Within hours of arriving home from Denmark, I jumped on a train to Brighton for a day trip with friends. They call Brighton the “San Francisco of the UK for its hilly roads and beaches. The weather was sunny, beautiful and I loved every second of it. Once I arrived we grabbed some food, we headed to the pier for carnival games and rides. Coming from Arizona, I hardly get the chance to play on piers so I was like a kid at a carnival. Afterwards we walked around town, and soaked up rays in the park with some beautiful tulips. The day ended with some delicious cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres before heading home.
I’m studying in London and wanting to get to Brighton ASAP. Any must visit spots?
In answer to the comment above – Brighton Pavillion (have a coffee in the pavillion cafe in the grounds – famous folks have drunk coffee there and there is a book written about the cafe), Brighton Eye (see the downs and the sea and everything), the museum (famous for its mid century furniture and ceramics, look at the Willet collection of odd victorian ceramics), The North Laine (not to be confused with The Lanes) a set of streets with independent shops and galleries and a brilliant market on Saturday. That should keep you going!!
Love the post by the way!
