Your Holiday Centre
Brighton is without doubt Britain's most colourful and outrageous city. Here burlesque meets contemporary design. Brighton's location has made it a popular destination for tourists, renowned for its diverse communities, quirky shopping areas, large cultural, music and arts scene.
Brighton attracted 7.5 million day visitors in 2015/16, and is the most popular seaside destination in the UK for overseas tourists. It has also been called 'The happiest place to live in the UK'. The town also developed in popularity as a health resort for sea bathing as a purported cure for illnesses.
The highlight is the Royal Pavilion, a 19th-century palace built by the Prince Regent, later King George IV, who spent much time in the town and constructed the Royal Pavilion.
Brighton continued to grow as a major centre of tourism following the arrival of the railways in 1841, becoming a popular destination for day-trippers from London. Many of the major attractions were built in the Victorian era, including the Grand Hotel, the West Pier, and the Brighton Palace Pier. The town continued to grow into the 20th century, expanding to incorporate more areas into the town's boundaries before joining the town of Hove to form the unitary authority of Brighton and Hove in 1997, which was granted city status in 2000.
