The 360i was an amazing experience, but other than that, disappointing. Noisy, dirty, boarded up and if you like graffiti, then you're in luck. Full of hen and stag parties, the well advertised "lanes" were disappointing and seriously over-priced parking. Not good.
We came here expecting an eclectic mixture of people ,art and food ,we found scruffy sticky streets .Lots of homeless people ,drunks and sick everywhere. Maybe my expectations were too high but it was worse than Blackpool which i havent been to for 30 years . You had to look very hard to find nice .... We left on an early train home ,could not wait to leave !!
Big fan of Brighton, love the whole ambiance from the seafront/promenade, to the marina, the lanes and shopping, always guaranteed an eclectic mix of people, great people watching, great array of restaurants to suit every pocket, you can't help but have a wonderful time.
I loved how diverse Brighton was, no one cares about what you look like, what you wear and everyone we met seemed friendly which was nice. I was saddened by the shear amount of homelessness and we were asked for money repeatedly throughout our 48hours stay which can be a little intimidating. We loved exploring the lanes and finding little places along the way, all with their own individual character and features.
Brighton is a great spot for fun and rest and good times with friends. The beach is calming and you can soak up some old-school fairground vibes on the pier. Withnail and I fans should visit Marwood and Presuming Ed coffee house. You should also try the Pan-Asian food (Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean) and craft beer. For shopping, the roads around the station are full of cool little independent shops and some great coffee spots. Enjoy!
we met friends and all went to the bar/restaurant just around the corner from the hotel. the drinks were good, the food was quite tasty and lots of it. we were able to take the leftovers with us and ate those for lunch the next day. parking was free between 8pm and 9am.
