Welcome To The Pier!

Oh, hello there friends!

I know, it’s been a while.. I’ve slacked on my posts a fair bit lately & I know, I deserve to have my hand caned. But I PROMISE, I come back with new stories complete with photos (mostly of food) which will allow you all to forgive my absence!

A lot has happened since my last post!
I’ve been to the lovely, sunny resort around the area of Sussex. It’s great! Got a wonderful pier which offers an extremely lively arcade, funfair with everyone’s favourite rides (the Dodge’Ems, Helta Skelta and a very spooky Ghost Train), very British fish & chips, very French crepe stalls & a ‘beach’! “Where is this little treasure”, I hear you ask? Mull my description over & I’m pretty sure you’ll come to the correct answer… of course, it’s Brighton!

“What’s so great about Brighton?”
There’s so much on offer to keep you occupied during your trip. Take a stroll along the pebbled beach, paddle your feet in the sea, lounge around on the deck chairs until you’re ready to make your way to the pier!

I haven’t been to Brighton since I was very little – I used to go up with my grandparents every few weekends. After all these years though, there’s one tradition that will never be forgotten…

TRADITIONAL FISH & CHIPS!
You’re welcome to eat these wrapped up in newspaper, sitting uncomfortably in a deck chair overlooking the sea but the last time I did that a seagull decided it would rob me of a chip & leave a little white, splattered present on my arm as a thank you… Needless to say, I prefer to tuck-in inside the restaurant these days!


It looks great, right? Hence the tradition!
Once your bellies have deflated & you can muster the energy to walk again, revisit your childhood and have a go on one or two of the rides!

Brighton isn’t all about the pier. If you fancy going for a wander around you’ll come across some really cool & quirky shops. You’ll find these treasures down “The Lanes”; a few side roads off the beaten track.

If you’re looking for history, stroll a little further and you’ll come across a beautiful garden area where the Royal Pavilion is situated. The Royal Pavilion was originally built as a seaside retreat for King Geroge IV it has since been revamped with restored gardens, rooms & you can book a tour around the grounds!

Beautiful!

On this visit, I went my mum & brother. My brother lives in Norwich so it was a nice thing for us to do together as a family. Relive some old memories; yes, I got dragged on to the rollercoaster by my brother, while I dragged him on one of the other stomach-churning fairground rides, while my mum stood on the sides laughing at our pained expressions! Just like old times…
