    • About Brighton

      An ideal mix between sea and city, as you probably know Brighton is a draw for people from all over.

      Known as ‘London by the sea’, Brighton is fast paced, upbeat and exciting – with a whole heap of bohemia thrown in to give the city its own personal feel. Brighton is well known for its colourful gay scene, and the tolerant and laid back attitude is what gives Brighton such a free-thinking, unconventional atmosphere. 

      Students flock to the city’s academic institutions for their respected learning reputations and exciting location – with over 1,000 drinking spots to be explored. Its famed Royal Pavilion is a strange sight to behold, with the Indian-influenced architecture striking against Brighton’s centre. 

      For shopping, Brighton offers a huge range and you’ll likely get lost in the array of boutiques and record shops in the narrow ‘laines’; where Brighton folk go for the latest underground styles and sounds. 

      The University of Brighton and Sussex University are both highly regarded in almost all areas of research and study, and both hold great links in industry. Students make up over ten percent of Brighton’s eclectic and eccentric population bring yet another young and vibrant influence to the city’s mix.
