Brighton offers an irresistible mixture of kitsch seaside charm and hip hedonism. Its iconic pier is packed with colourful fairground rides and retro amusements, while its expansive pebble beach throngs with happy holidaymakers and laid-back locals whenever the sun pokes its head out.

And its nightlife is legendary, with buzzing bars, pulsing beachfront clubs and one of the UK's largest LGBT scenes.
