Brighton is a beautiful city on the English south coast. With its long beaches, the city has become a popular destination among both foreign and domestic tourists. Due to good communications and the fact that it is so close, it has become a great holiday destination for Londoners who want to get out to sea. It only takes an hour by train from London.
Tourism is a major source of income in the city. The 230,000 inhabitants welcome about 8 million tourists every year. This is clearly noticeable in the city's range of hotels, restaurants, bars and entertainment.
A real landmark for Brighton is the famous Brighton Palace Pier. The 525 meter long entertainment pier was inaugurated in 1899 and is one of the city's biggest tourist attractions with over 4.5 million visitors each year. The pier has several restaurants and bars and at the far end of the pier there is an amusement park with carousels and a games room.
Another amazing building is the former royal residence The Royal Pavilion. This palace from the early 19th century was a holiday home for Prince George (later King George IV) and is in Oriental / Indian style. Today the palace is a museum and there are guided tours every day of the week.
For the best views in Brighton, head to the British Airways i360 lookout tower. The 132 meter high tower has a rotating platform that slowly takes you up and down the tower and offers you a fantastic view in 360 degrees. On clear weather days, you can see all the way to the island of Isle of Wight which is about 50 miles away (bird's eye view).
Brighton is a paradise for food lovers and the range of those looking for vegetarian / vegan options is really good. A hot tip in that category is the restaurant Terre à Terre at 71 East Street. Feel free to try their tapas menu to get a taste of each of their fantastic selection.
If you want to get the city's best "English breakfast", head to Bill's at The Depot, 100 North Rd. Their "Bill´s Brunch" leaves nothing to chance. Maybe a little in the more expensive direction, but well worth the extra penny.
Brighton's premier football club Brighton & Hove Albion FC (known as The Seagulls) play in England's highest division Premier League. The home matches are played at Falmer Stadium, which was built in 2011 and has an audience capacity of approximately 30,000.
The airport in Brighton is called Brighton Shoreham Airport, but the easiest and cheapest way to get there is by flying to Gatwick (London) and then taking the high-speed trains that take about 30 minutes to central Brighton.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
