Brighton Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryFrom fishing village origins, ‘Bright-helmstone’ keeps reinventing itself. The Prince Regent came for the sea-bathing treatment (and Mrs Fitzherbert), built the exotic Indo/Chinese Royal Pavilion, and gave the town a slightly raffish image it has never tried to shake off. The twenties and thirties, and the Brighton Belle train, saw its rise as an illicit weekend destination, while more recently a student/’alternative’ population has restored its Bohemian feel. The first ‘Chain Pier’ was swept away in a storm, the elegant West Pier was ravaged by fire, but the gaudy Palace Pier still entices day-trippers. The Brighton Festival offers a counterbalance for lovers of more serious arts however.
