Destination overview:

Popular since Regency times, Brighton’s architecture is particularly appealing, with winding streets (known as “the lanes”), packed full of trendy, arty and eclectic shops and cafés that lead down to the seafront. The hub of the town is Palace Pier, the seafront and its famous pebbled beach.

The Brighton Pavilion is an impressive affair; it looks like it belongs in a Far Eastern fairy-tale. It was built by the Prince Regent in 1815, in the style of the Taj Mahal. Visitors can tour the building to see its interiors and gardens.
