Brighton is a large, cosmopolitan city in East Sussex on the South Cost of England 50 miles south of London and 15 miles from Worthing. Transports links with regular trains from Brighton to London Victoria, the A23 leading to the M25 and London Gatwick airport only 28 miles away. The city has been a very popular seaside resort since the Georgian era when the Price Regent constructed the exotic Royal Pavilion. The Victorian Palace pleasure pier offers traditional candy floss, fish & chips and deckchairs in contrast to the ultra-modern British Airways i360, the highest moving observation platform in the world. Brighton is also famous for its huge selection of quirky shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and bars as well as its pulsating nightlife. From a business point of view, Brighton has several large conference and exhibition venues and has recently been dubbed Silicon Beach due to the huge number of digital media companies that are based in the city.
