YouTubers are highly influential, and though you mostly see them through your screens, there is the chance of seeing them in person. You can find popular YouTubers in places like New York or California, but you can also find them in the charming British city of Brighton.
Here are some of the best YouTubers that live in Brighton worth watching:
1. Pewdiepie (Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg)*
Pewdiepie, born on 24 October 1989, held the position of the most subscribed YouTuber from 15 August 2013 to late 2019.
In addition, he was the second overall and first individual creator to receive the Red Diamond Creator Award commemorating his achievement of 100 million subscribers, which is no small feat.
This Swedish YouTuber/streamer was primarily known for his gameplay and comedic videos, some of his old classics relating to Amnesia, Goat Simulator, and Happy Wheels. He mostly uploaded this content when he initially registered his YouTube channels in 2010.
Over a few years, his content began maneuvering away from Let’s Plays and more towards vlogs, comedic shorts, formatted shows, and music videos.
Currently, with 111 million subscribers and 28.5 billion views, Felix has semi-retired from YouTube, stating that he only wishes to upload for enjoyment rather than a career.
After many years of consistency and dedication, he has finally settled down, having moved away from Brighton to Japan with his wife, Marzia.
Even though he no longer lives in Brighton, he spent so many years there that this list would go amiss without him and Marzia.
