Brighton - WOW!










The Royal Pavilion with its Indian exterior, Chinese interior and additional gothic flourishes. Why? Well, how else should a love-nest look?




The view along the seafront, showing the famous Brighton Pier and the Brighton Eye.




Crazy golf, chips, mushy peas, Slurpees!
Must be the British seaside.




Yep, take a look at that "sand"....




and a local worshipping those fine grains....




All that remains of the West Pier, after a mysterious fire. What you can see is the ironwork, sitting alone and inaccessible out in the sea.




A lucky find which I stumbled on while wandering "the lanes": Mr Magpie Collectors Emporium, the home of The Brighton Wood Type & Font Shop. You can visit the website here.

  3. I love Brighton too, and especially the wacky architecture of the Pavilion and piers - this brings back lots of memories.
