Attractions and Interests in Brighton
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 was what sparked Brighton into becoming one of the most fashionable towns on the south coast.
