Over the Easter holiday – I know! I’m slowly but surely catching you up on everything! – we traded in our usual full-weekend trip with my sister and her husband for a mini-holiday in London. Without too firm a plan, we gave ourselves the opportunity to either sit and do absolutely nothing or hop on a train at the last minute for a little adventure.
It was probably naive to think that we wouldn’t do anything at all, and before long a day trip to Brighton was formulating in our heads. I’d never been, and though the seaside can’t compare to the ones I’m used to, I’m always game for a little fresh air and a new place to visit!
As you can tell from the photos, the weather was not on our side. It was windy and rainy and just at the point where it was a bit uncomfortable to try to battle the elements without it being full on bad weather. However, we were determined to make it to the pier at the very least because who can resist a good seaside pier?
After, we filled up on some huge burgers at No. 32 as a reward for our efforts before taking a quick swing by the Royal Pavilion and heading back to London. I can’t make too many recommendations from this trip to Brighton as we spent a lot of our time trying to stay warm and dry, but I can absolutely say that you should check out No. 32 if given the chance. The space is set up so well and if you sit on the second floor you truly feel as though you have your own private enclave separate from the rest of the world. We’ve obviously got to go back as we have so much of Brighton left to discover, and No. 32 will be high on our list!
I hope you enjoyed this mini-glimpse at Brighton! I’m crossing our fingers for good weather and a bit more energy next time that we go, but what we did manage to see and do has us hooked anyway!
