8 Things You Didn't Know About Brighton


1. Brighton and Hove collectively have the most restaurants in the country. According to Brighton Holiday Homes, there is 1 restaurant for every 250 people - so that's a whole lot of eating to be done!

2. Brighton Marina is the largest marina made by man in Europe. It covers 127 acres!

3. Brighton has always been known for celebrating liberty, acceptance and freedom. Unsurprisingly, the first ever naturist beach in Europe opened in Brighton in 1979.

4. During the Second World War German soldiers were not supposed meant to, or allowed, to bomb Brighton as Hitler wanted the Royal Pavillion Palace as his seaside house.

5. 60,000 lightbulbs make Brighton Pier glow in the evenings.


6. Brighton is home to the world's oldest cinema and the world's oldest aquarium.

7. Brighton is recognised as a pretty spooky place. It is listed as the second most haunted city in Britain just behind York!

8. Every year, 8,000,000 tourists visit Brighton - all because of the good food, fun activities, natural beauty and happy vibes.

  1. Wow that's impressive, I've been to Brighton a couple of times, once to see a concert, i want to go back again and visit the lanes, I've never heard of it being spooky but the old burnt out pier always makes me feel weird when i see it.


    Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I didn't realise there was so much I didn't know about Brighton. Can't believe Hitler wanted a summer home in the Royal Pavilion.

  10. You were SO right - I didn't know any of these things about Brighton! I can remember visiting a couple of times as a kid and I loved it there. But I didn't know much about it as a place :)
