A BRIGHTON GUIDE

I can honestly say that Brighton is the most relaxing place I have ever visited and the past few days I've managed to finally be able to experience Brighton in the sun (it was 39 degrees, what???) and it was magical. I've never experienced somewhere so beautiful and calming in my life and I've wanted to throw a few ideas in a post for you all for a while but I wanted to visit a few more times before feeling like I could give you a good little list of things to do once you're there. I'm not going to lie, the first time I ever went to Brighton was a few years ago and I went for a day which is a little crazy to think because it takes sooo long to get there from where I live but I was young and I wanted to go so badly and I remember booking my tickets the night before for a same day return and I was so excited and ever since my first few hours in Brighton, I've fallen in love with the place. So here are some of the things I would recommend doing in Brighton to make the most of your time there (and just to let you know, if you wanted to book any of the things mentioned or find out more then I have kindly linked everything for you!)
The British Airways i360 was one of the most coolest but scariest things I did whilst I was there. Brighton is such a beautiful place and to be able to see the sea so far out is an amazing feeling and also gives you great photo opportunities. I've always wanted to go up the i360 but I was a little nervous to do it before but when I was down at the beach, I thought why not? I'm not going to be here again for a while and I'll regret it if I don't do it - and I loved it. It is a little high (200m I think!) but it's so beautiful to see the whole (pretty much) of Brighton at such an amazing angle. Once up there, there is a bar where you can purchase drinks and snacks which I thought was such a nice touch!
And of course.. would I be able to do this post without mentioning the beach? One of my favorite things to do in Brighton is to go down on a little beach walk at night time and hear the sea. I remember last time I went to Brighton, I stayed at one of The Harbour Hotel (see the post here) and you could hear the sea all night long and I cannot put into words how incredible that is, it's so relaxing. Not to mention, the amazing food that they offer on the Brighton Pier (massive bonus for beach days!) 

There are a few shops in Brighton which I find so special and unique to the town, such as Boho Gelato which offers the most amazing Gelato. I opted for Sea Salt Caramel (the most amazing flavor of all!) and classic vanilla and it was a dream. There are two things that taste amazing by the sea and one is ice-cream and the other one in Fish and Chips... I went to the most amazing fish bar which was called Seasiders - they were incredible and you could sit outside or inside by the window and still have an amazing view of the Pier and the beach.
The last thing I wanted to mention that made my trip so easy was the hotel. So this time, I stayed in the Premier Inn on North Street and I've never actually stopped in one until now and oh my god. I was amazed. The team there made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and my stay was so enjoyable because of their amazing team. They offer breakfast at about £9.00 a day (I think!) which started off my day each morning with a full English buffet and unlimited drinks. My stay at the Premier Inn cost just under £200 (without breakfast) I would definitely go back again and it was in walking distance of the town and the beach!
