brighton pier

Last Saturday, we decided to take a day trip to Brighton, somewhere neither of us had been for years and years. We lucked out with the weather (or rather, I had checked incessantly to make sure it would behave before we went), and packed in long strolls along the beach, delicious food and aimless meanderings around town.

First stop was the ever popular Brighton Pier. It’s what childhood dreams are made of – fried food, sweets, funfair rides, arcade games – it’s all there. We watched brave (or bonkers) men jet-ski around in the water, we tucked into Nutella donuts (as good as it sounds), went on the haunted house ride (let’s just say E had a ringing in his ear for a while after), and loved every minute.

    Lovely photos! I especially love all the retro signs! I have actually never been to Brighton because I grew up in the north of England so we went to beaches like Bridlington and Whitby.

    What an interesting little place – what does London (and surrounding area) not have to offer?

    I read about Brighton in a historical novel once but that's as far as my education about the English sea town goes haha. The pier and boardwalk look like the happening place to be! I love all the colors and how there are street vendors all along the walk area. Those nutella doughnuts look ah-mazing! And you my dear, look gorgeous with your windblown hair. Hope you have a great weekend Miho!
