Brighton is famous as a traditional seaside town and became known as the city of Brighton and Hove in 1997 when it merged with its neighbour Hove. According to the 2011 census it is the most populous seaside resort in England.
The city has an unusual age distribution compared to both national and regional profiles as there are fewer children and older people but a large number of adults aged 20 to 44. This demographic is reflected in the vibrant night life in the city and the wide range of leisure activities, which also attract tourists thoughout the year.
Despite this view of a ‘youthful’ city, Brighton & Hove has a relatively high proportion of people aged 85 or more and over 2400 people aged 90 or more, more than a third of household comprise one person and 22% of people 60+ experience income deprivation.
