Teach in Brighton
Brighton is an English seaside town, located approximately one hour south of London by train, and is one of the coolest cities in the UK to live. Brighton’s broad shingle beach is backed by amusement arcades, food stalls and Regency-era buildings. The town is also known for its nightlife, culture, arts scene, shopping and festivals.
Brighton is home to several landmarks, including the famous Brighton Pier, Clock Tower and Brighton Pavilion, which are all top attractions to see in the city.
With somewhere as creative and free spirited as Brighton there is a lot of street art in and around the town. Brighton’s shopping scene is especially good if you’re looking for something unique. Head to North Laine to discover charming markets, vintage shops and cute cafes.
If you enjoy music, Brighton is one of the main touring destinations. As well as big name artists and local talent, each May the city hosts the Brighton Festival, the second largest arts festival in the UK.
Brighton is a city where you’ll never be bored. From comedy nights to club nights and everything in-between, it has a reputation as a city that never sleeps. Check out The Telegraph Newspaper’s guide to the best things to do in Brighton here.
