Brighton is England’s most famous seaside city, not more than an hour away from the capital, and filled with character! It’s known for its seaside charm, and last Sunday I made my way down to explore this beautiful city! Here’s a quick guide of what to do and see in Brighton!
I simply took a train from Victoria Station, it took about an hour and cost me £12. I used the TrainLine app to find out departure times and book tickets, making it really easy to get there and back. Prices vary depending on when you wanna go, so have a look around and see what best suits you!
The main thing to keep in mind is the weather, try going on a sunny day! being so close to the sea the winds are often in full force, but the city is enjoyable throughout the seasons.
Things to do
The Brighton Pier is undoubtedly the main attraction for most visitors, but there are plenty of other things to see and do as well! The laneways are full of great British bands, a perfect place to explore if you like music! The North Laine is where you’ll find most vintage shops and cute little boutiques. If you’re looking to do something a bit different, check out the night performances at Komedia comedy club! The Royal Pavilion gives great insight to the city and why/when it was created, The Brighton Wheel gives you a fantastic view of the city, and the beach is of course, a not to be missed!
Where to eat and drink
You can’t go on a day trip and not explore where to eat and drink, and if there’s one thing Brighton does well, it’s food! There are plenty of restaurants along the Lanes and along beach, we stopped off at Taste for some fish ‘n’ chips, and not only is it super cozy eating by the sea, but the food was really fresh and delicious.
If you’re looking for some good breakfast to start off your day, Silo is a great place for your first stop. Here you can fill up on a big, delicious, healthy breakfast! Terre à Terre is a good option if you’re looking for a great vegetarian restaurant, this is the place to go. It’s located in the center, mid-priced, and a great stop for lunch or dinner. The Salt Room is one of the more fancy eats in Brighton, specializing in meat and fish. A perfect place for a more sophisticated dinner.
