Brighton is a primarily residential neighborhood in south Seattle, Washington, part of the greater Rainier Valley district and centered about a mile and a half south of the Columbia City neighborhood.[1]

The neighborhood was settled by English immigrants in the 1880s, who named it "Brighton Beach" after the English resort city of Brighton in East Sussex.[2][3]

It is several blocks from the Othello light rail station.[2] The neighborhood was served by the Rainier Avenue Electric Railway from 1891 until it closed in 1937.[3]
