The train ride from London to Brighton took about an hour – for only £10 it started at Blackfriars station early in the morning. Brighton is situated on the south coast of England – directly at the sea. On the way to the beach promenade we passed countless small cafés and also the first sightseeings were not long in coming, like the small „Clock Tower“ or the „St. Paul’s Church“.
Arrived at the boardwalk, we first enjoyed the view over the sea and the promenade. Even though it was a little cloudy, every now and then the sun flashed through the clouds and let us take some great pictures. At the boardwalk there are one after the other „Fish & Chips“ restaurant and one can eat many sea specialities! 🙂 A must is the Brighton Pier, a jetty that stretches out to the sea and on which a kind of small amusement park is built. Here you can find rides, cotton candy & Co. From the pier you can enjoy the view of Brighton’s skyline – with the typical Brighton Weel – a small Ferris wheel directly at the sea.
But not only the beach promenade of Brighton speaks for itself, also the artists‘ quarter in the city centre is worth a visit. Here, the „Royal Palace“ can be admired. There are also „The Lanes“, small alleyways in which there is a lot to discover. Small boutiques or pastry shops that sell small delicacies as for example delicious macarons. *yummi*. Maybe I will go to Brighton again, if the weather is a little better!
