The most popular and most visited place in Sussex has to be Brighton, a vibrant and exciting place pronounced as a city along with Hove in 2009 as part of the Millennium celebrations. Brighton is a seaside city with so much to offer and so much to do and is one of Britain's top holiday and long weekend destinations. Head to the magnificent seafront with its pebble beach stretching along as far as the eye can see and enjoy the al fresco life of the cafes and shops by the beach. An iconic landmark of this East Sussex city has to be Brighton Pier with its arcades, funfair and various souvenir shops and cafes and the Sea life Centre just opposite is fun for all the family. Hop on the Volks Electric Railway and enjoy the ride along the beach up to the swanky Brighton Marina, Closer to the city centre, the Royal Pavilion is a stunning piece of architecture, built as a home for the Prince Regent in the early 19th century. Lovers of all things vintage and antique should head to the Lanes and North Laine where a fabulous array of interesting shops can be found. Brighton is a popular clubbing destination too, with plenty of nightclubs, concert venues and pubs to choose from.
