Life in Brighton

Brighton is undoubtedly one of the best cities in England for students and creative professionals alike. It’s a city by the sea – and the WaterBear campus is situated at the very heart of it. Check out our recommendations for some top things to do in Brighton, below:

 

 

Brighton Beach
Brighton’s seafront is the perfect location to soak up the sun in the summer, walk along the prom or check out the amazing cafes and bars with a sea view. You’ll find nightclubs, stretches of pebble beach, water sports, the famous West Pier, Brighton Pier and The British Airways i360.

 

The North Laine
Brighton’s renowned North Laine area is right on WaterBear’s doorstep. It’s small streets and alleyways are packed full of quirky boutiques, vintage shops, tempting cafes, bars and restaurants. North Laine has one of the largest selections of independent shops and is always chock-full of activity. It’s also the perfect place to grab a great coffee and watch the world go by.

 

Nightlife
Brighton has vibrant nightlife culture, with large number of clubs and music venues offering something for everyone. You’ll find amazing pubs, restaurants, independent cinemas and an amazing live music scene.

 

Music
Music forms part of the essence of Brighton. You’ll always be able to find something to listen to or get involved with. The city is home to diverse range bands and artists, and you’ll find gigs on every night of the week with something to suit everyone’s taste. The city is also home to The Great Escape Festival, one of the largest festivals for new music in the world, where more than 450 new and emerging artists from all over the world are showcased each year.

A word from our patron...

I'm very proud to be a patron of WaterBear. It's a wonderful place, and a vital one. Their work is essential in developing the careers of the next generation of our creative industries, both on the stage and behind the scenes. It's exciting and humbling for me to be around so much passion and energy! I'm looking forward to seeing you all at graduation!
