As some of you have probably already noticed via Instagram or Snapchat, I was last week in Brighton on holiday. Most impressions and Must Visit’s I want to bring you a little closer today.
the Brighton Pier
Who already was in Brighton knows certainly the Brighton Pier. This is the place of amusement No 1 in Brighton. In addition to snacks, rides and games caves simply can just enjoy the view of the open sea.
On the Brighton Pier there is always something going on, especially of course in fine weather and on the weekends. The rides are relatively low, for children free passes for certain tracks may often be purchased.
There are, for example, a small roller coaster.
And a small water pace track.
the Royal Pavillon
This attraction you should not miss. The Royal Pavilion with its exceptional architecture inspires me always on’s new. Surrounded by a beautiful park, it is a popular meeting place.
Small historical excursion:
The Royal Pavilion was the Prince of Wales George IV. Built in the years 1815-1822 in the seaside resort of Brighton in England. The architect was John Nash.
His models were the Mogul palaces in India, with its interior in the Chinese style is the Pavilion of the most exotic palace in Europe.
After the death of the builder George IV in 1830, the palace still by his successor, William IV.benutzt was. Queen Victoria visited but reluctant Brighton and regretted the lack of privacy in the 1841 developed by the Railway resort. From 1845, the government planned therefore the palace for sale. In 1850 he went for £ 53,000 to the city of Brighton. As a result, the building then served for meeting purposes, the First World War as a hospital for wounded soldiers from India and the West Indies. Since World War II, the city has made great efforts to restore the pavilion faithfully.
The Prince of Wales visited Brighton first in 1783, shortly after he had reached the age of majority. Located on the coastal town was known by his uncle, the Duke of Cumberland, with whom he shared the preference for cooking, games and theater, and with whom he lived in Brighton in Grove House.

Domiciled is also a museum which I visited on my last visit some years ago.
The most popular seaside resort in England can score with the beautiful Seafront. Both during the day and evening, there is an absolute place to be. The day can you as Go swimming or water sports, eating ice cream or drinking milkshakes, and strolling in the beach shops prepares great fun. In the evening it can dine comfortably in the great beach restaurants, in the music bar drinking their cocktails with high quality live music and on the beach itself, a BBQ is with disposable barbecues organized.

the tourist bus
In Brighton there is the possibility of a tour bus. Personally, I am certainly never driven it and have explored the city on foot or by the city buses. To get an overview but it is certainly a good idea although Brighton not as large as London. Since I was already for the 3rd time in Brighton to visit I skipped it.
Incidentally, one meets at the weekend on the sidewalk above the beach on all sorts of curious. Since there are already times Minnie and Mickey Mouse alongside Darth Vader.
Highly recommended for all underwater friends is the Sea Life in Brighton, where you can sometimes even stroke a starfish, admire giant turtles and walk under a shark tank.
