Exploring the city of Brighton, which is 30 minutes from campus by bus, is a lot of fun. My favorite places are the Royal Pavilion and Preston Park. The Lanes and the North Laine are both really cute and old shopping areas that also have good cafes and pubs. The beach and the Brighton Pier are really fun as well, especially on a sunny day. - Christina Green
