England, Brighton Guide (B): Bohemia by the Sea. Brighton England

Brighton England has a wonderful reputation for dirty weekends, a hedonistic lifestyle and a cosmopolitan, bohemian vibe that would make 1960’s San Francisco blush.

All this started back in 1787 when the Prince Regent, George IV came to town to build a seaside party retreat. George set a scene that continues today!

Described as one of Britain’s most outlandish cities, this seaside town has a flare for burlesque, Britain’s largest gay community and a serious club scene. Summer festivals draw more than a crowd including the UK’s biggest Pride festival.

Throughout history, Brighton has been the place to come for new experiences, to have fun, or maybe just to get up to some good old fashioned shenanigans.

But don’t be deceived, Brighton has something for everyone. After a burlesque show, you can enjoy some of the UK’s finest dining.
