Walk Along the Promenade
Brightons promenade is such a beautiful way to spend an afternoon walking along the beach front, enjoying the fresh air, and watching the waves crash along the shore. As you walk along, you'll pass many cafes, pubs, quirky gift shops, ice cream vendors and more.
Brighton definitely has no shortage of amazing restaurants, pubs and cafes to indulge in.
Some of our favourites were:
VIP- A small traditional Italian restaurant, with the best Pizza place in town, and also at a super reasonable price, who can complain ?!
Billies - For the best breakfast around, head to billies ! Prior to our trip, a friend of ours told us to try an oversized hash brown dish, so Billies was our chosen choice for this, and it definitely did not disappoint !
The Mesmerist - For a Sunday lunch that is sure to leave you full and satisfied, look no further than this old England style pub. Just a short distance from the Palace Pier, The Mesmerist is definitely worth a visit.
