A Day Trip to Brighton

When you're in London and you miss the sea,
you hop on a train and head to Brighton.

Being just one hour away by train {two by car},

Brighton is one of the best options for a day trip from London.

Here's why...

Brighton Pier, A Mum in London

The Pier

Standing there since 1823,  
Brighton Pier is a time machine,
guaranteeing a quick trip back to the '50s & '60s. 

The vintage shops, ice cream parlours & arcades 
will give you a good dose of old fashioned fun. 

Brighton Beach, A Mum in London

The Beach

From toddlers to grandparents,

everyone loves Brighton beach.

It's the ideal destination to:

1. Throw pebbles in the sea & collect shells.
2. Have a romantic 'prosecco/sushi/watch the sunset' picnic.
3. Munch on fish & chips
while the kids run free on the beach.

The 'Take It Easy' Feel

Brighton is a city with an ├╝ber cool feel.

From its outdoor cafes, which are always full,

to the seafront fish & chips shops,
everyone seems to take it easy
{at least easier than in London}.

Practical Brighton Info

London-Brighton train tickets start from £10.

If you go to Brighton by car beware:

parking is not easy on a sunny day.

Brighton's exotic/Russian-like Royal Pavilion

is certainly worth a visit.
That would not be the case of the Marina
{unless you're a fan of '70s commercial complexes}.

Best things for kids in Brighton:

the old boats at the seafront,
the fun fair on the pier & the Aquarium
{both quite costly}
or the free, new & very nice playground at the Level.
