The UK's coolest seaside city
Brighton is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, located on England’s south coast just 50 minutes from Central London. Boasting a wide range of shops, restaurants, culture and nightlife, as well as it's famous beach front, it's easy to see why it's one of the UK's most popular student destinations.
A seaside town
Perhaps the city's most popular attraction, especially during the summer, is its beach. Bustling with restaurants, gift shops and fun fairs, a ferris wheel, ice rink and, of course, the famous Pier, the seafront is popular with visitors of all ages.
For sports fans, the Yellowave Beach Sports complex also offers a variety of different sports facilities, including volleyball, beach football, beach rugby and ultimate frisbee.
After dark, the area is a popular nightspot with some of the country's best club nights taking place in the many bars and clubs located on the sea front and underneath the Victorian arches.
A cosmopolitan student city
With two universities and over 40,000 full-time students, Brighton is an ideal student city. As a result the city offers an excellent public transport network (including 20 bus routes that stop outside Stafford House alone), a huge array of affordable shops and restaurants offering student discount, a vibrant creative community and excellent nightlife.
Each year the city welcomes over 25,000 language students who are well-catered for by an extensive selection of international restaurants and food shops.
Truly Unique Shopping
From large department stores to quirky boutiques, Brighton offers a unique shopping experience. North Laine and ‘the Lanes’ offer well over 400 independent shops, restaurants and cafés, offering everything from antiques to chocolate art and designer cupcakes.
For a grander shopping experience, shoppers should visit Kemp Town with it's elegant Georgian architechure and village feel, or The Artists' Quarter, where local artists sell their work from converted fisherman's huts.
200 Years of culture
From humble beginnings as a fishing village, Brighton first became a popular tourist destination in the 19th Century when wealthy Victorians would visit, led by King George, who built the famous Royal Pavillion. Brighton has been an important cultural centre ever since.
The city's history is reflected in its array of museums and art galleries - where you can view everything from an Egyptian gallery to a killer whale skeleton.
Brighton is famed for it's lively and varied nightlife. With five major theatres, a wealth of bars and nightclubs as well as festivals taking place every month of the year, there's something for everyone.

Brighton is a student city with a large student population. This means there is a lot of private student accommodation available, typically sharing houses with university students. We do not book this directly for you but can point you in the right direction.
