Brighton

I recently spent a sunny bank holiday Sunday down in the seaside town of Brighton. We decided to get the train down from Clapham Junction as trains are very frequent and it only takes just over an hour door to door. I used trainline.com and would recommend booking as far in advance as you can to get the best deals. When you arrive at the station, the pier is only a 10-12 minute walk straight down the main road.

Lucky Beach Cafe

As I had never been to Brighton before, I was unsure where to go to for breakfast/brunch. I started doing some research and came across the Lucky Beach Café. I would recommend if you are ever looking for a restaurant to look it up on Instagram, as it gives you photos from real people.

Vintage Shops

Luckily, the day before I went to Brighton I happened to get some recommendations for good vintage shops in Brighton.  The North Lanes are the main streets for vintage shopping. The main stores I would recommend are To Be Worn Again, Independent Rag and Dirty Harry and all are significantly cheaper than London vintage shops.

Other shops I went to included JuJu Brighton which has great stuff (not vintage) and Kerrie Berrie Beads & Jewellery. Kerrie Berrie is the cutest little shop where you can create your own pieces of jewellery. There are lots of beautiful options and the jewellery and pieces are really affordable.

 

Food for Friends

This restaurant was another recommendation from a work colleague. Food for Friends is a well known, award-winnign vegetarian restaurant in Brighton that is not to be missed. You can book a table in advance and there is the option to sit inside or outside.

Other Recommendations

Some other recommendations that I got that for Brighton included The White Rabbit which is a classic pub where all the locals hang out. There is also The Black Lion which has a nice beer garden and Pike & Pine on St James Street.
