Brighton Pier Afternoon Tea

I think it’s probably very clear from this blog that I’m a “go” girl. James & I spend Saturdays & Sundays at the coast, skiing, visiting the zoo, and always eating. We love to plan our weekends in advance, it’s something to look forward too

It all started when James moved to Vienna and expat life encouraged us to use our weekends to explore, enjoy & just be together. It was easy in Vienna but harder at home when weekends are filled with general life admin, visiting family, friends’ birthday celebrations etc, it’s difficult to find “us” time, we have to book it in

Our first “at home” adventure was a day trip to Brighton. I spent the week before excited that James was coming home but also planning our adventure. We woke early, took the train to Clapham Junction, picked up some coffee & croissants and then took the fast train to Brighton

We had the most idyllic day, it was ever so sunny for late winter, we walked down the Lanes, the Pier – played all the games – and sat on the beach, picked up some fish & chips and then journeyed home to London

One thing it’s easy to forget is how commutable Brighton is from London, whether by train or car, last week, my family, my dogs & I drove down to spend the day in Brighton. After exploring the town, and walking the dogs along the beach, we went to the Malmaison Brighton for afternoon tea and a spot of rose on the balcony, I couldn’t recommend it more – a perfect day getaway
