Brighton is part of the city of Brighton and Hove located in the county of East Sussex.Brighton is a famous town on the south coast of Great Britain. This town has gained its popularity as a health resort featuring sea bathing during the 18th century, and was used as a seaside getaway by the Prince Regent. After the railway reached the town in 1841, it became a popular destination for day-trippers from London. Brighton is the largest and best-known seaside resort on the English Channel. It stretches some five miles along the pebbled and sometimes-steep chalk shoreline of the South Downs. The seafront has many amusement arcades, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Because of it's close proximity to London, Brighton has many visitors travelling down from the capital, which takes less than an hour by train. Today, Brighton's famous pebble beaches are lined with countless souvenir shops and amusement arcades. But it remains a culturally vibrant destination with a full calendar of cultural events including horse races in the summer, and the famous London to Brighton Veteran Car Run in November.
