Brighton is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city of approximately 250,000 people in the historic country of East Sussex in the south-east of England. The city is nestled in between the Sussex Downs National Park and the English Channel, surrounding by chalk cliffs and home to 5.4 miles of shingle beach. The seafront is the epicentre for all things recreational in Brighton, the most notable of which is the Palace pleasure pier, informally known as Brighton Pier following the demise of its sister pier to the west that has been severely damaged by fire. Brighton also provides the sole Green Party parliamentary seat representing Brighton Pavillion, as-well as having a substantial LGBT community, often being referred to as the “gay capital of Europe”.
Brighton House Prices & Redevelopment
Given its proximity to London, average house prices have followed a similar trend to those seen in the capital, having some of the highest prices in the United Kingdom. Owed to tougher restrictions on borrowing and increasing fears of interest rates rises however, the housing bubble looks set to deflate, rather than burst, in the near future.
In the midst of major redevelopment projects that are seeking to create a new nature reserve and multiplex cinema, amongst other things, there are also plans to build a large scale Rampion wind farm between 8 and 15 miles off the coast. North Street will soon see its pavements widened and bus stops shifted in order to provide more space for pedestrians, the newly rejuvenated open market opened recently, the former Circus Street Municipal Market will be redeveloped into an ‘Innovation Quarter’ under the ‘Grow Brighton’ scheme and major regeneration is ongoing at the Black Rock site on the seafront. The Royal Sussex Hospital has also seen £420 million of investment and the railway station has recently benefitted from major refurbishment. These are just a few of the many infrastructural projects ongoing in the city.
Finally, after years of debate and planning, ground was finally broken on the construction site of the Brighton i360. The observation tower, which will be the highest in Britain outside London, is due to be completed in 2016.
Brighton Culture, Attractions & Things to Do
Brighton & Hove has an extremely energetic nightlife scene that attracts nocturnal revellers from far and wide. West Street is the one of the most popular destinations for party-goers on a night out, but there are a myriad of bars, clubs and pubs dotted around the city catering for all tastes. The Brighton Centre, the Brighton Dome and Concorde2 are some of the venues most frequently hosting live music. As has been mentioned, Brighton’s famous LGBT community are particularly active, putting on a fabulously flamboyant Pride festival annually in May, which is the second largest Arts Festival in the UK.
Despite having a large amount of its population commuting to and from London every day, Brighton is far from a suburb of the capital. Brighton has a prosperous commercial economy and has been ranked as one of the country’s top performing cities economically in the UK Vitality Index Report, being described as a super city of the future. American Express have their European headquarters in Brighton and constitute the city’s largest single private sector employer, boasting a workforce of over 3,000 people. The technology sector in particular has thrived, earning the nickname ‘Silicone Beach’, with companies such as Goggap and Brandwatch also based there.
Brighton has a strong retail sector. Churchill Square is the largest shopping centre and there are several retail parks. The Lanes is a major contributor to the city’s retail economy and is famed for its vibrant milieu of independent avant garde and boutique style shops. The North Laines is a bustling and dynamic mixture of over 400 independent shops, cafés, restaurants, bars, entertainment venues and more. Locals will proudly boast that there is something for everyone in North Laines and tourists will often concur that there is nowhere else quite like the Lanes in the UK.
