More to see in Brighton


There is of course, more to see in Brighton than just the Royal Pavilion.  A stroll a few blocks away will take you through a central park surrounding a fountain.


And a short distance from the park is the Brighton Pier.  I didn't want to miss a stroll out to the end of the pier even if there was a cold wind blowing in off the ocean.

From the pier, you can look along the shoreline at all the hotels built facing the water.  Brighton is a very popular summer vacation spot.














Or, you can try your hand at one of the many games of chance inside the piers 19th Century pavilion.
















Another entertainment option might be a ride on the giant Ferris Wheel at the edge of the beach.  Brighton has a lot to offer the tourist.  If I'm ever in England in the summer time, I might venture down here again and see just how busy the place gets.

Brighton beach is always the beach that the national newspapers show whenever the UK has a 'heatwave'! Great shots.

There is another attraction in May and that is the London - Brighton Mini run. I did it a couple of times, it was brilliant going in convoy with hundreds of other minis. Some great photos you took of the place.

You've brought this place to life for me. I've heard so much about it and have seen pictures of it, but none of those photos were as good as yours. Wasn't there a Neil Simon movie made about this place?

Looks like a beautiful place and I love that last picture.

I must agree with the other commenters. You have brought Brighton to life!

It reminds me my second year as a student not very far from Brighton... it does not seem to have changed a lot but I am probably wrong :-)

I would love to ride the Ferris wheel and take some photos when on top!

That pier is wonderful, so Victorian.
