With its four-mile promenade, Blue Flag beach, independent shops and visitor attractions, Brighton is a very popular city.

In the summer months, Brighton is one of the busiest places in the UK. And, according to a new study, it's one of the areas that experiences the most tourism-related pressure.

The study, from Hey Discount, has analysed popular tourist spots around the UK on factors such as the number of holiday rental properties, the increase in house prices and the estimated time to buy a house to reveal the areas where tourists are having the biggest impact.

Brighton ranks ninth in the study, behind places such as Bath, the Lake District and Bournemouth.

The study gave Brighton a total tourist-pressure score of 6.67/ 10. In comparison Bath, which is at the top of the list, scored 8.35/10.

The study claims Brighton has a total of 4,205 rental properties - causing further complications for locals hoping to get onto the property ladder as house prices have also risen 18.60% in the last ten years.

At the start of 2023, Brighton also experienced a search increase of 83.50% from tourists looking to visit the area.
