Brighton is a large town on the southern coast of England and, along with its neighbouring town of Hove, a significant urban area within the county of Sussex. Home to hundreds of businesses of varying sizes, Brighton is a major draw for tourists from within the UK and beyond. Many thousands of Londoners visit the south-east coast and Brighton’s beaches every month, and the town has a strong and vibrant economy beyond what tends to be a buoyant tourist trade. Brighton’s history as an inhabited area stretches back at least a millennium but its popularity and economic importance was boosted dramatically with the advent of rail travel and more direct contact with London during the 19th century. Key areas within Brighton and Hove include those around the Lanes, North Laine and the Cultural Quarter, which are collectively the heart of the town between its central train station and the waterfront.
