Bristol is a colorful student city with a lively nightlife, Brighton offers a combination of the same entertainment as London a fresh sea breeze, as well as the not too distant and historic coastal town of Cardiff.However, you will very quickly find yourself at home in every city because although many things are different there is something very familiar about each of the cities.
