Brighton Mini Guide

Brighton is a seaside city in Sussex. Although Brighton is more comparable in size to a town, it was given the designation of a city along with its neighbouring conurbation, Hove. With a car you can also visit the beautiful downs countryside that surrounds it. This includes the amazing vistas from the intriguingly named Devil’s Dyke.  Car Rentals can be collected in Brighton or from its nearest airport which is London Gatwick.
