Brighton is an East Sussex seaside city that became a fashionable seaside resort in the Georgian era and is a day trip from London. It sits between the South Downs to the North and the English Channel to the south.

Brighton has a long shingle beach split into sections by wooden groynes. The main seafront area is between the old derelict West Pier and the Palace Pier. This stretch has a range of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, sports facilities and amusement arcades.

This is a city so has a large section of shops and restaurants that are a short walk from the seafront with the famous Brighton Lanes offering independent shops and boutiques in narrow twisting alleyways.
