Why move to Brighton?

The neighbouring towns of Brighton and Hove don't really take much selling. They're by the sea, with regular, easy and fast connections to London, and they're bursting with cafes, bars, restaurants and independent shops. There's a very good reason so many people are upping sticks and moving here.

Some things to love about living in Brighton & Hove

Take a trip along the seafront on the famous Volks Railway.

Stroll around the Marina, enjoying the view of many yachts and boats or grasping the opportunity to fish. As well as browsing through the shops, there is the chance to dine in an array of restaurants before visiting The Casino, Cineworld or even Bowlplex for some fun.

Embrace the party atmosphere of the annual Gay Pride Festival in the heart of the city during Summer.

Spend a day wandering the independent shops, cafes and bars in The Lanes... a charming experience.

Challenge yourself and take part in the Brighton Half Marathon. Held every February along the coastline, the hills and wind make the 13.2 miles gruelling yet exhilerating.

A little bit of history

Brighton was originally named Bristelmestune, a town that was burnt to the ground in 1514 during a war between France and England. The only things to survive the fire were parts of St Nicholas Church and the pattern for the streets now known as The Lanes. By 1780 the town began to develop as a fashionable resort town, and it become even more popular after the Prince Regent chose to spend his leisure time there, building the Royal Pavilion in the early years of his regency. By 1901 and the earlier arrival of the railway, the town saw 120,000 day-trippers from London arriving every year, with many of the town's major attractions being developed
