Had a couple of days exploring Brighton. After quite a big breakfast, we made our way across to the I360, the British Airways tower for a flight up to 130m, about 450 feet.
On the way to the tower, we walked past an op3n air exhibition by the Brighton & Hove Camera Club. I have to say that the quality of the photos was outstanding, and if I had lived in the area I would definitively be exploring joining the club. What got me though was the nature of the exhibition, the mounts were weatherproof cages of rocks, what an absolutely brilliant idea. There was another smaller selection of pictures in a billboard area. A few of these had been damaged by a graffiti vandal.
The “flight” was excellent, if a bit expensive. It’s one of those things though, that you have to do if you go to Brighton. Very smooth and although 450 feet doesn’t sound very high, it really is.
From. The tower, we took a stroll through the shopping centre, I spent the usual 30 minutes in Waterstones, coming out with the usual frustrations (I’ll have to do a post about those). We then made our way down to the pavilion.
The Brighton Pavillion was not what I expected. It’s a lot older than I thought. It was a very interesting walk through. The thing about places like this, is that I can’t imagine people living there. Of course it’s a different time.
We for a walk along Brighton Pier, and spent a bit of time, and of course money in the amusements!
All in, it was a day where we did everything we planned, and the result was a really good day..
