Living And Working In Brighton

February 11, 2022
Joanna Clare

Brighton is situated on the southern coast of England and is in the county of East Sussex.

Being slightly less than fifty miles from London, it is ideally placed for commuting. The City of Brighton and Hove is divided into two parts and one of the two parts, Brighton, is renowned as a popular seaside resort.

The economic history of Brighton is one predominantly of fishing and by the late 1700’s wealthy people began to visit to bathe in the seawater which they believed held medicinal properties. The city started to expand and thrive especially when a railway was built in 1841 which linked London to Brighton.

Brighton brings in millions of visitors each year. A large percentage of employment has been created because of this and tourism continues to thrive. There is also a heavy focus on a fast growing digital trade, cultural and creative industries, environmental industries, advanced engineering, financial and health and life sciences. Research has shown that it is also one of the best places to start and expand a business and is recognised as a city of enterprise and innovation.

Within Brighton and Hove, there are two universities and five colleges, all with fantastic reputations and very high academic standards which attract the finest students from far and wide.

It is a vibrant, diverse, cosmopolitan and colourful city with its own unique personality and an exciting atmosphere and is a haven for the LGBT community, often being affectionately known as the LGBT capital.

Brighton Beach has been voted one of the ‘top ten’ city beach holiday destinations in the world and there is far more to it than just the pebbled beach. You can try watersports, visit Sea-Life which is the world's oldest operating aquarium, stroll along the victorian pier and pop into the amusement arcades or sample the exhilarating variety of bars, restaurants and cafes ~ not forgetting the iconic fish and chip shops.

There are several interesting museums and many galleries with an assortment of both traditional and unusual shops where you can just about find anything and of course, the popular Brighton Market where everything is ethically sourced.

The British Airways Viewing Tower - the i-360- allows visitors to observe most of Brighton and beyond, via its 150 feet tall structure and it even creates its own energy to power itself. However, if you prefer to explore the surrounding areas, you can visit the South Downs National Park which covers 628 square miles with its many beautiful places of interest and meander through the historically quaint villages.

Brighton is more affordable than London yet retains the energetic and cosmopolitan vibe that you would expect from a major coastal city. Brighton has already seen an increase of buyers who wish to relocate from London or from elsewhere who are simply seeking the ultimate lifestyle change.
