Architectural grandeur, contemporary style and a laid-back vibe make Brighton one of the most popular places to learn English in England.

Brighton & Hove flourished as a health and bathing resort from the 18th century onwards. The arrival of the railway in 1841 brought day-trippers from London and rapid growth. Today, the conurbation of Brighton & Hove, Worthing and Littlehampton has around half a million inhabitants.

The most famous landmark is the Royal Pavilion, a former royal palace notable for its oriental architecture and interior; the 19th century Palace Pier, home to a funfair, restaurants and arcade halls, and the Brighton Clocktower, built for Queen Victoria's jubilee. Brighton is rich in Georgian, Regency and Victorian architecture: explore the narrow streets of fisherman’s cottages and grand terraces and squares.

See the seafront on the world’s oldest electric railway, which runs along the pebbled beach from the Pier to Brighton Marina, or enjoy fish and chips in newspaper while strolling along the broad promenade with its landscaped gardens and crazy golf. Throughout the year, residents, tourists, university and language students mix and mingle in the beachside bars, cafes, pubs and restaurants in the streets leading back from the sea.

Brighton’s nightlife is legendary, with clubs for all tastes.

Top bands appear at the Brighton Centre, West End shows play at the Theatre Royal, and a programme of world music, opera and ballet runs through the year at the Brighton Dome. The performing and visual arts play a central role in the city. The Brighton Festival and Fringe are the UK’s biggest arts festivals outside Edinburgh, and the city also plays host to the Great Escape, Europe’s leading new music festival. And twice a year 200 local artists open their homes and studios to visitors for Artists Open Houses.

Shoppers and sightseers love the romantic charm of The Lanes, a pedestrian area of narrow passages crammed with craft stores, fashion boutiques, jewellery designers and antique shops.
