Had not been to Brighton since university days back in the late 90's. Felt like going back home. Place was still familiar and brought back good memories.

You can easily get lost in the atmosphere of this area . Keep walking and you will find what you're looking for. Plenty of interesting things to look at and pretty much something for everyone
