At the end of July the good lady and me are spenind a couple of nights in Brighton, stayin at the Hilton Metropole.
What should we do for our couple of days? Any unmissable eating places?? Where should we head for good bars? How much of a gamble is dippin a toe into English Channel??
Any help much appreciated.
Wandering around the labyrinthine Lanes area is fun. The Pacillion is, of course, the must see. Best restaurant by all accounts is "Due South", right on the beach - I've twice failed to get reservations there on sunny Sundays recently. Venture into the Channel at your peril! Well, okay, a TOE won't lead to immediate frostbite...
La Fourchette for lunch.
Shopping in the North Lanes as well as theLanes (see my page for explanation!).
Komedia is a fantastic venue, there is always something on.
Fish and chips on the beach.
Get the tourist bus up to Devils Dyke if the weather is good, take a picnic from Bona Foodie in St James St, they make them up for you in a container with plastic cutlery/napkin.
If you are in Brighton on a weekend, don't forget to book at able, as the good restaurants get very booked up.
Have fun :-)
