Hemmed in by the South Downs, Brighton & Hove is a diverse and vibrant coastal city. It’s an incredibly laid back and fun place to reside in, live nearby or visit. It’s full of life all year round and has been a constant source of inspiration for residents, visitors and a whole raft of artists throughout its existence. It’s widely reported that Brighton succeeds as a modern city because it was built on the principle of pleasure rather than industry.
Whilst cities such as London, Manchester and Birmingham thrive on their industrial heritage, Brighton relied upon the healing properties of the sea during Queen Victoria’s reign and has continued to thrive as a premier pleasure destination.
As per every city, Brighton doesn’t satisfy all and has its fair share of detractors. This group aims to celebrate the good, bad and fabulous that Brighton has to offer.
