Brighton in Top 10 world beach destinations

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh, I do...oh, alright, I won't sing the rest. There's reasoning behind my crooning though, because on MSNs Top 10 World Beach Destinations, Brighton came in at number 7. And that's the WORLD, not just the UK. Brighton was the only UK city in the list too and came in above Sydney, Australia. Pretty impressive really if you think of all the beaches around the world!Brighton is unique as a beach destination in that it has so much to offer - it's got the traditional seaside atmosphere, yet is also steeped in history. It's got a Royal Palace like no other and is often remembered for its associations with 60s Mods and Rockers and the seminal film Quadrophenia. It's got 2 piers (OK, one is not exactly a whole pier, but it's possibly the most beautiful shell of a pier you are ever likely to see!), loads of pubs and clubs, lots of arts and culture and a great selection of award winning restaurants. Its even got loads of stunning countryside just moments from the city if you feel like getting away from it all.

So, if you live here already, you're a resident of one of the Top 10 beach destinations in the world. And if you don't, why not come and find out what all the fuss is about. You can find out all about the city on the website.
