Brighton can trace its origins back to Brightelmstone which dates back to before the Domesday Book (1086) but developed as a health resort and spa during the 18th century. It was frequently used by the then Prince Regent and became a popular destination for Londoners to escape the city, especially the following the arrival of the railway in the 1840's.
Brighton's traditional economy for its first 700 years was centred on the fishing industry. Land called the Hempshares, the site of the present Lanes) provided hemp for ropes and sails were made from flax which was grown in nearby Hove. Fishing nets were dried and boast were kept on land which became Old Steine and fishermen lived and worked on the foreshore below east cliff. Herring and mackerel were the main products, but plaice, cod and conger eels were also fished.
In the 18th century the economy diversified as the town grew. Small-scale foundries were established, especially in the North Laine area; coal importers such as the Brighthelmston Coal Company set up business to receive fuel sent from Newcastle; and the rise of tourism and fashionable society was reflected in the proliferation of lodging house keepers, day and boarding school proprietors, dressmakers, milliners and jewellers.
Located in south west England the city of Bristol is sometimes referred to as the capital of the West Country of England and is ranked as the fourth most visited destination in England. Although there are many things to do and see all year round, the summer months are perhaps the best time when major festivals are held in the city.
The city is best known for its street art, underground music, cider, maritime history, annual hot air balloon fiesta, aerospace industry and its Georgian and Victorian architecture. Bristol has a lot to offer of its own and is an excellent base for exploring the West Country, with relatively inexpensive accommodation and a huge choice of bars, restaurants and shops. It is one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the South of England, hosting a wide variety of visual arts, theatre, speciality shopping and live music. In recent years, young people have flocked to Bristol thanks to the city's stunning and brilliant music scene - the likes of Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky and Roni Size have contributed some of the most outstanding back catalogue of albums in the history of British music.
