Life's a beach on the south coast in Brighton

Life's a beach on the south coast in Brighton

Many people have a dream of living close to the seaside, and Brighton is up there with the most desired locations in the UK.

While some will opt for a cottage along the east coast of the UK to get their fix of sand, sea and scenery, property for sale in Brighton will offer a whole different outlook on life.

Whether you are looking for a quaint little cottage or a townhouse, the city of Brighton should be able to meet every need of its residents. It is sustained by two large universities and a thriving arts and cultural scene add to its diversity.

Known as the 'gay capital of Britain', Brighton is a friendly and welcoming place which boasts nightclubs, art galleries and more restaurants per head than anywhere in the UK aside from London.

Getting around Brighton is easy thanks to a good network of roads, with a Park & Ride scheme operating from Withdean Stadium. Trains can also be caught by commuters to the likes of Portsmouth, Eastbourne, Southampton and Hastings.

Those who are working in London might find Brighton to be the ideal location for their new home, with the big city under an hour away by train, while ferry links from the port of Newhaven - and further afield Dover, Portsmouth and Southampton - keep people connected to the continent.

When it comes to relaxing then North Laine should be explored, as it is home to hundreds of shops, pubs, museums, theatres and cafes. Brighton beach will also be the destination for hours of enjoyment, stretching for five miles along the south coast.

Brighton is also home to tens of landmarks which make the city a fantastic place to live, with something going on or waiting to be visited every day of the week. The Royal Pavilion, Brighton Pier and Clocktower are among the most popular sights.

As previously mentioned, the University of Sussex and University of Brighton provide a high number of students in the city, while there are a wide range of state, faith and private schools to choose from.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801592320-ADNFCR
