On Wednesday we set off in the cold and wet to Brighton for a short little break before I start college next week. A few very long and tiring hours later we arrived at Brighton seafront, after being stuck in every traffic queue going, Because of numerous roads being shut. When we eventually arrived, I am not going to lie to you, I wasn't that impressed, I come from the countryside, so going in to a big built up area was quite a culture shock for me. After walking up the pier and back again, getting pretty soggy we decided it was time to call it a day and head for the hotel.
On Thursday, we decided to visit the lanes after hearing never ending praises for them. My disappointment for Brighton so far was not changed by the lanes, Now unless I completely missed everything, the only shops in the lanes were naff tourist shops and jewelers! I did find tiger though which I was extremely happy about, and I am considering writing to them, to ask if they can bring one to my local town, as I don't think I can carry on my life without a tiger shop, near me.
On Thursday afternoon we traveled away from the city and in to familiar surroundings for me, of trees and fields to the Bluebell steam railway line. The railway station was set up as being very British and old fashioned almost like the 1940's/1950's ( Don't quote me on that, I'm not good with history), which I loved. After exploring the station, we trundled up the line twice through the clam and peaceful countryside.
On Friday, we were woken to the sun beaming through the curtains. Although it being are last day I made sure that we made the most of the south coast and we traveled along it, stopping at quite a few little seaside towns along the way. We stopped of that Brighton first, so I could take photos of all the amusements and of course the famous Brighton pier sign. It was very quiet and peaceful,which made it a lot more enjoyable.
I love the street art in Brighton. I only got a couple of shots, though if I had time I would of definitely of checked out some of the backstreets to find more.
We then stopped off on the way home at lancing, Worthing and little Hampton. Here are some photos from those places. Side note, I really want to live in one of the apartments in photo below at worthing!
Sorry these photos weren't my best! ( And no that's not a ploy to get you to comment. I was honestly really struggling with my camera and couldn't get any of the effects or shots I wanted!
