What is it like to live in Brighton? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Brighton in my opinion os the best city to live in in the UK. The city centre is small enough to walk around, it is cosmopolitan, 50m train from central London, has wonderful sea, parks and very rich cultural life.

What is the student lifestyle like in Brighton?

Since there are 2 universities, and a city full of pubs, clubs, restaurants, theatre, music, art events and venues..what is there not to like?

How much does it cost to live in Brighton?

It is not cheap. It is a little cheaper than London. £450-500 all inclusive room to rent would be possible.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Brighton? Is there any advice you can give?

There are plenty of places to rent however, best shares are probably a little out of the centre

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

You can find any kind of food, here. For cheap shopping you need to get to the cheaper markets. My preference is healthy Mediterranean food and healthy organic. Brighton has the first whiolefoods shop in the country, set up in the early 1970s and still going today: Infinity Foods on North Rd..

What places would you recommend visiting in Brighton?

The sea front, the Pavilion Gardens, alternative shops in Kensington Gardens, Bond St.,

Is it good to eat out in Brighton? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

Head to anywhere between tRafalgar St and North St, down Preston St., or my favourite sea side fish restaurant: The Regency!

Is the nightlife good in Brighton? Where is good to go?

Excellent. Depending on our taste: pubs, night clubs, cinema, theatre, comedy clubs, music venues, art galleries etc etc..and of course the amazing Brighton Arts Festival everywhere in the city, in the month of MAY

What advice would you give future students heading to Brighton?

Find a way of working part-time to get extra income, so you can enjoy in full the wonderful cultural riches of Brighton and Hove, while you are here. Best months for acceptable weather are from April- October!
