If you live south of London, thinking about relaxing, having some fun, and not caring a bit about anything for a while...Brighton is the perfect place for you.
Brighton is located at the south coast of England, just half an hour by train from Gatwick (1 hour and 15 minutes from London Victoria), it's so quick to get to....anytime!
It's a typical small European city, with small streets and old buildigs and it really makes you feel good just walking around there, looking at other people in the street, getting into her narrow alleys and down to the sea shore, a sight to perfect that picture.
This cuty has a lot of small cafes and restaurants where it's very nice to have dinner or just sit down for something sweet and a cup of tea/coffee enjoying the nice atmosphere there.
A must see there is the Royal Pavilion, this is a big palace built in an oriental style, it's said that it belonged to a man from the royal family somewhere who was deeply in love with a woman, the problem is....or to be more precise the problems were: 1- He's married. 2-His position in society won't allow him such a foolishness. 3- She was a widow. 4- She was older than him, the story says that they kept secretly meeting, later his wife died and he rebelled over everybody and decided to live with his beloved woman, so he built this great palace in a small city...Brighton and moved in there with the love of "most of" his life. The design of that place is really great, and if you get there during the day, it's worth it to go inside and take a look.
For me, Brigthon turned out to become the quick nice little runaway from the boredom and dullness of Gatwick, and yes, i love that place...
