Brighton is a vibrant and young city with a cosmopolitan feel and way of life which attracts people from all around the world.  This is enhanced by the addition of two universities, University of Brighton and University of Sussex, and a wealth of cultural treasures.  An exciting seaside city with an excellent quality of life with its coffee bars, restaurants, pubs, night clubs and theatres.  Wander through 'The Laines' enjoying the boutique shopping, and street entertainers.

You can walk along the promenade, and stroll out to sea on Brighton Pier or ride on England's oldest Volk Electric Railway along Madeira Drive to Brighton Marina, admiring the fine Regency terraces as you go.

Brighton has excellent rail and road links to and from London (52 mins by train) and with the port of Newhaven just 10 miles away you have easy access to France and Europe.
