Located on the south coast of England, less than an hour from London by train, Brighton is one of the UK’s most popular destinations.
Here are a few fun facts to give you an insight into this vibrant, historic and diverse city.
1. 'Brighton' is not the city's full name
Brighton is actually formally known as the city of Brighton and Hove. The towns of Brighton and Hove formed a unitary authority in 1997 and were granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II in 2001. Many locals still consider the two to be separate towns.
2. Brighton was the backdrop to ABBA's Eurovision success
Most people don't know that when the Swedish band ABBA won the Eurovision song contest with ‘Waterloo’ in 1974, it was in Brighton! The event was held at the Brighton Dome concert hall, still a popular arts venue today.
3. Brighton borders the UK's newest national park
Another fact which visitors to the UK may not know is that although Brighton is a coastal city, you only need to travel 10 minutes outside of the city to reach the South Downs – the UK's newest national park.
4. Brighton is home to Britain's oldest cinema
A well-known landmark in Brighton is the historic Duke of York’s cinema – it's reputed to be the oldest cinema in continuous use in Britain, and offers cosy, theatre-esque surroundings in which to watch the latest releases and re-runs of the all-time classics.
