About Brighton & Hove
Brighton & Hove is one of the most vibrant, colourful and creative cities in Europe.
Compact, unique, fun, lively, historic, young and free-spirited, it's a great place to visit, live, work & study in.
Under an hour from London, Brighton is located on England's south coast, between the stunning South Downs and the English Channel. Often voted the happiest place in the UK, the city offers a fantastic mix of Regency heritage, fabulous shopping, funky arts and music, beachfront cool and year round festivals and events.
There’s something about the atmosphere in Brighton.
Ever since Dr Russell recommended Brighton in 1750 for its rejuvenative qualities, people have flocked to the city to feel the energising effects of the sea and invigorating fresh air sweeping off the English Channel.
A city constantly on the move...
And with such a vibrant community of writers, musicians, artists and ‘foodies’ in the city, there's also a heady buzz of creativity that keeps the city constantly moving.
The city is compact too; so it’s easy to find your way around on foot and get from A to B with little hassle.
