Brighton is part of the City of Brighton & Hove which was formed from towns and villages such as Portslade, Hove and other local villages. You can find mention of Brighton as an ancient settlement far back as the Domesday Book. By 1086 it was known as a health resort and when the railway arrived in 1841 its reputation was as a destination for Day-Trippers.
