Until the late 1700s when its status was propelled into being one of the most fashionable cities in the South of England, Brighton was a small fishing town. However in the mid 1700s it was claimed that the salt water of Brighton had medicinal purposes and so people began to flock to this sleepy little town. It's thought that the arrival of the Prince Regent (who later became George IV) was what sparked Brighton into becoming one of the most fashionable towns on the south coast.
In the 1800's the town strengthened further, with the opening of the London to Brighton railway line and the building of the Palace Pier, and the Victorian era saw the building of some of Brighton's most famous landmarks today. These landmarks, the beach and surrounding attractions have made Brighton a popular coach holiday destination over the years.
