    Brighton is one of the most attractive English cities. The Royal Pavilion is grandiose, the Regency architecture appealing and the tacky Pier with its amusement park and arcade games unique in its kind. If you go there, just try to avoid Friday and Saturday nights: too noisy with drunk party animals, especially near the Pier.

    Dear maciamo if you don't like "drunk party animals" then you should stay at home after 10PM because it's the same thing every night ^^ (maybe quieter in sunday nights)

    People hate it, people love it...but in my book, it's bang on.

    The main high street is a bit crappy, but The Lanes are fantastic...a nice little italian restaurant that serves a good full englsih breakfast (yeah, go figure!), crazy novelty shops, stylish boutiques, second hand jewellers, a gun shop (yeah, not quite sure about that one either), designer shops, loads of bars and restaurants...

    Anyway, that's my 2 cents!

    Peace

    Sounds interesting... I have to write it on my 'where i wish to go' list!!!!

    I think that you should add that that is in the tourism season. last time i went was in February and there were very few 'party animals'...or if they were there, they were pretty good at hiding it!

    lol
    Brightons got a pretty big student community..... i know for a fact that when my brother was there for his first year he was out every night pretty much, drinking himself silly...
    haha, there are some storries that would make you laugh so much...
    like, one time he woke up in a field and had no idea how he got there....
    and aother time he woke up in FRANCE!
    so..... i think it's pretty accurate.... just mebies not every single night....
    but i know my brother was oute at least 3 time a week for a good stretch of time during the term.

    Hey's that's cool!

    One word of advice, avoid the Sea Life Centre...it's dull and expensive.
    It's a waste of time and money, even if you like sealife...
    The way i see it, you've seen one fish, you've seen 'em all.

    I went to Brighton on a college trip and the pier was spectacular, although I restricted myself mostly to the arcade section. Oxford is my kind of town; historical, small and relatively liberal city with a bustling city centre. The Pitt Rivers and the Oxford museum of science are excellent places to spend time in, as well as strolling along the various canals and rivers which make up Oxford. Don't forget to go to the secretive Turf Tavern which is frequented by University of Oxford students.

    I love Brighton. It's a beautiful city and it's a shame I've only been there once (I plan to visit it again this summer though lol)

    Hey! Brighton is my favourite place in England! You have to go in the middle of the year there, they have a great carnival and if the weather is good everything is better!
    I don't know if you saw this, but a great movie with Brighton pictures is Quadrophenia, such as the Carnival in the city the movie has one amazing soundtrack and you should really see if you want to go there!

    I visited Brighton once, I didn't like it. Can see why some people DO like it however, but it's just too faux-cultured to me. Seems a bit fake, but that's just me. Lots of people love this place

    I love to go UK, London and Brighton are my favorite places. A year ago, I was there with my friend and we make lots of fun there. and I agree with you that some people like this place and some are not but I really like it.
