HOW TO SPEND A LONG WEEKEND IN BRIGHTON


When it comes to Brighton you can't help but feel amazed by the beautiful and charming seaside town. So when I got the chance to finally book a mini holiday with my mum and aunt I had to go to Brighton. There are lanes adorned with coffee shops, there is a pier with the most amazing arcade and of course the lovely sea that's always too cold to swim in but I still go in anyway. I spent 3 days exploring all of the seaside town so much that my feet ached. So here is a mini guide on how to spend your time in Brighton. When I visit again, which I will do... I will do more posts about places to visit but for now here are my favourites. 

WHERE TO SHOP

STARFISH

Starfish is the first vintage shop I found whilst strolling through the streets of the North Laines. The shop had an appealing interior where the walls were adorned with vintage wooden boxes, signs and of course rails full of vintage clothes.


BEYOND RETRO

Beyond retro was one of my favourite vintage shops in Brighton. It's a little harder to find but it is totally worth it when you do. I bought several vintage silk scarves from here. The large shop was full to the brim mostly with vintage clothing and accessories and wouldn't be complete without the photo booth.


SNOOPERS PARADISE

A place I could and have strolled in for hours. Snoopers Paradise is full of vintage cameras, clothing, bits and bobs and basically anything you can think of and again has a beautiful vintage photo booth that is paired with lots of accessories to amuse yourself with.

WHERE TO EAT

JULIEN PLUMART 

When I found this patisserie my mouth watered at the site of the delicate and handmade treats and macaroons. At reasonable prices Julien Plumart is surely not a place to miss.


JOLLIFFES

We sat in the corner of this cafe for a long time whilst sipping tea, or coffee in my case and filling ourselves up with cake. Very good sized portions of cake...I must say we were very pleased. I liked the simple interior and mouth watering cake and will definitely be visiting again.


INFINITY FOODS KITCHEN

The food at Infinity Foods was delicious and did I mention vegan?! I tried the tofu and avocado houmous sandwich which I loved whilst I sat outside with my mum and aunt as they sipped on their tea. Although small the interior is gorgeous! So if you love vegan food this is a very lovely place to stop for a quick lunch.


THE PLANT ROOM COFFEE 

I was drawn to The Plant Room because of how simply charming and fresh the interior was. Plants were dotted around the place and they even had a shop that sold vintage style plates amongst other things. Outside there was also a little square adorned with tables and chairs with a fountain in the centre. What more could you want whilst enjoying a coffee?

WHERE TO VISIT

THE PIER

I'm sure undoubtedly that the pier is on everyones list of where to go when visiting Brighton but I'm going to add it anyway. My favourite part is the large lit up sign and the arcades...how can you not love the arcades?! Although adorned with commercial shops and a henna tattoo shop there is a very nice restaurant in the middle which does an awesome salad. Not to mention the rides that my mum was too scared to go on. I'll get her on them one day!


THE ROYAL PAVILLION & GARDEN

The Royal Pavillion is not only beautiful to look at but is also surrounded by charming gardens. I got a lovely picture of a squirrel eating a nut when visiting and I'm planning to visit the museum on my next visit. 


MECHANICAL MEMORIES MUSEUM & ARCADE

One of my favourite places that I visited was the penny arcades that was by the seashore. Full of real vintage and antique arcade games that cost between 5p and 20p. It was a lot of fun and I even won some sweets.


I hope you've enjoyed finding out cool places to visit in Brighton! Even though the weather was mostly terrible I really enjoyed my trip to Brighton and I can't wait to go back. 

Have you ever visited Brighton? If so what did you like about it?
