Brighton is on the south coast of England, just 30 minutes from London Gatwick airport and less than an hour from central London. Olivet is in the center of the city with classrooms overlooking the sea. It takes about 3 minutes to walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the shopping center.
Once a small fishing village, Brighton grew quickly between 1750 and 1850 when the Prince Regent (later King George IV) came to live here. You must visit the Royal Pavilion, his fantastic seaside palace with Indian domes and Chinese style interior.
Now it’s a lively, cosmopolitan city. A center for music, art, education, entertainment, tourism, business and much more. But you can just sit and watch the sea! You may see one of the famous stars from TV or film who live here.
Or you can shop for antiques as you wander along the little old streets and between the historic buildings in the Lanes; the old town area.
The city is surrounded by the beautiful South Downs. You will find peace and quiet as you walk up and down the gentle hills with wonderful views of the English countryside and the sea. You may like to stop for an English cream tea or a drink in an old English pub.
