Brighton

Spring has arrived in the UK and the warmer days are perfect for the beach! It was high time for a trip out of London to get some fresh air. An hour train ride south of London is the the seaside town of Brighton. During the Georgian era, it was a fashionable resort for Londoners to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life. In 2017, we visited for the very same reasons…

Day 1: Brighton Pier and Royal Pavilion

Built in stages between 1787 and 1815 as a retreat for George, Prince of Wales, the Royal Pavilion is a strange sight with its towering minarets and wide domes. The architect, John Nash, was responsible for other famous landmarks such as Regent Street, Buckingham Palace, and Carlton House Terrace. This place was a strange but lovely spot to stop and enjoy the sunset.
