UK Travels: Beautiful Brighton

24/5: Brighton

Waiting for connecting train to Brighton~

First meal at Brighton was at Bill's. I heard that Bill's restaurant serves up good breakfast but we were too late for it so we tried their lunch menu instead.

Starter: Prawn cakes

Pan-fried seabass

Bill's Style Pork Ribs

After lunch, we did some sightseeing nearby.

Brighton Royal Pavilion - a former royal residence

really gorgeous

 Brighton Dome - arts venue

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

just saw this stunt the day before in Bath and here in Brighton, there was another street performer walking on the tightrope and playing a musical instrument.

Brighton Fishing Museum

the famous Brighton Beach

so much calmness and tranquility here

The beach was surprisingly very clean too!

Brighton Wheel

Dessert stop was at Cloud 9. Check out their pretty signature rainbow cake. Whenever I see rainbow cakes, I'll be reminded of how much artificial food colouring there is and I will avoid ordering them.

had their Oreo ice-cream instead.

Brighton's narrow alleyways are so charming

beautiful streets of Brighton

Chanced upon a really crowded chocolate and cake shop at The Lanes and we went in to see what all the hype was about and this was one of the pretty cakes on display!

Had pretty good coffee over at Marwoods. I also tried their brownie which was so chocolatey and yummy.

old flea market

beautiful North Laine, a shopping district

Roly's Fudge Pantry has supposedly the best fudges in Brighton so we specially made a trip there to try them out. I got peanut butter, lemon meringue, salted caramel, and honey fudges which had the "best taste" stickers on them. Their fudges had a crumbly texture and wasn't like those soft textured fudge that your teeth will sink into when you bite into them. I actually prefer the latter more.

Graffiti walls everywhere

What a great way to clear stuff!

St Bartholomews Church

Brighton Open Market
We were there too late and it was closed.

Interesting shophouse

 St Peter’s Church

St Mary the Virgin

After walking around the city, we went back to Brighton Beach to explore Brighton's Pier. I was thrilled to discover an amusement park located at the end of the Pier.

Carousel by the beach

Hello Brighton Pier!

Donuts, churros, milkshakes, hot dogs..! Something funny happened too. Minz got donuts and when she held one up to take a photo of it, a seagull flew over and snatched away her donut hahahaha!

Turbo roller coaster. It was quite expensive at £5 per ride.

The view up there must be fantastic.

Brighton Beach is so beautiful and clean. The streets are so photogenic too. Brighton has got to be my top 3 favourite cities in the UK so far.

Dinner at The Regency Restaurant.
Their Fish & Chips looked really good but the waiter did not recommend it so we got the seafood risotto which was awesome too.

Hot Shellfish Platter - oysters, prawns, mussels, clams, whole lobster, scallops
It has been so long since I had such a scrumptious meal. The £20 was well spent!

Lovely shade of cotton candy pink peeking out from behind the clouds as the sun set.

There was an event happening late in the evening by the beach and it ended with a firework performance.

I don't really have the habit of taking selfies but minz said that selfies are a reminder of how much you've aged or how young you once were when you look back at them haha. So yeah, ending off with a selfie of a younger me.
