Who hasn’t heard of Brighton? Between influencers, Youtubers and fellow Bloggers living there, no wonder I wanted to explore this gorgeous-looking city!
My sister and I had wanted to visit for like 3-4 years so when my mom offered we did a nice girl-trip for probably my last family vacation (though my dad had to work…) we wondered where to go and Brighton was a the top of our list!
Here are the places you should definitely visit if you go to Brighton:
Who doesn’t love a good breath of sea fresh air honestly. Brighton has so many things to see and do by the seafront. The Brighton Band Stand, the British Airways tour and the Donut to only mention of few. There is also the wheel but it wasn’t there when we went. But I think my was the Brighton Pier and just walking along the path to look at shops, restaurants and the beach itself. The Brighton Pier is incredible. There are so many rides and amusements, food, great music, and you get to see Brighton from perspective and take loads of pictures.
The Lanes & North Laine
I loved the Lanes, the beautiful streets with all its gorgeous shops. It felt so cosy and beautiful to look at. It had so many beautiful items (that was when I was the saddest to be poor and only have a carry-on suitcase…) and honestly I felt so inspired there. It felt like we were locals just window-shopping and the workers were so nice and chatty.
The North Laine are really narrow, maze-like streets with even more shops, cafÃ©s and restaurants. We went there on Tuesday and back on Wednesday morning and took a lot more photos because it was empty! I love the shops especially Sass and belle, This is not a butcher’s, Card Factory and Choccywoccydoodah just to mention a few.
Royal Pavilion & Park
We meant to actually only see the park and go to other museums but in the end decided that if we should do one museum it had to be the Royal Pavilion. And boy were we not disappointed. It was a bit expensive (£11,70 per adult) with an additional £2 for audioguides but it was amazing. We couldn’t take photos there so I’ll only show you the outside but honestly it’s a must-do! It was fascinating and I love that it was furnished and looked like you just stepped in another century. The audioguide was very informative and when I heard people without them assuming things, I was even happier to be well-informed.
Other things to do…
- Beach huts – They are so beautiful and it’s blissfully quiet there! You can take lots of photos and pose no problem and the beach is super quiet there.
- 7 sisters – We didn’t go see them unfortunately but our aibnb host advised us to go there.
- Devil’s Dike – Funny story, we got out of the bus on the wrong stop… (a I-told-you-so moment…) but a lot of people love it!
I hope you enjoyed and leave you with (many) more photos…
