Brighton, a seaside resort on the south coast of England
Bringhton first found popularity as a tourist destination in the 18th and 19th centuries, when it had the cachet of being the weekend getaway for the Prince Regent- and it has beeb known as a fun, flirty seaside town ever since. It has long had a reputation as a progressive, bohemian haven, with its thriving LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community and a population of students and artists. Here is what do to there.
Visit the Royal Pavilion
In the mid-1780s, George IV-notorious as an extravagant womaniser-built the Marine Pavilion as his seaside home, despite being laden with debt. The exterior has Indian influences while its interior is luxuriously furnished with Chinese objects and hand painted wallpaper.
Take a walk on the Devils Dyke
Bringhton may be very famous for its beaches, but the city also borders the South Down National Park. It s called Devils Dyke because locals belived that Satan dug the trench in attempt to flood Sussex and destroy its churches. The South Downs are steeped in folklore. Part of the joy of the Devils Dyke is getting there. From April to September, there is a special open-top bus services laid on from the city centre to the Downs.
Hobble across the beach
If you are hankering to plunge your toes ito the sand, Brighton is not the place for you. The pebbled beach is a little unforgiving on the feet and the water is never, ever warm. Still that doesn t stop millions of people visiting each year. Beneath the turquoise railings of the Victorian promenade are restaurants, bars and pubs, as well as quirky independent shops to pick up unique knick-knacks and souvenirs.
