On my recent gallivanting through Europe, I decided to spend the day in Brighton. This prepossessing seaside city in East Sussex has long been a popular day trip for Londoners. The capital was proving her critics right and sulked under grey gloom for weeks. I felt like I needed something a little brighter and so I hopped on a train in search of elusive vitamin D and headed to South East England’s shores.
Brighton teeters on the brink between Victorian detail and urbanism. Sadly now known as the homeless capital of the UK, the contrast and grunge of this quirky place is home to artists and sensitive creative types who flock to the mild climate and colourful lanes. The iconic pier drew me in, an arcade and ice cream what more could a guy want.
When in London, I’d highly recommend a train ride down to this corner of the world. Where London is a hotel breakfast buffet with a dizzying array of choices, many good and even more not. Brighton is the tiny café, with 3 menu items, each will have you thinking up excuses to have more!
The They’re Wonted team have been busy with new pieces and campaigns for clients which we can’t wait to share with you soon, in the meantime, we’ll share more of our recent trip and a few interesting things happening in our city.
