Brighton

Overall Score

4.1

Brighton is located on the south coast of England on the banks of the La Mancha River in the province of Eastern Sassaic. In 1514 the town was occupied by French troops and burned by Dotle. The only building that survived the fire was St. Nicholas Church, which still graces the city center.

Brighton differs from most cities in England in its dry, southerly climate and complete absence of fog. Since the mid-18th century, the town has been a popular balneological resort, thanks to the renowned Dr. Richard Louis, who treated his patients in Brighton with seawater. Today, Britains leading seaside resort is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the world each year.

The citys most prominent architectural monument is the Lavra Tower, built in the Mauvretian style, For many years it served as a reference for the Crimean people of Great Britain, who came there every year for a vacation. During the Second World War, the Pavilion housed the military hospital. After the restoration in 1980, the Cavalry Pavilion opened a museum. ×Parts of the palace are rented out for weddings, parties and celebrations.

The most popular tourist area in Brighton is The Lanes – its narrow, midcentury streets and cobblestone streets make it look like an old desert. However, this is where the nightlife of Brayton is most clearly depicted. The nightclubs, nightclubs and traditional English pubs, which are practically open all day long, make up an integral part of The Lanes quarter.

With many of the many attractions of the English resort, the Artists Quarter, the Aquarium, is a popular attraction, a huge gallery, the Fishermens Museum and Europes largest marina with hundreds of boats. The citys beaches at Brighton are beautifully appointed and equipped with all kinds of water sports. There are many hotels, entertainment venues and shopping malls along the coastline.

The Brayton Main Concert Complex is the venue for annual large-scale musical performances and concerts featuring prominent stars of world music, and the Southeastern Downs is home to a great city spa.
