Brighton Part 2: Exploring the City

Once I got off the train, the city centre is just a 5-minute walk.

Brighton is a small town.

All the attractions, such as the Clock Tower, The Lanes, Brighton Dome, Royal Pavilion, are pretty much all within 20-minute walk.

The only place where I had to take the bus is to the Marina Village.

I was randomly walking back up from the Brighton Pier.

Such a beautiful restaurant: Donatello Ristorante.

This area is of Brighton is full of restaurants.

It's almost like a small food village!

Encountered this gorgeous building.  

It looked empty though...

Ahhh!  I love all these colours.

If you keep walking to the end of this street, it's the seaside!

At this point I started googling yummy restaurants in Brighton.

Food For Friends is listed as one of the best on TripAdvisor.

I passed by this ramen place, which was almost just across the street from Food For Friends.

After trying some ramen in London, I have been in doubt lol.

Such a cute little store!

I feel like my best friend would love to explore here very much :)

I stopped a bit here, wondering what this building is for.
(The name is obvious, but purpose ambiguous.)

This is the excerpt from the official website:
Quakerism is a way of life rooted in a transforming experience of the Divine. From this we seek to live out our principles of truth, peace, simplicity and equality, recognising that of God in everyone.
Our Meeting offers a place of welcome, encounter and spiritual exploration.
At the heart of Quakerism is our worship. Our main Meeting for Worship in Brighton is at 10.30am every Sunday. It lasts an hour, and is mainly silent worship although people may stand and speak if moved to do so.

Wouldn't it be lovely sitting here in the summer?

There are many steep slopes in Brighton, like this here.

The houses are mostly white or brightly colourful.
Very typical for a seaside city.

Time to head home...but first, a snap shot of the train station ceiling.

To get back to Three Bridges and transfer onto a train to London Victoria, I have to take a 40-minute bus ride first.
(Unless you want to spend an extra half hour on the train - that'll get you directly to London Victoria.)

Bye bye Brighton - until next time!

Thank you for such nice weather.
