We planned the perfect day in Brighton - so you don't have to!

21st April, 2021
With holidaying abroad looking unlikely this year, you’re probably looking at exploring a little closer to home and making the most of those UK staycation hotspots. We’ve accrued a few worrrth it hang-outs from coffee shops (priorities) to bakeries, restaurants, boozers and beyond. Take a look !!
  
 
Start your day with a coffee & pastry...
If you’re anything like us, a city break is always food and coffee oriented so while, 'but first coffee' might be the new live, laugh, love, it’s undeniably accurate. Grab a next-level pastry from Julien Plumart (the best of all the land) and a coffee from Pelicano en route to the seafront...

📍 Julian Plumart 48 Queens Rd, Brighton BN1 3XB
📍 Pelicano Coffee 28 Queens Rd, Brighton BN1 3XA


Indulge in a spot of flower therapy...
Flower heads, you’ll be very looked after in Brighton. There are so many talented floral creatives in Brighton but for fresh blooms, Kate Langdale is the one. She’s been in the business for 35 years and has a special eye for romantic, wild arrangements with a nod to vintage charm. Her hand-tied bouquets are to die for...

For everlasting dried florals, look no further than Phohm – give Phoebe Mulrooney some pampas grass and a masterpiece she shall make...
 
📍 Kate Langdale at Seven Dials
📍 Phohm 12 Meeting House Ln, Brighton BN1 1HB

 
Tuck into small plates at The Flint House...
Dine at any of the Gingerman Group restaurants and you know you’ll be in good hands. The Flint House is the newest addition to the Gingerman collection, located in the heart of the famous Brighton lanes... Order a minimum of 2-3 plates each (any less is a culinary offence) and a glass of Ridgeview Bloomsbury to wash it down...

📍 The Flint House 13 Hanningtons Ln, Brighton BN1 1GS


Make some room for ice-cream !!
Brass Monkey isn’t just any old ice cream parlour. The menu changes regularly but you can guarantee they’ll always have a unique flavour that will leave your taste buds shook. The honey and lavender is a non-negotiable if we’re to remain friends.
 
Boho Gelato simply needs the introduction too, for it's weird and wonderful flavours. Crack into carrot cake, pistachio or gin and tonic if you’re feeling fancy!

📍 Brass Monkey 8 Hanningtons Ln, Brighton BN1 1GS
📍 Boho Gelato 6 Pool Valley, Brighton BN1 1NJ


Recline at the beach...
Depending on what time of year you visit, you might be lucky enough to catch the darling starlings making moves over the pier. Get your pictures at the West Pier and the bandstand then mosey on down to the colourful beach hut lined Hove Lawns for a slightly quieter stroll on the pebbles.

📍 Hove Lawns Kingsway, Hove BN3 2FR
 

And before you leave, try Baby Bao at The Pond...
Brightonians know this is the good place. The independent pub serves knock out Taiwanese steamed buns and small plates. Choose from pork belly classic bao, fried chicken, tofu, smoked mushroom, roasted cod, banana blossom and grilled shrimp !!
