The best day trip from London

You have seen the city enough or maybe you haven’t seen it all but you need to see something else, something fresh to entice your senses, fortunately London has many day trip options. I was deciding on the best day trip from London and after much thought and let me tell you it was not easy,  i chose Brighton. Close contenders Cambridge, Oxford, The Cotswolds

Brighton won for 3 reasons 1. Vitamin sea 2. The architecture of The Royal Pavilion 3. A complete package for a day.

The main attraction of the city is obviously the beach, the minty sea with the pebble beach is beautiful and there is literally nothing like lying on a beach chair the whole day under the sun at just 1 hour from busy city London. The Brighon pier at the beach is twinkling and inviting, just gives the happy summery feels. You can also indulge in some trampoline and water sports like kayaking and surfing at the beach. 

The Royal pavilion comes on the way to the beach from the train station. What a majestic  and unique piece of architecture in England. If no one tells you, you would say it belongs to somewhere in India, built in Indo Saracenic style prevalent in India in 19th century. The pavilion gardens is great to sit, relax and chat. The best pictures and less touristy shots of the Royal pavilion also called the Brighton Pavilion are possible from the outer part.

Brighton also has some great shopping, small shops, boutiques and high street. 
With the sea comes the yummy sea food and let me tell you the portions are quite big in Brighton as compared to London. I had a kids portion of fish and chips and it was just as big as a full portion in London. 

If you go in the summer you will find streets full of seasonal shops, restaurant sittings spilling onto the streets, music performances and many other activities. Definitely suggest checking in advance about the activities before you go. Also i would suggest to avoid the weekends if you can as half of London comes to Brighton, well not literally but u get what i am trying to say!

At under 1 hour from London Bridge station Brighton also famous for its LGBT community is bursting with attractions. From shopping to museums to beach to architecture to food to adventure there is something for everyone and deserves the title of the best day trip from london.
