Impromptu Brighton Trip - August 2011

Good evening ladies!

On Wednesday afternoon my boyfriend surprised me with an impromptu trip to Brighton for 2 nights, I was so excited as I had never been to Brighton before! I had the Thursday & Friday booked off work but I didn't have anything planned, that soon changed!

We stayed at the Grand Hotel which was absolutely gorgeous!
The bed was huge, the room was lovely and the service was great.
On the second evening we sat in the hotel bar and there was a swing singer, he was really good and a little bit gorgeous!
The best part of the hotel was definitely breakfast! It was a buffet style breakfast and they literally had everything under the sun. I had a fry up & waffles with syrup, oops! =]

These are just a few of the gorgeous shops in the lanes, I was walking around pointing at everything saying "look at that, look at that!"

As you can see the weather on Thursday was typically British, rubbish!
We visited the pier and had lots of fun playing in the amusements & eating doughnuts. Tony spent £30 in a teddy machine and didn't win anything, he wasn't very happy!

I couldn't visit the seaside without having fish & chips so I insisted we had some for dinner, we went to Harry Ramsden's next to the pier.
I partook in the "Harry Ramsden's Fish challenge" and as you can see it was huge! Tony helped me rather alot and I got a certificate, please ignore the awful photo! The wind ruined my hair and make up!

I had a lovely time in Brighton and would certainly love to visit again. I felt like a princess being swept away for a surprise break, I have the best boyfriend in the world!
