How to Spend 12 Hours in Brighton

A Morning At The Pier

When you only have twelve hours in Brighton, the Pier is first on my list to visit! The seaside is peaceful and refreshing (well, depending on when you go, sunny days can get MAD). Leaving Brighton station, theres a long stretch of road and at the end you can immediately see the aqua sea which is shining under the sun. After a walk down the sea front, we stopped of at the Pier where we spent the morning in the arcade playing classic games and winning as many tickets as we could!

I swallowed my fear and went on a few rides because when in rome or whatever, but have learnt from my mistakes considering I've never been more terrified - being upside down, is not natural. If you want to have a laugh, the halloween themed ride takes you through a maze of ghosts and witches. I stayed far far away from the one that imitates a seesaw that literally takes you right to the top, around 500ft high and straight back down which scares the life out me! 

Take a ride up the Brighton Eye as well for a good panoramic view! 

Lunch at 'Food & Friends'

I'm not the no.1 vegetarian around, give me a steak and I'll be a happy bunny,  but this place will convert anyone and everyone. The halloumi and portobello burger is to die for, and the sweet potato pockets are delicious. Its in the midst of the shops, near the Royal Pavilion so perfect location, just make sure to make a reservation before going!

Window Shopping in the Lanes


Classic Brighton can seen in the quirky, colourful 'lanes', known for its vintage, bohemian shops and unique finds. It's what makes Brighton so different from other UK towns. 

Hope & Harlequin is great for vintage finds.

& Workshop for the cool items.

& Wolf & Gypsy Vintage for beautiful handmade clothes.

The buildings are bright and cute, making you feel like you're in a whole other country! While you're there, keep an eye out for the amazing graffiti thats normally around.

Dinner & Drinks At Silo

This place is such an experience! Everything is so sustainable, with the food being seasonal and the plates made from solidified plastic bags. Its a really inventive and inspiring place to eat, and encompasses what Brighton is all about! The bare aesthetic also makes it super instagramable.
