of the best in all of Britain. Outside of your English courses in Brighton, head to the city’s pier, an assortment of amusement park rides, shops and restaurants extending over 500 meters from the shore. Go beyond the coastline and Brighton’s urban personality reveals itself. Wander among the quaintly cobbled streets of the Lanes, a trendy shopping area as good as any in London. Taste Brighton’s legendary nightlife after the sun sets by dancing the night away to one of the famous DJs that often come to the city. For some sightseeing, explore the Royal Pavillion, a stately residence that looks more like the Taj Mahal than Westminster Abbey.
