Hip, bohemian, artsy, LGBT-friendly and rich with history, Brighton Beach is one of the most outrageous, and most fun, cities in the United Kingdom. Have fish and chips on the beach or grab an ice cream and hit the iconic pier, both great for people watching.
Getting lost in The Lanes, a maze of alleyways in the historic quarter, is a shopper’s delight. Fans of eye-popping architecture will want to beeline for The Royal Pavilion. If you’d prefer something quieter, walk among the famous Seven Sisters chalk cliffs in nearby Birling Gap, or visit quaint and cobblestoned Rye, a haven for artists and (allegedly) one of the UK’s most haunted spots.
