(Travel) One day trip to Brighton, UK

by - Wednesday, October 04, 2017

 Flying alone is never a fear to me ever since I embarked that journey in 2015.
Flying to London alone is my longest lone ranger's flight journey ever.
Was I scared? Was I nervous? I was, a little but frankly speaking, I kind of enjoy the solo time on flight.

No noise, no conversation.
Just me and my personal time.

Back to the main topic of this post - One day trip to Brighton, UK

 Costa Coffee all day er day.

With my favourite Skinny Latte, of course.

 No tube but the National Rail.

 The return ticket costed me £27.60 and the entire journey from London to Brighton takes only one (1) hour.

 I couldn't resist the temptations of freshly baked savoury Pretzel!

Sea Salt and Black Pepper Pretzel ftw!

Destination of the day - Brighton station.

Brighton is a seaside resort on the south coast of England. It is part of the ceremonial county of East Sussex, within the historic county of Sussex.

 This mural managed to capture my attention.

A really good one, I must say. ROFL.
 Roaming around Brighton is easy.

It is just a simple quiet town with shops, beach and some attractions to visit.


 #1 : The Lanes

 The Lanes - Intersections of small shops consist of food places, jewellery shops, antique shops and more.

For those who love to take pictures, this is a very good spot to visit.


Apparently this place is very famous of their creatively made cakes and chocolate sculptures.

 I was attracted by the chocolate sculptures, actually.
Kid you not, these are pure chocolate sculptures!
I was impressed with the artworks!

They do ship worldwide though. If you are keen, you may visit their website (Link: HERE).

 After some walks around The Lanes, we decided to make a pit stop at this place named Dum Dum.

 It was my first time trying Cronut (Croissant + Doughnut).
This is really good.
The layers of chocolate with the chocolate cream flowing every bite you take.

 #2 : The Royal Pavilion

 The Royal Pavilion, also known as the Brighton Pavilion, is a Grade I listed former royal residence located in Brighton, England. Beginning in 1787, it was built in three stages as a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales, who became the Prince Regent in 1811. It is built in the Indo-Saracenic style prevalent in India for most of the 19th century. The current appearance of the Pavilion, with its domes and minarets, is the work of architect John Nash, who extended the building starting in 1815.

 #3 : A must-visit Brighton Pier

 Be careful of sea gulls.

They do snatch food.

 The best thing ever is to listen to the sound of sea waves while chatting with your best friend.

I always love the peaceful quiet feeling by the seaside.
The sound of the waves calm me down.

However, Brighton Pier is also a family friendly place as they are well-packed with amusement park that allows the family to spend their precious time together here.

#4 : Brighton Beach
How can we not visit the beach but only the pier?

This is not ordinary beach with sandy beach but small stones and rocks.

What else can you do at the beach?

Pictures time!
Have you ever heard that United Kingdom is a very "Instagrammable" place to visit?
Here's why.

Other than taking tons of pictures, I would suggest you enjoying the scrumptious yummy Authentic British Fish and Chips by the seaside. (while worrying the sea gulls might snatch away your food)

Listening to the melody played the sea waves, enjoying the wind while feasting on the yummy food.

My favourite moment.

This is only the second post summarised from my one-week trip to London, United Kingdom.
Of course, more to come.
