It’s no secret that Brighton is one of the UK’s most beautiful cities, so with a love of photography and a need for a summer mini-city break, I knew I had to check it out!
My boyfriend and I spent a couple of days there recently and we loved every second. From its stunning sea views, crazy pier, gorgeous beach huts and creativity threaded through every inch of the city, we couldn’t get enough of it!
We spent much of our visit walking around and taking in the city and its atmosphere (the good vibes are off the scale), so I thought I’d put together a list of my top picks as to the city’s must-see sites!
Brighton’s Lanes make up the city’s historic quarter, dating all the way back to the late 18th century! Lined with independent stores and an Instagram photo waiting to happen at every corner, this is definitely the go-to area for bloggers!
The Beach Huts
Ah yes, Brighton’s iconic beach huts. Also the only place I’ve actually had an outfit shoot for my blog. Woo! Around twenty minutes’ walk from the pier, you’ve got to head towards Hove to get a snap of these beauties no matter what season – their gorgeous colour combinations make for the perfect photoshoot all year round!
The Royal Pavilion
Built as a seaside ‘pleasure palace’ for King George IV, The Royal Pavilion was inspired by a blend of Regency, Indian and Chinese architecture. Basically, Big George wanted a really extra hang out spot for him and his mates to pretend to be more exotic and cultured than they were. Nice.
Alongside it is The Brighton Dome, a performing arts venue built in a similarly striking and stunning style.
This place is mental! Featuring stunning sea views and a massive dome-shaped arcade, Brighton Pier is one of the city’s most well-known landmarks. Bring your coppers and determination and you might walk away with a darn cute soft toy pug.
