For Indian passport holders, the application for a UK visa goes through VFS Global - the official partner of UK Visa and immigration where visa applications are organised and submitted to official authorities for consideration. You will need to have your flight tickets and hotel booked before you submit your application, with copies of both included in the application form (submitted online and verified in person). Supporting documents need to be provided to certify the financial stability of the applicant. Details of past visas must be logged in. All of these documents and papers are to be submitted during your appointment at the VFS Global centre, where a necessary digital photo scan and fingerprint scan are also facilitated.

There are plenty of flight options from India to Brighton. However, direct non-stop flights are not operational on the route as of now.
From India - The international airports of Bombay, Delhi and Bengaluru offer direct, non-stop flight options to the international Heathrow airport that serves London. Once you arrive in London and have explored the city to its fullest, you can plan your visit to Brighton.
From London - Brighton can easily be added to the travel spots of your London vacation. It makes for an excellent weekend destination away from the city life of London. Luxury coaches operated by the National Express will get you to Brighton in a couple of hours and are a comfortable way of travelling.
Another option that offers better sightseeing experiences is the train service from London to Brighton. Services are run by Thameslink and Southern Railway from London to Brighton, starting from major stations like London Bridge and London Victoria. The ride will have you chugging past the wonderful countryside of ‘England’s greenest hills’ before you enter the seaside town with travel time of around one hour in all.
Of course, you could ditch public transport altogether and opt for a road trip. It’s only 85 kilometres away from the city centre of London.
