A day trip to Brighton

On Saturday I took a trip down to Brighton with a friend of mine.
We headed to St Pancras around 9am and took the 1.5 hour train to the vintage seaside resort.

When we got there, we went for lunch at a cafe on the seafront and went on the pier. 



After that we went to the Lanes. The Lanes are famous for the cute vintage one off shops in the heart of Brighton. Nestled in narrow walkways with bunting lining the streets. It's a hidden gem in the town. There are various jewellers, fudge shops and even a Choccywoccydoodah! (Mmm)


We stopped off for Cakes at Catwalk Cakes on Bond Street. It is a pretty small shop but had a lovely selection of cakes and teas on offer. We bought some for take-away and sat on the beach eating it! Such a perfect view!



We went to La Choza for dinner which is a Mexican restaurant on Gloucester Road. I had a chicken burrito and a tequila sunrise :)

After dinner, we headed to the British Airways i360 which is the world's thinnest tower. It opened on the 8th August so it is still fairly new. Tickets are £15 for adults and cheaper for students and children. You can book online 3 days prior for a discounted rate. It runs for 20 minutes during the day and 30 minutes in the evening (starting from 6pm). There is a champagne/drinks bar in the pod. Here are some pictures of the view you get from the top of the tower. 



Our day ended after this and we headed back to Brighton Station for our train back to St Pancras. Such a tiring day!
