Terre a Terre – Brighton

Situated in the historic Lanes region of Brighton, Terre à Terre has become one of the city’s iconic vegetarian and vegan restaurants. Since opening in 1993, it’s established an enviable reputation and is sought out by locals and tourists alike. When I visited with my wife and two children, it wasn’t long before the [...]

The Olive Grove – Brighton

Tucked away in a private gated courtyard, just off North Street, in the heart of Brighton’s historic Lanes district is an unpretentious Mediterranean restaurant that should be on everybody’s radar. As soon as you stroll into the secluded courtyard, passing the twisted olive trees en route to the restaurant’s entrance, it’s like you’re in the [...]

Hove Museum & Art Gallery

Hove Museum & Art Gallery is promoted as “one of the most family-friendly and accessible museums in the southeast”. Well, it’s certainly true that it’s not just adults who’ll delight in wandering around. I visited with my wife and two children. We were staying in Brighton so enjoyed a morning stroll along the promenade until [...]

Food for Friends – Brighton

Living in West Somerset where there is a dearth of veggie restaurants, it’s  a delight to visit a place like Brighton where you’ll discover a plethora of eateries offering nothing but vegetarian and vegan dishes. My family and I sampled several on a recent trip to Sussex’s city by the sea and elegant Food for [...]

YHA Brighton

The YHA has hostels in some pretty decent settings and Brighton is no exception. In fact, it’s a perfect location, just across from the beach and the entrance to the city’s Grade II listed pier; and if that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, it’s within walking distance of the main tourist attractions and shops, [...]

Brighton

Having visited Brighton only once before – and that was years ago – I enjoyed arriving with my family free of any preconceived views and opinions on what to expect or what we could achieve during our short break. Our excursion to this Sussex resort, granted city status by the Queen in 2000, was a [...]

Brighton Toy & Model Museum

Hidden away underneath the forecourt of Brighton’s railway station is a gem of a museum which will bring memories flooding back for adults and provide a snapshot of the past for younger visitors. It may not be the biggest museum around (it occupies four of the Victorian arches holding up the station’s forecourt), but what [...]

Royal Pavilion – Brighton

This stunning building, which took 35 years to make, is among Brighton’s premier tourist attractions – and it’s easy to see why. Classed as a “pleasure palace”, it was built for King George IV and possesses an exotic oriental style, inside and out. It’s long been part of the city’s fabric and tourists from around [...]

Hotel Seattle – Brighton

On the hotel’s website the general manager makes two bold statements: the Seattle is all about “great hospitality wrapped up in a little piece of Brighton” and that the staff are a “big part of what makes the Seattle experience so unique”. They’re brave statements because all too often staff-visitor relations are where hotels let [...]
