Brighton’s stellar rise as a seaside resort began in the Georgian era, when the Prince Regent was a frequent patron of the city. But Brighton’s origins stretch back to neolithic times with the first settlement being dated to around 3000 BC. The numerous bones and tools identified by archaeologists suggest it was a place of importance even back then. It should be no surprise that there were still substantial settlements in the area during the Bronze Age and Iron Age.
In Roman Times there were a number of Roman villas in the area and a nearby Roman road connected the region to London. After Roman occupation ended Brighton returned to the control of the native Celt until the Anglo-Saxons invaded in the 5th century AD.
It was these Anglo-Saxon invaders who first built the village of Bristelmestune, taking advantage of the raised land for buildings and easy access for boats. By the 11th century the village had a population of 400 and it grew in importance and size, reaching 4,000 people by the 17th century, becoming the largest town in Sussex.
As the popularity for taking in the waters grew in the 18th century, Brighton had another population boom as it became a tourist destination. Spas and indoor pools were opened and with the patronage of King George IV, or Prince Regent as he was then, Brighton transformed from a fishing village to a fashionable resort.
The 19th century brought the railways, making Brighton accessible to a far larger number of visitors. In the space of a hundred years the population grew rapidly and many of the iconic attractions we know today were constructed. The Grand Hotel, the West Pier and the Palace Pier were all built during the Victorian era.
Securing its place as one of the most popular seaside resorts in the UK, Brighton was granted City status in the year 2000 by Queen Elizabeth II as part of the millennium celebration. Today, the City of Brighton boasts an impressive number of attraction and activities to keep visitors entertained, not to mention the breathtaking views and rich nightlife.
