Brighton belongs to the Brighton and Hove District too.

The Brighton economy is supported by over 16,000 businesses, an amount that has only grown over the last decade. The Brighton and Hove Council has shown initiative economically across many different sectors, encouraging some of the highest levels of business start-ups in the city’s history.
Many owe the recent success of Brighton’s economy to the working population; referred to as a talented workforce. This is not shocking, with the population being very educated and diverse in terms of skills. This is thanks to both Brighton College and the University of Brighton. The city’s economy is often described as ‘enterprising’, and this is necessary to support a cosmopolitan population of self-starters who come out of these educational institutions and stay in student houses or other forms of student accommodation in Brighton.
Another contributor to the economy, which we’re sure you will become part of too, is the visiting population. Those of them who are corporates may be visiting for corporate events in Brighton or heading to some of the many Brighton business parks. Whether they visit the Hyde, Woodingdean or the Innovation Centre, corporates can be sure that there is plentiful long-term serviced apartments in Brighton nearby to cater for however long they need to stay.
The history of Brighton begins with the city growing from just a small fishing village. The first mention of this came in the seventh century, from the Anglo-Saxon period. Presumably, you would think the city would grow from being a small fishing village, but Brighton actually maintained this status up until the late eighteenth century.
The next phase of Brighton’s history was as a fashionable resort. This was during a Regency era, and thus came the construction of the iconic Regency Square. Other important developments then followed such as the London to Brighton railway connection, the Brighton Cathedral and many Brighton attractions that encourage tourists to visit all year round.
To learn in more detail about the local history during your visit to the city, be sure to visit the Brighton Museum. This museum and many others are great representatives of the city’s rich history, based within proximity of many of our aparthotels in Brighton.
There are so many places to visit in Brighton, and so much to see. Beautiful local areas such as Hove are definitely worth exploring. Here you can enjoy its famous colourful beach huts as well as beautiful Regency architecture.
Among Brighton’s attractions, the Brighton Pier stands out. This Grade 1 Listed pier is the city’s one of the most iconic landmarks. Opened in 1866 and originally served as a promenade for wealthy Victorians, but by World War I had evolved into a pleasure pier with rides and a concert hall.
If you happen to visit Brighton in May, you can enjoy the annual Brighton Festival. Established in 1967 it has become one of the city’s symbols, celebrating music, theatre, dance, art, film and literature.

From Brighton, the airport can be accessed via the Gatwick railway station or through taxi transfers. These can be booked from the comfort of luxury serviced apartments in Brighton.
The other London airports are not far away either. Brighton does have its own airport (also known as Shoreham Airport), which is the oldest in the UK. It is dubbed the gateway into the region, despite offering far fewer flights than the international airports.
