Our very own Head Vlogger Kirstie Bryce started her 6 month journey in our seaside town Brighton. Have a watch of the video above or have a read through below where she details all of her adventures.
Brighton may be known for its scenic beach and pier, as it should be, but it is also home
to instagramable cobbled streets, quirky shops, retro pubs, clubs, restaurants and
experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Treat your taste buds in the North Lanes, Jubilee Square with Pizza Express, Chilli Pickle
or two for one cocktails in Las Iguanas. Or visit The Olive Grove, Gars Chinese or Jamie’s
Italian to sample the culinary stylings of one of the UK’s most raved about chef’s, Jamie
Oliver. If you’d like a side of entertainment with your meal head to Komedia. Right next
to Gourmet Burger Kitchen, live comedy acts constantly on the go and a small cinema
upstairs...what’s not to love.
Or maybe you’d prefer to treat yourself? Brighton is full of cobbled streets lined with
quirky shops and cafes for little bits and bobs, as well as designer shops for label lovers.
And why not round up your shopping day with a bit of wedding ring inspiration at some
of Brighton’s independently owned Jewellery shops. Find you and your special someone
rings that really are one of a kind.
And how best to unwind after a busy day of shopping...with a cocktail. Head to dead wax
social for a chilled retro vibe or to Bohemia to enjoy a specially designed cocktail on
their rooftop terrace and enjoy watching the sunset over the pier.
Next stop, Brighton Pavilion! Start your day scouting out a potential wedding venue
while brushing up on a little bit of local history with a guided tour through the grand
rooms a galleries of this historical landmark.
Fancy a bit of something different? Check out Kasablanka jazz bar and enjoy some live
music, or why not make the music yourself and sing your heart out and Slam Star
Karaoke bar. Then sweeten the deal with a visit to Choccy Woccy Doo Dah, the home of
chocolate masterpieces that have to be seen to be believed.
Walk along the beach and the pier for that last instagram photoshoot, and finish it off
with a flight on the British Airways i360. Enjoy brighton from the skies with a glass of
bubbly in hand. Cheers to that!
You also have a number of great casinos available along the seafront, which had a surprising amount of hen party groups on hand. Having not visited a casino in a significant portion of time, it felt quite unusual to enter one again and seeing how much they have changed with technological advancements. From the option for casino paypal deposits to people actually gambling with bitcoins, it was a whole new world to me. Needless to say I stuck to the Roullette table and sipped an orange juice (free of charge, winning).
My final amazing surprise had to be the World's End pub with its built in arcade room and virtual reality escape rooms! I couldn't believe how much fun it was to try it all out. They had a giant car racing game which I didn't get a chance to play, but you can have up to 12 competitors at once, unbelievable!
