    Interesting article on the size of cities in the GB. Brighton considered large!

      Interesting....

      Here you go:

      Megacity: London
      Second cities: Birmingham, Manchester
      Major cities: Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, Sheffield
      Large cities: Belfast, Bristol, Nottingham, Southampton/Portsmouth, Leicester, etc.
      The latter category is incomplete: other cities, like Cardiff, Edinburgh, Middlesbrough, even Brighton or Bournemouth, probably have a claim to be in there, too. Britain only has one city whose population even gets close to 10m, but a couple of handfuls of them are bobbing around the 500,000 mark.

      But the point, in the end, is clear. No way in hell is Sheffield Britain's third city.

      Well, having lived away for 25 years, I can tell you that Brighton most definitely 'feels' large nowadays

      I've always had Brighton as a pretty small city. You can walk from one side of it to the other pretty easily? No chance doing that with somewhere like Nottingham.

      I'd say Nottingham and Brighton have similar feels in terms of the City centre and then they both have massive urban sprawls around them.

      The city now consists of Brighton and Hove, with Portslade thrown in. You also need to start at Saltdean.
      Nottingham has a population of 321,500 (2015)
      Brighton's population is 277,500 (2016)

      Same here. It has never felt large to me

      In terms of surrounding I'd say they're very different. Nottingham has FOUR exits off the M1. There is no chance you could easily walk from one side of Nottingham to the other. With Brighton, you could.
