Weekend trip to Brighton


Last weekend I went on a little weekend staycation to Brighton for my Cousin’s Fiancee’s hen do. Before I visit anywhere I usually turn to lifestyle blogs to find out a little bit more about the best places to eat and shop, So I thought I would give you guys a little insight into what I got up to, in case any of you wanted to visit this beautiful quirky city.

Brighton Pier 

Brighton pier formally known as Brighton Marine Palace or pleasure pier. The Pier was renamed in 2000 by its owners to be shortened and simplified to- Brighton Pier. 

This very typically British seaside pier is the hub of activity and is home to various food stands and of course, rides and attractions.






I dont know what it is, but there is still something so magical about an old traditional pier. The smell of the Fish and chips and the sound of the seagulls is still one of my favourite things.


Choccywoccydoodah is an art and design focused chocolaterie. Their creations are nothing other than incredible! Located in the Laines of Brighton tucked away in amongst little boutiques and shops.

We ventured into the cafe upstairs and was not disappointed! I had a traditional chocolate milkshake and shared a cake with my mother. (Seriously don’t attempt one on your own- they are HUGE!)



The Lanes

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to take many photographs of the lanes, but this was definitely my personal highlight.

The Lanes are a collection of narrow lanes in the city of Brighton and Hove famous for their small shops and narrow alleyways. They are incredibly picturesque with cobbled streets and gorgeous quaint pubs and shops.


My favourite store was All about Aud– A vintage clothing boutique.

If you’re lucky enough to head over for a city break this summer – enjoy it, you deserved it! I probably indulged a bit too much, looking back on the photographs of all the food, but Brighton really is the cutest seaside location.
