O que fazer
Easily accessible from London, Brighton is the quintessential beach escape. It may have been heavily gentrified but there are still enough reminders of the classic British seaside – think penny slot machines and a tempting vinegary whiff of fish and chips in the sea air – for a nostalgia fix. Amble around The Lanes, popping your head into colourful shops selling quirky antiques and unique jewellery. Try to win a teddy bear before whizzing down a Helter Skelter and buckling into a dodgem car on the Brighton Pier. Then head to the top of i360 tower, which is even taller than The London Eye, for a seagull’s-eye view of the city and surrounding coastline. If you'd rather stay at sea level, take Volk's Electric Railway: a Victorian train trundling along the seafront.
Brighton pode ter sido massivamente gentrificada, mas ainda encontra muitas evocações das clássicas cidades costeiras britânicas. Pense nas slot machines de um péni e no tentador aroma avinagrado do peixe frito e das batatas fritas misturado com o cheiro a mar.
