Often hailed as one of the friendliest and most socially progressive cities in Southern England, Brighton is an excellent place to live and work for those averse to ultra-corporate business environments. Indeed, the seaside city has garnered its welcoming and laid-back reputation thanks to the carnivalesque atmosphere of its beaches and the hard graft of its many hospitality workers. Unsurprisingly, tourism and hospitality are the biggest industries in Brighton, attracting upwards of 400,000 foreign visitors every year. Apart from these industries, however, there are plenty of other thriving sectors of economic growth in the city including retail trade, education, social work, and the creative and digital industries.
Professionals who decide to settle down in Brighton will benefit from the city’s quirky architectural landscape and plentiful green spaces, as well as its myriad pubs, bars and restaurants. The Lanes – an interlocking collection of narrow lanes in the centre of the city – are also a great draw for tourists and residents alike, boasting an ever-evolving array of independent boutiques and coffee shops that would brighten anyone’s day.
As well as being a relatively compact city that is easy to get around, Brighton is very well connected. First of all, it boasts quick and frequent rail links to London, as well as accessible road links to regions across the UK. Thanks to its associations with the UK Green Party, the city has also developed one of the best clean transport infrastructures in the country – great news for the environmentally-conscious who would like to maintain a low carbon footprint on their daily commute.
