Half term trip to Brighton

February half term seems like such a long time ago.  This post has been sat in drafts waiting from me to finish since then.  With sickness and assignments it just has not been finished.

I took the girls on the 4 hour train journey to Brighton.  It involved 3 trains but this actually broke up the journey nicely and kept the girls entertained.  There was plenty to see as we went through London.

Almost towards the end of our journey my youngest got a little bored and decided it was time for Mummy to wear the Trunki ToddlePak.  We made a game out of it and it kept her entertained.

The weather in Brighton was cold, wet and incredibly windy.  The taxi driver who dropped us off at out hotel advised us to be extremely careful and not venture out of the hotel due to the high winds.  I took his advice and opted to stay in the hotel.  Well it would be rude not to have a spot of Afternoon tea after all that travelling.

The girls began to settle in and loved that we had come on holiday.  We had come to visit my sister who lives in Brighton.  The girls wasted no time in showing her our hotel, and of course this had to be done in hotel slippers.

The wind started to calm down a little later in the week and we decided to investigate Brighton Pier.  The pier is full of fairground rides, from the traditional

to the more modern.

Although the girls favourite thing was to play on the beach

For our final day in Brighton we decided to treat the girls to a yummy breakfast at the Creperie. It was really delicious and I am tempted to get on a train to go back just for breakfast.

After breakfast we had just enough time to visit the Sealife centre before we headed back on the train.

We had a really wonderful holiday in Brighton and it was great to see my sister.  I think in the summer months when the weather is better we shall return.

  1. Sounds like a lovely break.
    I remember I went to Brighton when I was 20 worn a friend and it was so windy we hung on to lampposts and our legs raised into the air.
    Glad you stayed in where it was safe :-)
