Brighton has been named the "best party city" in the UK.

The city was also identified as having the most bars, nightclubs and pubs per 10,000 residents.

This was after a study analysed the largest cities in the country by population.

The research, by Bonus Finder, judged the areas based on the number of pubs, number of nightclubs and bars, hotels, average price of a pint and average price of a hotel room.

A spokesman for Bonus Finder said: "The seaside resort of Brighton and Hove is officially the best party city in the UK, boasting a perfect score of 10 out of 10.

"Brighton offers a wide variety of bars and nightclubs, with 8.49 venues per 10,000 residents, and an impressive 24.46 pubs per 10,000 residents.

"There is also plenty to do, with a wide range of live music venues, theatres, comedy clubs, and the popular Grosvenor Casino opposite the iconic Brighton Pier. 

"With Brighton’s LGBTQ+ inclusive atmosphere and legendary events such as Carl Cox on the Beach and Fatboy Slim’s legendary DJ sets, a night out in Brighton promises an unforgettable experience."

Newcastle Upon Tyne ranked as the second best and Doncaster was ranked third.

London was ranked the UK's worst party city.
