Just a short day trip to Brighton, a beach town on the south coast of England. It was about an hour train ride from Central London. A short walk from the train station brought you on the beach.

I was lucky to visit on a quiet day, kind of breezy. Only a few people were on the beach, not sun-bathing, just resting. I strolled along the pebble beach for a while, and sat down for a snack.

Brighton Pier is a giantic structure built where about 100 metres into the ocean. They have an game arcade, restaurants and lots of souvenir shops.
