Why you should move to Brighton and Hove
Thinking of making a move to the best city on the south coast?
Here’s why you’ll love living and working in Brighton:
It’s a happy place – fact
The local residents genuinely love where they live. The city was named ‘happiest capital of the UK’ in a nationwide survey – over a third of Brightonions chose the word ‘happy’ to describe their lives here.
When the same survey looked into ‘life satisfaction,’ Brighton also came out as one of the top three cities in the UK.
It has its fair share of national chains too, but the city’s unique layout and historic architecture mean it’s no carbon copy.
North Laine is a treasure-trove of vintage clothes shops and independent coffee shops.
Further south is ‘The Lanes‘ – a historic labyrinth of jewellery stores, antique shops, cupcake cafes and drinking holes.
The sea and South Downs
Brighton makes it easy to relax after work, or take a break from city life.
The beach beckons throughout the year, and you can get involved in everything from kitesurfing and sea swimming to outdoor yoga.
You’ve also got the South Downs National Park right on your doorstep.
A 15-minute bus ride takes you to some of the best hiking trails, picnic spots and country pubs in the southeast.
It’s just the right size
Brighton’s relatively small size means that’s that nowhere is more than a short stroll or bus ride away, and its eclectic qualities sit side-by-side.
Wherever you choose to live in the city, work and play will never be far away.
