About the City of Brighton

The city of Brighton is located in the East Sussex in England. Brighton dates as far back as the Bronze Age within the Roman and Anglo-Saxion periods. The town became more significant during the Middle Ages as it saw economic, social and overall financial development. The years that followed the Middle Ages, the start of the modern era brought with it attacks, storms, a declining economy and as a result, a declining population. The city did eventually turn itself around as they improved roads and access to London and opened itself up as a destination for boats and travelers heading to France, and people saw the health benefits of sea bathing. The railways in 1841 brought even more tourist attention and Brighton continued to become a seaside paradise for all kinds of tourists which resulted in tourist attractions being constructed in the Victorian era. The city`s development was so rapid that in 1997, the town merged and joined the town of Hove.Brighton_Dome
