Having eventually made it to the coach we were on our way to sunny Brighton. We’d got lucky with the weather all things considered (this is English summer after all) and we were also pretty lucky with our room!
Hosted in a 1930s style Parisian café, the atmosphere was very pleasant. We were welcomed and shown to our tables to be seated. The food was nice, nothing too out of the ordinary but typical of an afternoon tea. Mini sandwiches and cakes – yum!
The teas however, were the opposite. The choices were English Breakfast Tea, (which is the norm and also the preferred choice for the less adventurous), Rockerfella Cleansing, (consisting of peppermint and spearmint) and Terracotta Sunburst (rhubarb and vanilla). It was all very civilised and only a short distance from our hotel, then out for drinks and dancing.
After last night’s drink and we free time and decided to head to the pier which was almost opposite or hotel.
Plenty of amusements to keep you occupied as with most piers, although there were a few surprises given the location.
After a cider and some cheesey chips, we’d decided to head to The Lanes which is a well known area of backstreets and boutique shops, as well as a few high street shops. Perfect for a stroll around the town in the sunshine.
Brighton had such a nice seaside vibe. The kind that gives you the feeling of a chilled happiness and easygoing bliss.
We headed back to meet everyone at the hotel before cocktail making and dinner at The Brighton Rocks Bar.
On arrival we were met by our hosts and were given a cheeky glass of prosecco to get in the spirit – cheers!
If you’re looking for a place to make cocktails with a group of mates this is the place to go. The guys are really friendly and the make sure everyone has fun while mixing.
Great atmosphere, great food and great company. I’d recommend to anyone visiting Brighton.
