Without a doubt one of the reasons we know you’ll love studying with us is the fact our Central Campus is located right in the heart of Brighton’s world-famous North Laine area. This area is a sub-cultural hub of independent shops and eateries and is the first port of call for ‘in the know’ visitors. You’ll find record shops, vintage fashion shops, music shops, art galleries, unique cafés and some of Brighton’s coolest pubs. No matter how long you live in Brighton, you will never tire of North Laine. The central location of the College affords you the luxury of being within walking distance of all of the city’s main amenities - the award-winning city library is only five minutes walk away, the train station is visible from the college and you can be strolling on one of the most famous beach strips in the country within ten minutes of the college.
As well as being famous for being an exceptionally tolerant, open-minded and diverse city, Brighton is considered to be one of the most dynamic and exciting locations in the UK and with good reason. How many cities would let their favourite superstar DJ (Fatboy Slim) host a free party on the beach for 250,000 people? We have international music and arts festivals, major theatres, three cinemas, championship football and county cricket, a city marathon, beach life and an unrivalled relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere.
For foodies, whatever their favourite cuisine, there are more restaurants per capita in Brighton than any other UK city other than London. Brighton pub food, which always includes tasty vegetarian options, is generally of a very high standard. In other words, you’re unlikely to go hungry here!
There are also areas of tranquillity where you can study in peace or just relax - including city centre parks, the Pavilion Gardens and the famous beach. Another great thing about Brighton is the city’s proximity to the wide-open spaces of the South Downs National Park. Jump in a car, train or bus and you can be roaming the tranquil Downs within fifteen minutes of leaving the centre of Brighton. You really do get the best of both worlds living here - vibrant bustling city and serene countryside, all within a radius of five miles. Brighton has too much going on to fit everything on these few pages, but rest assured, you will have the time of your life living and studying here.
