Rule Brighton-ia Brighton-ia rules the waves!
Welcome to Brighton – the UK’s craziest seaside town. Enormous fun, slightly mad and a little bit sleazy, Brighton is a place where everyone is welcome. You could walk around Brighton wearing a tutu, string vest and army boots with cream crackers stuck to your head and nobody would bat an eyelid. In fact there’s probably already a support group to cater to your specific needs. Indeed, on the main route into Brighton a monument includes the welcoming words:
HAIL GUEST • WE ASK NOT WHAT THOU ART.
IF FRIEND. WE GREET THEE. HAND & HEART:
IF STRANGER. SUCH NO LONGER BE:
IF FOE. OUR LOVE SHALL CONQUER THEE.
Stag and hen parties flood the streets in search of fun – Brighton truly is a great party town. And every year the whole place erupts in a burst of rainbow colours and fun for Brighton Pride. Then there is the Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe when for a whole month the streets ring with the sounds of music and laughter. On another musical theme, The Great Escape festival offers a chance to see the best new bands perform in venues across the city.
But Brighton is far more than just a place to come and party. With its stunning regency buildings, museums, the Brighton Pavilion, shady parks, i360 and so much more, you could spend weeks exploring and never see it all. And those in the know will make sure to wander along a twitten or two! If all that sightseeing makes you hungry and thirsty you can satiate yourself on one of the hundreds of cafés, restaurants and bars.
