I hope none of you have an irrational dislike for Brighton, because this is my second seaside appreciation post in three months! (See the first here). I went to Brighton this weekend to visit my best friend Holly, and each time I visit I fall in love with the town a little bit more. The weather was so glorious this time, I just couldn't help but get very snap happy and fawn over all of the pebbled beaches and one-off eateries that Brighton has to offer!
I arrived on Sunday afternoon and after getting some gorgeous Japanese food and eating in the Pavillion Gardens, we headed to the beach for the evening.
The next day we took a little wander in The Lanes and had some tasty Mexican food at a place called Dos Sombreros, followed by a quick cupcake in the delightful Angel Food Bakery. We then hopped on the bus over to Hove. It was incredibly hot so we spent a while sunbathing on the Hove Lawns before heading down to the beach to dip our toes in the water.
After getting very tempted to go for an all out swim in the sea, we decided to walk back towards Brighton along the promenade, allowing a peek at the gorgeous Palmeira Square. Can I live here please?
We then got a delicious £3 pizza from a place called Piccolo and headed to the Pavillion Gardens before going home for a night of too many galaxy bars and movies.
Tuesday was my last day in Brighton, so we spent the later part of the day on the seafront again before going into a cordoned off area to watch England's last appearance in the World Cup.
The walk back to the station for my train home was so sunny and cheerful and I couldn't think of anything worse than leaving! Who needs London with a seaside wheel like this?
I'm so lucky that my best friend lives in such a gorgeous place. Though I adore my sandy-beached hometown just a few hours along the coast, I really adore Brighton and would love to live there in the future. I hope you've enjoyed this little tour through my weekend there and I'll leave you with my favourite shot of the weekend; our photobooth picture from Snooper's Paradise against the coloured beach huts of Hove.
