Brighton's beach is a welcome escape from the big city of London.
The weather in London can get a bit dreary so if you need to escape somewhere for a little sea breeze and sunshine – Brighton is the place to be!
Located in East Sussex and famed as a weekend beach site for city-tired Londoners, Brighton is lined with pebbled beaches, bursting with flea markets, colourful stores, and warm sunshine. The atmosphere is relaxing, and everyone is laid-back and friendly.
Near the pier, you can find amusement rides to go on, candied apples to sink your teeth into, and beach chairs to lounge in while you watch the birds rest on the railings. There are flea markets and small stores with vintage clothes, books and knick-knacks, and even skate-boarding dogs!
But the best thing about Brighton is undoubtedly the seaside.
I’ve spent all my life living in Southeast Asia, and have never seen a rocky beach before (majority of the beaches in Asia are sandy beaches), and was thrilled by the sight of pebbles lined up all the way to the shore. I must have spent an hour lying on the pebbles, soaking up the sun.
As the time came to bid Brighton farewell, we raised up our hands to a cheery ‘Bye, bye!’
