Brighton

For two Novocastrians (residents of Newcastle, Australia), Brighton is a reminder of all the things we love about home.

Maybe it’s the independent homewares shops, maybe it’s the small-batch roasted coffee, maybe it’s the sound of seagulls… It’s definitely that feeling you get when you look out over the horizon and breathe in salty air.

It was a quick, spontaneous, mid-week trip, (we were there less than 24 hours), and it was the perfect getaway!

So… here’s how the trip went down.

First stop: Brighton Pier. Because, you’re in Brighton after all.

Then, Dinner.

We ended up at The Mesmerist – who describe themselves as “The most unconventional Bar in Brighton’s Lanes”. Around 9:30 a live jazz band kicked in, and some serious swing dancers let loose.

Sleep, then brunch. You can’t rush Brighton. A late start and brunch at egg & spoon is the perfect way to not rush. Also, they serve breakfast until 3pm, like every good cafe should.

Then, the pier, (again). 
By now it’s raining, but hey, it’s England. Time for a pier, some donuts and some amusement rides.

After this, it was time to take our damp selves onto a train and go home, leaving Brighton behind.

The coastal, colourful and eclectic city is absolutely delightful. You should experience it for yourself.
