Days Out: Brighton Sealife Centre

Yesterday we had an underwater adventure at Brighton’s Sealife Centre. If you’ve never been before it’s easy to find: head to the pier and you can’t miss it! You can access is from the street or from the beach and there is plenty of parking on Madeira Drive (though it’s not free so publish transport is probably cheaper!) Brighton Sealife…

Oskar’s Amazing Adventure (Book & Theatre Show)

This coming Saturday we will be going into Brighton to see a showing of Oskar’s Amazing Adventure at the Komedia in Brighton. We’ve been sent the book in advance so we could get used to the story and find out what Oscars adventure is all about. Both my kids absolutely love live performances but they also love reading so it’s really…

Brighton: Independent Homeware Stores

As I’m away on holiday my friend and fellow Brighton-deweller Dakota has offered to write a post for me! Over to her… I’ll make no bones about it; I love living in Brighton. Not because of the beach, although it’s still my favourite spot for a BBQ in summer, and not because of the people, although I maintain that they…

Travel: Two days in Brighton with Jurys Inn

Brighton is amazing, I love it as a city so much; it’s vibrant, unique, there is so much to do and I’ll never get bored of it. It’s just a shame that having kids meant we were priced out of the market when it came to buying in the city! I lived right in the city centre for most of…

Hippo on the Moon at Brighton Theatre Royal

If you’ve read the book you’ll know it doesn’t take long to read, so I was wondering how it would translate to a stage show.…

Restaurants: Prezzo Brighton Marina #LaFamigliana

It’s no secret that I love to eat, and though both kids love to eat they don’t always love to eat the right things! Thankfully pasta is one of the things they do really enjoy, so a big bowl of pasta to dig into is right up their street. Prezzo have introduced family sharing dishes called ‘La Famigliana’ and we…

Brighton: Isaac At [Restaurant Review]

‘Isaac At’ has been on our radar for a while, and on Thursday we spent one of the most enjoyable evenings in a long time, and I wish we’d visited sooner. Tucked away at the bottom of Gloucester Street it’s easily accessible from the station or on foot. Originally a pop up (hence the ‘at’ as they popped up in…
