Located on the south coast of England, Brighton is a major part of the city of Brighton and Hove in East Sussex and a place that has been associated with a rich cultural history ever since the mid-eighteenth century. Development of Georgian terraces from 1780 onwards began the conversion of the small fishing village into a fashionable resort with reputedly medicinal waters, and the arrival of the railway in the mid-nineteenth century brought day-trippers in their hoards. However it was the Prince Regent (later King George IV) who was to leave the longest-lasting impression on this party-loving and hedonistic seaside resort with the construction of the Royal Pavilion.
From the days of the Prince Regent, Brighton has been drawing a quirky crowd right through to today’s era. According to boutique hotel The Oriental, the main draw cards to Brighton are its cosmopolitan crowd, vast centuries of history, the South Downs, its one-of-a-kind festivals and unbeatable water-sports. One of the original Brighton boutique hotels, The Oriental offers guests a luxury stay that is ‘under-stated yet bursting with character.’
Considering the aerial standstill last week, there has never been a more appealing time head (overland!) to Brighton for a weekend getaway, a mid-week mini-break or a business stay in the most vibrant seaside resort in England. Furthermore, like Brighton itself, The Oriental is one boutique hotel Brighton that has long been synonymous with musicians, artists and authors – and thus provides a true reflection of Brighton.
