What to see in Brighton
I recommend walking around or you will miss the best of the city.
It is the first thing that stands out from the city center, what I noticed is that Brighton is built on hills and hills, and you can admire the sea in the distance from different points of the city. Certainly it is not comparable to the beaches we are used to but for a short break we can be satisfied.
Go light, but don’t forget a beach towel and a book. Do not spread your towel too low if the tide is low, as the temperament of the sea changes often and you will not risk getting your shoes soaked especially if you go there in winter.
