Brighton Pride is the biggest event so far!

Brighton’s 2010 Pride celebration was the biggest in its 18-year history, with more than 160,000 people taking part in the festivities.

Sussex Police said Saturday’s event was peaceful and successful, with very few incidents.

The parade left the seafront at 1100 BST and made its way to Preston Park, where the event continued until the evening.

If you want to explore Brighton’s alternative culture as well as Brighton’s heritage and tourist sites make sure you book your stay at umi’s seafront hotel in Brighton, we’re probably the most central hotel being only minutes walk from the train station at the bottom of West Street.
