Studying in Brighton
The history of the resort stretches from the end of the 18th century, when all the prominent English aristocrats gathered in the summer in this fishing village to take sun baths and swim. No wonder the British themselves call Brighton London at sea. In the forefront of the town’s fans was the Prince Regent (future King George IV). On his orders, the Royal Pavilion was built here in the Indo-Saracen style, decorated with oriental domes and minarets, which made the stiff British resort an exotic look.

What attracted the most eminent aristocrats of the country to Brighton, and why is the current generation seeking vacation here?

King George IV first appeared in Brighton in 1783 and fell in love with this place so much that he soon ordered the construction of a seaside residence to begin. The architect was the famous John Nash, the author of Buckingham Palace and Regent Street in London. This oriental-style fantasy resembles a magical castle from the tales of Scheherazade. On an excursion, tourists examine the inner chambers, an art gallery and get acquainted with everyday life, cuisine and the diet of the king.
