Tucked away on the south coast of England, Brighton is one of Britain’s most popular seaside towns. From the bustling Brighton Pier with its arcades, mini-roller coaster, fireworks and striking views of the coastline to the numerous festivals, shopping outlets, museums, unique landmarks and thriving nightlife spots, there is always something exciting happening in town. Visitors should also not forget the beautiful beaches.
It’s no doubt the diversity of attractions in Brighton that draws people year after year. Those with a taste for history and architecture will want to stop by the spectacular Brighton Royal Pavilion. With its Chinese-influenced decoration and Indian-style exterior, it is a stunning sight. Other stunning sights include Beachy Head and Devil’s Dyke, offering spectacular panoramic views of the coastline and surrounding countryside.
Brighton city center is also home to numerous museums. Most notable are the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, which houses an important collection of early 20th-century ceramics, furniture, toys and artwork, and Brighton’s Booth Museum of Natural History, where visitors are treated to a multitude of exhibits and displays including more than half a million specimens and dinosaur skeletons.

On the more eclectic side are the Museum of Penny Slot Machines, with a fine display of vintage machines (some dating back more than 100 years), the Brighton Toy and Model Museum and the Brighton Fishing Museum, a true tribute to Brighton’s historic ties to the sea.
