Brighton - A Busy Summer Weekend

Brighton

Brighton has long been the Riviera of England on the south coast. In the past Brighton was a high-class destination but is now a shadow of it's former self though a good day out can be had for many here. The Palace Pier is still the main attraction of the city, a pier stretching quite a distance over the ocean crammed with video games, fast food outlets and, at the far end, amusement rides. Along the coast, in the summer, there are also a large number of other similar attractions and it is not unusual to find various buskers and other entrapeneurs.

Brighton - The Palace Pier

Away from the ocean, there are other attractions including 'The Lanes' which are a series of narrow pedestrian-only (in many cases) streets lined with nicer stores and restaurants (NOT a place to be alone at night, it should be noted).

Brighton Pavillion

The Royal Pavillion is home to various events throughout the year including certain programmes during the Brighton Festival held in early summer which is composed of various cultural events including literary readings, classical music and theatre.
