Travelling to Brighton

, / 2
I went to Brighton for a weekend away with some friends… I will try and type up exactly what I remember of it – this post could be short.

Brighton is a seaside town in England for those of you who don’t know. Famous for its seagulls and Brighton Pier, and much more, there is also a beach, yes – a beach in England!

Driving from London to Brighton can take anywhere from 2 hours to… well depending on traffic, who knows. Luckily for me and my friends, we got to Brighton in just over 2 hours. Eight guys, all 20 years old, away in Brighton for one night only, lovely.

We took a couple hours to walk around Brighton, take the tour of Brighton. Must say I am a fan of Brighton as a town, small and compact but a lot going for it. I liked the laid back feel the Brighton, very different to life in London certainly.

Me and my friends went out to a few bars and clubs, found that security in particular were not so friendly to “guys from London” as they said. I don’t know, maybe it is something I’m missing, but still we had a great time and great night in Brighton.

Accommodation in Brighton can be found cheap and cheerful; we stayed in a small Bed and Breakfast for around 15 pounds per person, lovely price to pay for the UK. Plus I have the feeling that you can get even cheaper but we were happy to pay that. Food is what you would expect in the UK, good old fish and chips; I hate fish so just give me some chips thanks.

Most things in Brighton are within walking distance I found or a cheap taxi/cab ride away or you can always get on the bus. Travelling around Brighton is relatively easy compared to what I am used to in London. Travelling in London is a nightmare.

Travel tips when travelling to Brighton – don’t under no circumstances, don’t ever go to Brighton without a jacket unless it is SUMMER, and not just British summer, I mean real summer. I had no jacket, just 2 t-shirts, and I was freezing on Brighton beach the next day. At least my friends had fun watching me shivering as I ate my burger and chips on the seaside.

Overall I would say that Brighton is lovely town, despite only having a t-shirt, I really enjoyed my stay in Brighton and would highly recommend anyone visiting the UK to check out Brighton. It is close to London and offers something a lot different to the hustle and bustle of London.

So here is my little travel guide to Brighton. Hope you enjoyed it, remember you can always contact us to leave a little message; I am always interested to hear what you guys have to say.

    Woo Brighton! (where I’m from :D) I personally find there’s not alot to do here and it sometimes gets quite claustrophobic how small it is! But there is a great nightlife, I’ll give it that.

    I didn’t realise it was so cold here though…. I thought we had a tropical paradise here on the southern coast!
