BRIGHTON PIER – THINGS TO DO IN ENGLAND

Brighton Pier offers a variety of rides, attractions, restaurants and bars.

Growing up just 25 minutes away from Brighton (or B-Town as it is known as by the locals), I loved escaping to Brighton Pier on a sunny day – if not for the rides and arcade but for the doughnuts!

The Pier is home to a handful of rides, including a selection of thrilling roller coasters and stationary twister and river rides. You can also enjoy classics such as Carousels, Dodgems and a Horror Hotel as well as trampolines and a waltzer.

Palm Court Restaurant can be found along the Pier, offering your classic fish and chips or head to one of the bars for a beer or three. Sweet and savoury snack kiosks are available for those who want to grab and go – Moo Moo Milkshake Corner being a favourite of mine; choose from an extensive list of ingredients to make your own milkshake. Crepes are also a great choice as are the Wokstar Noodles.

When visiting London, a day trip to Brighton should be high on your list; exploring an English seaside town and a historic but enjoyable pier!

Head to the pier in the late afternoon when families are starting to head home and the Pier begins to light up.

    I’m ashamed to say that despite growing up and living in the UK most of my adult life that I haven’t visited Brighton Pier yet. It’s funny how sometimes we overlook these natural gems that are so close to home. Not only does the Brighton Pier look like a great place to spend the afternoon, I didn’t realise originally there were two piers, and that one was damaged by a storm & caught fire.

      Hey Barry, I know! We always miss those things that are near us! I have shamefully never been to Stonehenge and I am only two hours away!

    I loved the Brighton Pier. It has incredible charm and the smell of the English seaside is just unlike any other. The fair on the pier is quite fun and doing the mechanical bull was my husband’s favourite memory. Mine was watching the many people fishing in hopes for a great catch.
