By far the chicest, most cosmopolitan and most highly populated seaside resort in the UK, Brighton is famed for its creative spirit, liberal outlook, iconic piers and tooth-cracking candy. Its Victorian architecture, metropolitan style and growing number of resident commuters have all led to it being broadly known as “London by the sea.” With advance train tickets from the capital as low as $10, and a 45-minute journey time, a stopover during your next UK trip – armed with our insider tips – is a must.

Brighton is the epicentre of an ueber-hip, boutique bed and breakfast scene, with dozens of properties to choose from, all located just minutes from the beach. For quirky mock Tudor designs (look out for the bizarre gargoyles) and a handy central location, Hotel du Vin is great for both wine lovers, as its name indicates. It’s owned by a wine merchant, has a wine bar, and its own tasting room. It’s also great for lovey-dovey couples – or even better, wine-loving, lovey-dovey couples.

Alternatively, it’s fairly straight-forward to book an entire house if you’re traveling in a large group. Brighton is, after all, home to some of the country’s most boisterous bachelor and bachelorette parties. Airbnb always has lots of interesting sleeping options in this beautifully boho city.
