Brighton is a seaside town on the south coast of England. It developed as a seaside resort in the late eighteenth century due to the patronage of the Prince Regent, the later George IV, who constructed his Royal Pavilion in the town. It was connected to London by rail in 1841, allowing its tourist industry to expand. In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Lydia Bennet elopes with Wickham from Brighton.
