48 Hours In Brighton: A Foodies Travel Guide

18/06/2018

A lot of my inspiration for where to visit in Brighton was derived from the world of Youtube and Instagram.

It is constantly shown off as this perfect, aesthetically pleasing seaside town, so I thought it was about time to go and see what all the fuss is about.

So, after you’ve found cheap travel and a reasonably priced place to stay, the next hurdle is what to do and where to go that doesn’t involve spending a fortune.

As we’re talking in terms of a one-night getaway, booking in to a hotel will probably work out cheapest.

Most Airbnb’s are hard to find on a one-night basis and it’s hardly worth slumming it in a hostel for a night when the basic hotels are pretty reasonable.

I stayed at Hotel ibis Brighton City Centre – it’s a 1 min walk from the train station and on a road that leads directly to the seafront; making everything in walking distance.

Cost per night: £80 (between 2)

As Brighton is FULL of amazing little eateries, cafes and well is the place to go if you’re a foodie like me, this post is mainly going to focus on where to go when you’re feeling peckish…

The Lanes are the perfect place to start. Allow yourself a couple of hours to get lost in the maze of narrow streets filled with quirky shops and beautiful eateries. If you’re just looking to browse and window shop, then this is the place to go.

[Side note] Apologies, as these aren’t all necessary the cheapest food options but, it’s sooooo hard to resist being drawn in by the stunning interiors and mouth-watering menus that Brightons foodie scene has to offer – believe me…

Red Roaster is a VERY pretty little eatery, located at the bottom of St James’s Street.

On a dreary, rainy day (a most likely scenario in the UK), the decor really makes you feel like you’re abroad somewhere, surrounded by tropical plants and lush greenery.

Even better, there is an all-day brunch menu! YAS!

Now synonymous with the Brighton food scene, you must go and try a Dum Dum Doughnut! I’m not usually a huge doughnut fan, but these were pretty delish!

TOP TIP: Make sure to get there early (ish). Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Refuel with a coffee at Lost in the Lanes. The pastry selection is also to die for!

They serve the coffee and milk separately so you can essentially ‘make your own’, to get it as strong or weak as you’d like.

Satisfy your sweet tooth at Be Chocolate. It is the place to be for all you chocoholics out there!

They hand-make fresh chocolate in front of customers to try and buy – so pop in if you fancy a cheeky free sample! Although, it is very tempting and you’ll probably end up leaving with bags full of the stuff!

If you make it all the way to Hove, which is a bit of a walk, but a lovely stroll on a summers day, then make sure to grab a bite to eat at Gail’s Bakery.

It serves up miniature versions of all of your favourite sweet and savoury bakery treats…so cute!

Sooooo, last up on my list of places to eat is an Italian restaurant called Pinocchio.

From the outside, it doesn’t look like much and you probably wouldn’t choose it if you were just passing by but, the food was so tasty, not overpriced and it was recommended to us by locals, so must be good!

I only had one full day in Brighton, which was pretty full on and non-stop, but worth it for all the amazing food and coffee and the chance to sit on a beach and look out to sea – something I love to do, but don’t get to do too often – even if I was interrupted every few seconds by the fear of a seagull dropping on my head!!

To be honest, I really was stopping for a snack every half hour as I felt spoilt for choice by all of the tempting cafes at [literally] every corner we turned.
