International Studies Abroad ®est. 1987



Location: England


On this excursion, we will travel to Brighton, England, known as London by the sea and as one the cultural and LGBT capitals of England. Brighton has inspired many famous artists and musicians and is well-renowned for its live music scene as well as its art and architecture. Some UK polls place it as the happiest and 'coolest' (not a reference to temperature!) city in England, and its name is undoubtedly among the world's most recognizable beach towns.

Our day trip includes some fun and leisure, to get a sense of how most Brits think of this destination, but we also work in plenty of opportunities to appreciate Brighton's rich history including a visit to the Royal Pavilion. The Royal Pavilion is a former residence built by King George IV and used as a palace for extravagant parties and feasts. It was built in the Indo-Saracenic style prevalent in India for most of the 19th century. The current appearance of the Pavilion, with its domes and minarets, is the work of architect John Nash, who extended the building starting in 1815. It is certainly a site to see during any trip to Brighton.
