Brighton for a Day

Brighton on the South Coast was much favoured by George IV for his gout and horse riding.  Later Queen Victoria was not so amused. The Royal Pavilion is definitely worth a visit, the Lanes are a little trendy and the pier warrants a stroll around.

Go by train from Blackfriars station and save over 100% on the day return fare.  This is a recently reconstructed station which straddles the River Thames

The Royal Pavilion

A Royal Throne N.B photography is strictly forbidden insdie the Pavilion




The Lanes - antique shops are being displaced by cafes.
 

Today was the annual London to Brighton veteran car run.


Ooops - the wrong hole.

There is an amusement park at the end of the pier.

  2. A good place to go for the day.

    The Royal Pavilion looks quite swanky too.

    1. The Royal Pavillion was really interesting even for Philistines like me!

  3. I'd like to go to Brighton again, haven't been there in ages. We have to align our schedules better… at least we seemed to have been in the same country ;-)

  4. The last time I was here was under the old management during St. Patrick's day. Not a great food experience. The new place is much better. Taxi Brighton to London
