Brighton is an English town in East Sussex, coupled with nearby Hove, located approximately 100km south of London. It is situated on the coastline between the English Channel and the chalk hills of the South Downs, and it is crossed by the seasonal river Whalesbone, which dries up in the summer. The climate in Brighton is temperate, mild, and often sunny during the beautiful season, with refreshing breezes throughout the year and showers in winter. Temperatures generally range from 3°C at the coldest in winter to 21°C in summer.

History & Culture

Completely burned down by French invaders in 1514, Brighton, then known as Bristelmestone, had to rise from its ashes, with only the road layout and the Church of St. Nicholas surviving. In 1841, the city began to experience an influx of tourists, especially from London, thanks to the arrival of the railway and the reputation of the healing properties of Brighton's seawater, in addition to its climate and coastal environment. The city also underwent remarkable expansion, with its area multiplying by 10 between the 17th and 20th centuries! Today, it is a major seaside and student city, a preferred destination for English language stays, with over 40 English language schools in its territory.
