Brighton

Iconic Brighton is loud and proud. This super-cool south coast town has pebble beaches to be seen on, kitsch boutique shopping and palatial architectural gems. Regency monuments vie for space, from chalky white pavilions with onion domes to regal theatres and clock towers. You can see why cults have been born in this East Sussex town. Follow film noir to the pier for scenes from Brighton Rock, or wander The Lanes to a soundtrack from Quadrophenia. Seafarers can yacht, kayak and powerboat from the marina, while bikers and hikers head inland to the tracks and bridleways over the rolling South Downs.
