Brighton is a neighborhood in south Seattle, Washington, part of the greater Rainier Valley district.

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.[1][2]

It is several blocks from the Othello light rail station.[1] The neighborhood was served by the Rainier Avenue Electric Railway from 1891 until it closed in 1937.[2]
