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