International Prospectus > Brighton & Hove

BRIGHTON & HOVE Brighton is one of Europe’s most vibrant cities and is famous for its elegant historic architecture, exciting nightlife and varied arts and cultural scene. Brighton is located on the south coast of England, less than an hour from London. It offers a unique mixture of beach, city and countryside. It is often described as ‘Little London by the sea’ but unlike the UK’s capital it is stress-free and easy to walk around. Throughout the year you can enjoy many of the festivals and events which take place in the city, explore the surrounding countryside or simply relax on the beach with friends. Bohemian, colourful and creative - Brighton offers something for everyone.
