You can not visit Brighton and not know the Royal Pavilion palace, even if it is outside to admire its architecture and aesthetics. Its neo-oriental aesthetic will give you some spectacular photographs, both on the outside and inside. The entrance costs 6 pounds and it is really worth knowing the banquet hall, the music room, the galleries and the bedrooms that once housed the royal family.
It is the amusement park located on the pier of the most famous beach in England. If you go with children you will love it but adults too, so there are no excuses not to enter.
Near the beach of Brighton are the famous colorful stalls belonging, in their great majority, to fishermen of the area. They are simple huts in which fishing material is kept and that many families use to cook the fish that the fisherman of the family brings to eat.
The striking of these booths are their colors and designs. The photographs here are spectacular and it is still a curious place to see.
The famous street artist known as Banksy left samples of his art through the city of Brighton. Very close to the train station you can find the picture of two British kissing policemen who are covered by a protective glass.
