Brighton is undoubtedly one of the most colourful, vibrant and creative cities in the UK, if not Europe. It has grown beyond its Regency heritage into a cosmopolitan, fun, energetic, unique, historic, young, exotic and free-spirited city on the south coast of England.For visitors to Brighton there is so much to see and do for young an old. For visitors to Brighton, East Sussex there is so much to see and do for young an old.

Built for the Prince of Wales the wonderfully decadent Royal Pavilion is a must see and is just as impressive oriental and exotic inspired interior.  Next stop is the old shopping streets known as the Lanes where you will find antique shops, designer shops, bars and restuarants in these narrow streets. The North Laine area has grown significantly in recent years incorporating theatres, bars and restaurants, arts and becoming the centre of the vibrant metropolitan nightlife.

The seafront itself is dominated by entertainment complexes and hotels, including the Grand Hotel, and the developed Brighton Pier that now includes amusement rides and bars.  The remains of the West Pier can still be seen.

Just an hour from London, Brighton is also close to the South Downs and so you are only a short drive from the peaceful countryside.

If you are looking to stay in the centre of Brighton, then look no further than the Griffin Guest House in the popular central area of Kemp Town. The Griffin is a Georgian Townhouse in the heart of Brighton, East Sussex,  just a few yards from St. James St. and also just off the seafront, you can be on the Pier in less than two minutes.

The Griffin has undergone a thorough renovation in recent times and offers clean modern accommodation, lodged in a charming building dating from 1760, the hotel has nine rooms, each with its own en suite Whirlpool bath or shower.
