Flight Paths: England – Sussex

With Will, plane fanatic from the tender age of 5, Vincent explores Brighton. It was here that the concept of the seaside resort was born in the 19th century. On the coast, Vincent visits the Belle Tout lighthouse, an architectural masterpiece which has saved hundreds of sailors in a particularly dangerous area. Then back to Brighton to delve into the extravagance of the Royal Pavilion, the incredible palace home to the Thousand and One nights, built at the request of the highly eccentric King Georges V in 1821.
