Brighton in General
Advantages: By the sea, fresh fish & chips
Disadvantages: Extremely depressing
The last time I was in Brighton was a few years ago. There are several ways of getting there. One can take the train or take the car for instance. I went by car. Upon arriving in Brighton, what immediately caught my attention is the architecture. Compared to other seaside resorts around the world, the architecture in Brighton is poor.
For example the buildings and general town layout just seem to be symmetrically incorrect, set in the wrong direction or just plain ugly. The seaside and Brighton peer also lack appeal creating a very depressing atmosphere. This is not a place I could imagine living let alone last a day. While people from Brighton may be friendly, when visiting any location anywhere I first judge the appearance of the town and in this area Brighton fails miserably.
The only positive are the possibility of some fresh air and being able to walk along the sea especially for people coming from built up areas such as London. The fish and chips in Brighton is extremely fresh, I recommend anyone visiting to try it.
To sum things up, Brighton council should start a program to demolish the old tatty buildings that make up Brighton and replace them with modern and stylish architecture.
