A sunny day by the seaside at Brighton – beach views and carousels

Here’s some photos from my trip to Brighton on the south coast earlier in the week. The weather was superb with bright sunny spring skies and barely any wind.

It may have been a Tuesday, but the beach bars were fairly busy, even if the deckchair attendant wasn’t exactly doing a roaring trade.

“Passacaglia” sculpture by Charles Hadcock, inspired by the limestone terraces at Black Head, Co. Clare, Ireland.

The fabulous Regency extravagance of the Royal Pavilion, created in 1822 by John Nash.

Curious graffiti.

Old school sign for Two Way Books.

The stunning double-spanned curved glass and iron roof of the 1840 Brighton railway station. The roof replaced the original canopies in 1882.
