The city of Brighton is one of the largest seaside resorts in Great Britain .

Brighton has about 480,000 inhabitants today (2011) .

Glances into history

Brighton was just a small fishing town of little importance until the 18th century. Around 1740, the local doctor Richard Russell began to promote sea water as extremely beneficial to healthy lifestyle. A few years later, people from the area, especially from the capital London , began to regularly visit Brighton. That led to fast building of hotels, restaurants and entertainment centers. By the end of the 18th century, the developing resort became popular with prince regent, George IV at that time, who spent a lot of time there and had the exotic and luxurious Royal Pavilion built. That predetermined the future development of the city. In 1801, the city had 7 thousand inhabitants, while a hundred years later, more than 120 thousand people lived there.
