Day Trippin’ to Brighton

I woke up and peeked outside… the cars were covered in splashes of rain.  ‘Oh no!  It can’t be raining on a day trip day’ I thought so I grabbed a light jacket and headed to London Bridge, where I was meeting my friend.  We jumped on the train and chatted for the hour long train journey to Brighton and smiled as we saw the Welcome to Brighton sign.  We were here… and so was the sun!  There really was no need for the light jacket!  I ended up having to carry it round for the whole day.

What’s the first thing you do when you arrive in Brighton?  Head to the sea!  We spotted it, which is always a lovely feeling and were soon greeted by the unforgettable smell of the sea; salty and fresh.  We walked on the pebbles, until there were too many pebbles in my sandals.  By this time I was regretting not bringing any suncream so we headed back into the shopping area to grab some factor 30 before heading to The Lanes.  The Lanes is a small shopping area of curving streets with mainly jewellery shops.DSC01904 DSC01905 DSC01906 DSC01907 DSC01908 DSC01909 DSC01912 DSC01913 DSC01914

Then it was time for lunch.  A trip to the beach is not complete without fish n chips for lunch with a beach view so that’s exactly what we did.  We then headed to Brighton Pier and had a look in the arcades.DSC01915DSC01931 DSC01919 DSC01935

Then for another sit on the beach while watching the hungry seagulls gracefully swooping for people’s fish n chips.  And lastly another look around the shops before heading back to London.DSC01933DSC01936

Have you been to Brighton?  Did you forget your suncream too?
