This brilliant and quirky city has a lot going for it. From its iconic pier to its popular beaches, it’s always been a popular holiday destination among Brits. If you are into arts and music there are so many attractions and festivals throughout the year. Brighton is also the unofficial Gay Capital of the UK, so everywhere is totally LGBT friendly. There are amazing shopping, eating and partying districts throughout the city. If you fancy getting a bird’s eye view, you can head up Brighton’s futuristic ‘vertical pier’, which is a round, glass viewing platform that sends you 138 metres above the city.
Other than being the famous birthplace of The Beatles, Liverpool has a lot going for it. Aside from a fantastic range of music and arts venues, the city is within a short drive of some great beaches.
