55 Brighton Recommendations, From A Brightonian

Brighton is such a beautiful city. Even now, in February, the sun-soaked houses scattered across Brighton’s hills are a gorgeous sight. Having moved here in 2020, I feel like I’ve only really got to know Brighton and its residents properly over the last year or so. To honour that, I’ve been putting together a number of guides to Brighton, and spent some time this month exploring the city with fresh eyes. Here’s where to head to if you’re visiting Brighton, be it for a day, or for an eco-friendly holiday!
