Greentraveller Guide to Brighton
What's not to love about Brighton? For the eco-minded visitor, this city seems to have it all: there are the quirky Lanes and trendy North Laine areas crammed with independent boutiques and galleries, dozens of restaurants and cafés serving up local Sussex produce, and a huge choice of green guesthouses and hotels splashed across the city.
Brighton is an exciting, visionary, and inspiring place which is leading the way in green city living. And with miles of beautiful coastline, a blue-flagged beach and the South Downs National Park all on the city's doorstep, there are plenty of outdoor activities in the area to keep you busy for weeks.
Our Greentraveller Guide to Brighton will help you get the most out of your trip to this colourful, energetic, and eco-friendly city.
