Firstly, welcome to Brighton!
Brighton is definitely one of the most vibrant and colourful cities in the UK. You might have been drawn here to visit the huge Brighton Pride festival we host every year, to study at one of our great Universities, or to follow the crowds flocking to enjoy some sun and ice cream on our iconic pebbled beaches.
You'll probably have heard Brighton labelled the 'Gay Capital of the UK' - we're pretty proud of our relaxed and diverse atmosphere (not just around the LGBT+ community, though if you venture into Kemptown you will see many rainbow flags flying from a host of LGBT+-friendly clubs, bars and pubs), and for voting in the only Green MP in the country for two elections running. We like to be different!
Traditionally, if you're coming down for some sun, sea and sand (read: stones), it will rain, so we've made sure to cover sights and attractions for all weathers. If you're a student or a new resident, this guide is also full of tips, tricks and advice to cover all the essentials of Brighton life.
Even before the Prince Regent turned a two-up, two-down house where he hid his mistress into a Kublai Kahn inspired, Taj-Mahal-esque palace (no joke), Brighton had a reputation as a town of leisure. You certainly won't be lacking for things to see and do! Click here for a full list!
