Brighton and Hove (or Brighton & Hove) is a unitary authority area and city on the south coast of England. It is England's most populous seaside resort.

The city was established when two towns (Brighton and Hove) joined together to become a city.

Brighton and Hove forms part of the Brighton/Worthing/Littlehampton conurbation, the 12th largest conurbation in the United Kingdom. Along this area of the south coast, there is little or no gap of countryside between these large towns and city. Directly to the west is Shoreham-by-Sea, and a short distance to the east are Peacehaven and Newhaven. The city, district and urban areas of Brighton and Hove have the biggest populations in the South East England region.

Brighton and Hove themselves were results of amalgamations:

The football team, Brighton & Hove Albion F.C., predates the unification of the two boroughs by ninety six years.

On 15 October 2004, Brighton and Hove was granted Fairtrade City status.
