Cheap Accomodation in Brighton

by frozensausage

Me and my friend are visiting Brighton in the Summer, and we're looking for an apartment to rent for a few days which is cheap, cheerful, and central.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Re: Cheap Accomodation in Brighton

Hey welcome to the FUN CAPITAL of UK.

Well, there is plenty available in Brighton I guess. Just search web for temporary accommodation.

I would suggest the Uni of Brighton halls of residence as I have stayed in them. Some are bit away from the city centre before I started living in Brighton(takes about 15 min by the bus which is quite easily available). Cheap, cheerful but not central.

Travel Tips for Brighton

Rays of sunshine shining through the clouds

by martin_nl

Walking along the beach always gives you the possibility to look a very far distance towards the horizon. I can really enjoy it when the sun plays with the land or in this picture the sea. The clouds are quite dark, but the rays of sunshine are coming through the layer of clouds doing their best to lighten our days.

The lonely Seagull

by Elodie_Caroline

We, me and my husband, Chris, had just spent the afternoon walking around the main town and browsing through the shopping centre. It was coming upto late afternoon so we sauntered down one of the little roads where all of the bed and breakfasts etc are and landed back down onto the main road next to the promenade. So it was a walk besides the pebbly beach to get back upto the 'buzz' and glitz of Brighton.

True peacefulness has got to be seeing the sea and beach at Brighton on a late Autumn's afternoon in November: The waves are rough and crashing on to the beach as the wind suddenly gets up and you can feel the chill in the air. This lonely Seagull flying just over the sea near the shore just kind of made it a really nice Autumn's afternoon.

Somthing to Sit on - For the Beach

by Lozza_9

If you want to sit on the beach I would bring a nice thick blanket (the beach has large stones and can hurt) or bring some chairs. You can hire deck chairs but some people may find the cost too hire if you have a big family.

West Pier Fire 28/3/03

by Elodie_Caroline

On the 28th March 2003, it was a very sad day for people like me that were hoping to see West Pier rise out of the ashes like the Pheonix.

At 10.45 am that morning, a blaze destroyed whatever remnants that were left for the building of West Pier, hundreds of people stood by on the Beach and watched the old Pier burn as 60ft waves engulfed the Pier. Firemen couldn't tackel the blaze because the grade 1 listed building is structurally unsafe.

Arson is suspected as a speedboat was seen near the vicinity and something was seen being thrown onto the Pier minutes before it went up in flames.

The ok to rebuild it was only given a few weeks before this happened too......... This definitely sounds like an insurance job or something very shifty to me.


by themajor about Daydream Nation

Daydream Nation is a curious gem hidden amongst the shops of Brighton's 'New Laines' area. It is so unassuming that you will initially have trouble finding it but raise your eyes above head height (unless you have them on stalks already) and there, on the first floor of a trendy t-shirt emporium called Re-Load, you will find one of the city's smallest but perfectly formed shopping outlets.

What does it sell? Cards! But not Christmas or Birthday cards - collectors trading cards. The offspring of those given away with bubblegum in the 1960s (Ah, god bless 'Batman' and the 'American Civil War' sets!) manufacturers soon came to realize that it was the gum that most resembled cardboard and that it was the cards themselves that kids were after. Swapping in the playground became a manic actiivity and the growth of children's television and computer games helped stoke the fire of the trading card community. Nowadays trading card sets are issued for a wide variety of subjects - many of them TV, Film and cult classic spin offs. Oft have I clambered up the stairs in pursuit of my children and their desire to gaze upon the latest set of Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh or Magic cards...and no, I still can't beat 'em at the games they're designed to play. Like so may bewildered parents I am simply content to look at the pictures - and particularly when the sets include Bond girls and the delightful Lft. Uhuru from Star Trek.

It goes without saying that the spread of popular culture now means that trading cards are not merely the preserve of children. Far from it. The card games you can play with these sets have spawned a number of tournament driven clubs and you are as likely to see as many if not more customers over 20 as under it. Modesty and the threat of violence forbids me from betraying which age group the owner falls into but needless to say she is approachable, friendly and helpful...and the cheque is hopefully in the post.

An excellent port of call for a purchase designed to restore peace and quiet on a day when the children think everything is 'boring'. Individual cards, small packets of cards, big collectors boxes of cards and shiny tins of cards...ooh, and card containers, covers and a few other cult games too. From pence to pounds. From pocket money to wages spent when your other half isn't looking!
