Ahhh Brighton, that lovely pebbly seaside so close to London (55 minutes by train from Clapham Junction) & so full of memories & fun. We decided to take a trip there while we were home to make some new memories with our daughter as she is now four and old enough to enjoy the delights of Brighton.
We took my mum along too and found ourself a lovely air bnb we had pre booked before we left Madrid. Location and size were perfect. We always use Airbnb when we travel with our daughter, it always offers the most comfortable and relaxed accommodation for us. We’ve never been disappointed, and always found the accommodation to be a really high standard exactly as described.
We loved waking up to a sea view and walking out for coffee each morning breathing in that fresh sea air. It was the perfect calm little escape.
While we were there I also managed to fit in a visit to the Stephen Jones Hat exhibition in Brighton Royal Pavilion. I recommend it so much. An absolutely stunning building to look at, it was even more incredible inside. Unfortunately you’re not allowed to take pictures inside, so all I can say is If you are in Brighton please take a visit there before it closes. The hats are exquisite and you will recognise so many that you have seen on celebrities. I was so excited when I saw Kate Moss’s bunny ears hat there in front of me.
If you haven’t been to Brighton in a while, Or even at all, it’s definitely worth a visit. No matter what the weather, there is always so much to do and so much for families too. My daughter loved the pier, loved all the penny machines I even got my mum playing some of the quiz machines with us & my daughter loved pressing all the buttons. It was so much fun and such a sweet nostalgic way.
We went to The Lanes, had fish & chips on the beach & lots of artisan coffee. Made more memories. Laughed lots and slept well from all the sea air. Pretty much perfect. Oh Brighton you are special & we’ll be back soon.
Thanks for reading,
