Cheap Flights to Brighton

Brighton overview

Also known as “London on Sea,” Brighton is the coolest seaside destination on the South Coast. Popular since Regency times, Brighton’s architecture is particularly appealing, with winding streets (known as “the lanes”), packed full of trendy, arty and eclectic shops and cafés that lead down to the seafront. The hub of the town is Palace Pier, the seafront and its famous pebbled beach.

The Brighton Pavilion is a wondrous affair; it looks like it belongs in some Far Eastern fairytale. It was built by the Prince Regent in 1815, in the style of the Taj Mahal. Visitors can tour the building to see its interiors and gardens.

The liberal attitude that the Prince Regent brought to Brighton lives on today. It is known as the “gay capital” of the UK and the area of Kemptown (along King's Cliff to Black Rock) is full of bars and clubs that fly the rainbow-coloured flag.

Brighton insider information

  • Brighton Pavilion was the Prince Regent’s idea of a good place to host a party. Its interesting towers dominate the town, and when you do the tour you find that it is just as gloriously lavish and over the top on the inside, too.
  • Shop in the Lanes for all kinds of unusual and artistic things. All the chain stores are here, but there are many independent and unusual shops as well. This is a lively place with an active artistic and social life, and the largest gay club scene in England.
  • Buy some Brighton Rock from the Palace Pier. Then walk along the beach and throw pebbles into the sea. There’s no sand and they land with a satisfying splosh.
