Brighton : Michelin's recommendations
Brighton is where the seaside bathing tradition was invented in the 18C. This quintessential English resort town has plenty of attractions; elegant Georgian, Regency and Victorian architecture, the winding streets of its fishermen's district, as well as parks and lanes decked with flowers. Its crowning glory is the Royal Pavilion, an extraordinary exercise in “Indo-Gothic” architecture.
