Last week me and my friend, Rita visited Brighton and Hove for 2 days. It was a quick visit but definitely worth it and we went home refreshed and fulfilled. After we arrived at the city we walk down from the train station to the British Airways i360 observation tower and experienced the 360-degree views across Brighton. I loved the view of the coast and the city. It remembered me to Venice Beach in LA, probably because of the incredibly good weather.
Then we left our stuff in the Airbnb and drink a lovely coffee next door in Black Bird Coffee. It’s a cute, tiny coffee shop and the coffee is amazing so I recommend to try it if you visit the city. The atmosphere in Brighton is so warming and friendly, this place by the coast would be my dream to live but we all know in the UK it can be very cold, especially by the sea, in winter. I loved the little, narrow streets and the pretty, unique shops but the best was to sit on the beach and listen to the waving sea.
We visited the Royal Pavilion which was the residence of the royal family. Now, the Pavilion and its garden are open for the public and such a lovely place to sit down a little bit and chill. There is also the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery if you’d like to visit. Later, we went to Brighton Pier and watched the sunset and had a lovely chat about life with my high school friend, Rita. Omg! So many memories.
We started the next day with a delicious breakfast and a cup of strong lemon-ginger tea at The Breakfast Club. Compared to the previous day, this day was so windy and cold, but we wanted to explore more in the city and walked around in the Lane area to find some cute houses and graffitis. Then we took some pictures of the colorful beach houses at Hove Beach and spent the last couples of hours with drinking hot tea and eating warm soup to avoid getting cold. Then we started our way back to London and Birmingham, it was such a lovely weekend.
