Today we hand over to a guest blogger - Sophie Whelpton works for Mulberry Cottages and recently went on a walk around Brighton with one of the VisitBrighton Greeters...
I really was not expecting so much from a walk around Brighton. Having lived in East Sussex for 14 years, and having used Brighton as a shopping and cultural centre for some time (have been to the theatre quite a bit and have watched bands at the Brighton Centre) I sort of felt quietly confident that I would know where we were going and what was what in Brighton. I was totally wrong!!
|We met at the wonderful Brighton Museum|
|Walked through the Pavilion Gardens|
I was fascinated, I think it was lucky that I really did not know the history of Brighton as I learned such a lot about Dr Russell and how he had influenced the wealthy and well connected in the 18th Century to come to Brighton to have the Sea Water Cure. We walked through the Lanes (I learned the difference between Lanes and the North Laine too!) and admired the quirky individual shops and specialists.
