Life & StyleWhere to buy in and around…Brighton: The £1m property, the doer-upper & the average home


Sometimes known as London-by-the-sea, Brighton has become a popular spot for buyers over the last two years. The town is located close to London, making it the perfect spot for commuters who need to work in the city during the day and want to relax at the seaside in the evening. People who move to Brighton often make the move for the quality of life, excellent employment opportunities and incredible nightlife.

Why move to Brighton?

Brighton offers a slower version of the London lifestyle by the sea with a lower cost of living.

Those who do miss the bright lights of London can still enjoy it, with Brighton being just 47 miles south of London.

A train from Brighton to London takes just an hour while driving to the capital takes one hour and 40 minutes.

Brighton’s centre offers plenty of amenities, shops, activities, eateries and bars.

Brighton’s North Laine district is known for its bohemian feel, vegan cafes, vintage clothing stores and jewellery shops.

The seaside resort is also a great location for all age groups, with plenty to do for children and retired individuals.
