So you've chosen to study in Brighton? Well done, these are going to be the best three + years of your life!
Brighton is renowned for being the UK's bohemian answer to San Francisco, and is just 50 minutes on the train away from the capital. So without further ado, here are the Top 10 things to do in Brighton, as told by Lizzi Hart, a recent Sussex graduate and marketing assistant at the Graduate Recruitment Bureau...
The Lanes/North Laine
Good for: Shopping, eating and drinking.
What it is: Two sets of winding lanes full of shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.
Why you should go: The Lanes and the North Laine hold a plethora of culture, entertainment and kooky unusual shops. With some of the best bars, shops and eateries residing in these two iconic shopping districts, they represent the epitome of Brighton life.
In terms of the shops, either opt for retro and kitsch (North Laine) or independent and designer boutiques. Make sure you get a chance to explore both areas at a leisurely pace before you get too bogged down with coursework.
