One Month One City – Brighton & Seaford

by on Feb.17, 2015, under Life Story

Because of recommendation of the man that his home I’ve visited 2 weeks ago, I have 2 destination to go: Whitby. And I also want to go to Lake District which is very famous here. But the itinerary is not possible since it is too far to London. I don’t want to spend money on accomodation, just one day out! So, my choice is Seven Sisters Country Park.

When I ask my friend a one day out, he wants to go to Brighton. I didn’t think it’s nice but no problem, I can still go to Seaford which is just close by. I was right. Brighton perhaps is very big but the touristy place is very small. We went to Royal Pavilion but it is not as beautiful as the picture from Google. We went to the beach. Beaches in my country is much more beautiful, with coconut trees (of course!). Brighton Pier is nice. It is a fun fair which I will consider as cheap here. The price of similar place in my hometown, called “THR Sriwedari” is much cheaper though. After 2 hours wandering around, we had a meal. Seafood, of course. I imagined it would be like seafood in my country, like real one. But everything is mostly fish & chips. I ordered crab but it was crab cake.

We had nothing else to do in Brighton. We went to Seven Sisters Country Park, around 1 hour by bus from Brighton. We bought Plus Bus which is very worth. The view from the bus is stunning! Do choose front upper deck of the bus if you go there. You can see cliff and sea in the right, while in the left you can see farm and beautiful old British houses, just like Whitby. One hour didn’t feel so long.

We arrived in Visitor Center and we asked the volunteer where to go. It’s better to drop here because they will tell you which track that you need to take if you want to see certain part, like for example classic view of Seven Sisters. The track is so muddy. I didn’t expect that since I thought it’s just a usual park, so I used wrong shoes.  It was white and it didn’t stay white. It’s  okay because the view is so beautiful there. Perfect! there is natural river, with farm, and little lake where you can see reflection. We chose “red route” to see classic view of Seven Sisters. It took around 2 hours return but we walked and stopped to enjoy the view. I can’t say much about it. If you want to go there without going to Brighton, Seaford has a station. You won’t regret!
