The Royal Pavilion is a former royal palace built as a home for the Prince Regent during the early 19th century. Similar styled buildings in Brighton include the Sassoon Mausoleum, which is now in use as a supper club. Brighton Palace Pier features a funfair, restaurants and arcade halls. Brighton clocktower was built in 1888 for Queen Victoria’s jubilee.

Volk’s Electric Railway runs along the inland edge of the beach from Brighton Pier to Black Rock and Brighton Marina, and is the world’s oldest operating electric railway. The Grand Hotel was built in 1864 and its nighttime blue lighting is particularly prominent along the foreshore.

Brighton has a 5.4-mile (8.7 km) expanse of shingle beach littered with bars, restaurants, nightclubs, sports facilities and amusement arcades mainly along the central section between the West and Palace Piers. This section of the beach can be visited by over 150,000 people at weekends in high summer.

Brighton museums include Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Preston Manor, Booth Museum of Natural History, Brighton Toy and Model Museum, and Brighton Fishing Museum.

The Lanes form a retail, leisure and residential area near the seafront. The Lanes contain clothing stores, jewellers, antique shops, restaurants and pubs. The North Lane area is a retail and leisure area which contains a mix of businesses dominated by cafés, independent and avant-garde shops, bars and theatres.
