"Brighton & the South Coast" Brighton by hayward68

Brighton Travel Guide: 962 reviews and 1,717 photos

<b>Brighton began as a small fishing village, but was "discovered" in the mid 1700's by the London crowd who came here for the supposed therapeutic benefits of sea bathing.
It's still a popular day outing for Londoners, being less than an hour away by train. Even my family used to spend the day here when I was little, and way back when my Mum was young.(I don't mean way, way back :-), Mum's not that old!!) I'm hoping to find some of those older pics to put on this page later.
I've been back to Brighton a couple of times since we moved to Canada and I really love it.

Here's a good site for attractions on the Sussex coast <a href="http://www.sussexcoast.co.uk/index.htm"target="_none">Sussex</a>
Be sure to visit the surrounding towns and countryside as well, they have charms all of their own.
I've added towns I visited in July 2001 to this page. They're all within fairly easy access of Brighton, so thought I'd put them in here.
