Brighton Travel Guide

Brighton Local History

Brighton became a new trendsetter in 1783 when the Prince Regent visited the resort with his mistress and thereby began a new customÂ… that of dirty weekends. There is a lot more to Brighton of-course, also courtesy of the naughty prince, and people come here not only for splashing and playing on the beaches, but also spend time gawking at the fantastic pleasure palace he erected in the Royal Pavilion and other magnificent regency period architecture.

Nevertheless, visitors crowd the beach and fight over their tiny spot in the sun when it does shine.
