The clubbing is brilliant there; there’s a variety of clubs and bars the best ones being Revolution and Oceana. I went out for a number of meals and I really enjoyed them specifically when I had a classic Italian pasta dish at Donatello’s in the heart of the Lanes.
Also those restaurants on the seafront where you can hear the sea as you eat your food created a fantastic atmosphere. Part of this memorable experience was going on the Brighton sightseeing bus which takes you along the seafront and through the heart of the City. You get to see the hustle and bustle of the City in a relatively quick ride which is perfect for a weekend away.
The people in Brighton are all so friendly and are always happy to give you directions around the city or direct you through the lanes where it can be a lot like a maze! For your vacation ideas in England, I think Brighton would do quite well for people. - Ross from England
