Brighton is a trendy, cosmopolitan destination, with all the attractions of a modern city, plus beach that has been voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world. If London is the big , Brighton is the cooler, younger sibling, with a rich and vibrant culture all of its own.
The south coast of England is known to have one of the warmest climates in the UK, but the weather can still be unpredictable. However, as in the rest of Britain it is quite possible for the weather to be warm, cold, sunny, raining, windy ... all in the same day!
