The North Laine
The North Laine (Laines means lanes in olde England) was B&Q-ing the part of Brighton I would most likely visit again. The Laines are essentially a smaller, far more manageable version of London's Shoreditch or Soho. This part of town is all laid out with independent stores and cafes, with enough quirkiness to almost forget you're in a regular seaside town. The North Laine (sometimes spelt the South Laine) is one of Brighton's several bohemian quarters, reached via the narrow, winding streets that lead down from Western Road to this district.
It's a quaint, old-world place with a smattering of independent cafés and boutiques, full of characterful dollshouses whose windows are crammed with intriguing displays, Brighton Town Press (brightontownpress.co.uk).

Nestled at the bottom of the South Coast, Brighton is bursting with excitement. You could potentially walk to the pier in less than ten minutes and back in the same day, soaking up the constant party atmosphere from the amazing restaurants to buzzing clubs. Brighton is a great town to study in. I spent my first two years living on campus at University of Sussex, which provided a great social life together with a healthy environment for my studies.
When I think of Sussex, these are the images that come to mind: students drifting down the Lewes Road with armfuls of books; the horizon dotted with white sails as laughter fills the air; grabbing dinner before a show at the Marlborough Theatre. Just when I thought I could never love Sussex more, my final year has pulled out all the stops. I have used this blog title a lot in the past.

I live in Brighton, and having grown up here, I can safely say that there is nowhere on earth quite like it. The reason for this is not only because of the sea, riding, good food, nice people and the fourteen million things to do — the real reason is because of the remoteness. Brighton is a huge city (around 300,000 people), yet compared to London or some other cities, it is still reasonably small (by no means small) and you don’t have that crowd mentality that you get with most big cities.
I suppose that adds to how amazing Brighton is. It's pretty rare to get to see an amazing sunset in the UK, so when the opportunity arose I took it. A friend of mine had a spare ticket for Navy vs Leicester rugby at Twickenham and I'd never been, so decided that a university lecture on urban planning wouldn't be missed if I didn't go. The weather leading up to the game wasn't great, but after a heavy downpour in the morning the clouds cleared and golden rays of sunlight shone through over Richmond Park.
Saying this, it was minus degrees so it was not warm at all. Pink sky over a view point, over looking Brighton.

I am a second year student at the University of Sussex and wanted to share a few photos with you.

The Royal Pavillion
Hello everyone. I’m Lauren, a second year student at the University of Sussex, England and I am writing you from my beloved home sweet home. As many of you may know, I am in the process of selling my home to come live with my parents and brother in Arizona. The reason I am doing this is that unfortunately I am having to take a semester off from school here to recover from surgery on my back which was severely injured while playing ice hockey in England two years ago.
Well, it was approximately one hundred years ago. One sunny day in December, a young boy left his home with nothing but a loaf of bread and a bottle of water. It was christmas time. He was around 8 years old. He walked over the mountains, across the seas and through the woods until he got to his destination: The Royal Pavillion, Brighton. From this day on it became his Christmas tradition to visit. There is something particularly magical about the pavilion at Christmas-time when you go ice-skating under the twinkling lights.
