Brighton in Photos


I stayed in Brighton for a few days with my boyfriend recently and I had a lovely time. I went to Brighton a year ago with my Mum and I wrote this simple summary post, so this time round I wanted to focus on the photos I had taken, not only because there was so many but I believe pictures describe moments and memories better than words ever do.


As we went for three days we made the most of what the town has to offer, including an hour long traffic queue along the sea front on arrival just so we could get to the car park.

On the day of arrival we walked down to the front as you do as we had time before we could check in our hotel. It was a late Sunday afternoon so it was rather quiet and relaxing although I smashed my phone to smithereens on the concrete pavement attempting to vlog. Once we were able to check in the hotel I was soon to empty my suitcase and organise everything into drawers and onto hangers. We chose to make the most of the free leisure facilities available to us as guests and went down to the swimming pool, bare in mind I hadn't been in a pool for more than a year and I'm not a strong swimmer I spent most of the time standing in the shallow end. After swimming, we got ready and walked down the road to JB's American Diner for dinner.

The second day we decided to use to explore and spend hours browsing through shops both big and small and we even got my phone fixed, you can't go to Brighton and not take loads of Instagram photos right? After shopping we walked through the pavilion gardens and then heading to the sea front to start taking photos for my outfit post before it got far too cold and we headed to our hotel room and watched Eastenders with chips from Harry Ramsden's.

 On the third and final day we went on to the pier where we went inside the arcades for some fun and games before heading to Brighton's sea life center which by he way is amazing and makes my local aquarium look like a fish tank. 


I would love to live in Brighton for a short period of time, the fact you can walk everywhere without feeling like you've just taken part in the Olympics is amazing. I do live in an area surrounded by some of the best beaches in Britain but there's something about Brighton's sea front that is honestly perfection. The sun is always setting in the direction of the west pier, the lighting at night never looks boring and although the sea breeze is chilly in March, I can imagine in the summer feels heavenly. 


It was very saddening that we had to go home and I'm sure I'll visit again next year. I definitely want to visit before Christmas as the small shops are the perfect places to purchase decorations and unique gifts. I do however want to stay in a different hotel and I definitely want to eat out more, it's just a struggle for a fussy eater like me, so if you have a recommendation then let me know in the comments.

What do you think of Brighton? x

  3. Gorgeous photos. I love Brighton but despite the fact that it's not that far away and is super easy to get to, I don't go nearly as often as I should. Where is that last rainbow roof photo taken?
