Brighton beach - London's best day tripSaturday, July 19, 2014
We've had a bit of a 'heat wave' in London this past week. It's been humid, sticky, and on most days bright and sunny.
So what better way to indulge the English sun? Why a day out to Brighton beach of course - one of the best known beaches in the UK, and my favourite London day trip...
Getting to Brighton from London is very easy - you simply catch a train from either London Victoria, London Bridge or London St Pancras train stations, and the journey takes approximately one hour. Once your arrive in Brighton, follow the crowds and walk straight down the high street. The high street is on a lovely downhill slope so you'll reach the famous pebbly beach in no time.
Brighton beach has a great cosmopolitan vibe, and in summer there are always hundreds of people out and about enjoying the water, seaside cafés and bars, local art and galleries
We strolled along the waterfront towards Brighton Pier...
- shopping on North Laine
- water sports
- seafront clubs and bars in the evening
- coffee sampling at the many independent cafés
- Brighton Pier for some carnival type entertainment
- and of course every visit to Brighton must include fish and chips on the beach
And a sunset...
