If you ever find yourself in the South-East of England with a few days to spare, I would highly recommend a trip to Brighton.
Perfect for a weekend get-away (a day trip might be a bit short), Brighton has a little bit of everything. Seaside, open-air markets, loads of food and drink options, and of course, the Brighton Pavilion.
The architecture of the Brighton Pavilion seems both strangely at-home and bizarrely out of place at the same time…
One word of caution: if you plan on driving, do a bit of research into parking options beforehand. Better yet, take the train.
