If you are a coffee fiend then you need to dash to this branch of Small Batch Coffee. It is in a beautiful, grey building facing my flat. The coffee is divine and on a sunny day you can sit outside and watch 7 dials in action.

Legendary Brighton Burger joint- It's fast food but they have an amazing menu of classic and exotic burgers. All choices come with either a beef or vegetarian patty. Particularly good for a quick bite before or after a night out. There are a few branches of Grubbs dotted about the city so if you're feeling peckish, there is likely to be one near you wherever you are.

it is delightful and cosy. A great pub to spend a rainy day playing scrabble or a rauceous night with friends. In the summer it is a lovely spot to sit outside and relax with friends. It is a specialised whisky bar so if you are a big whisky fan like myself, it is a lot of fun ordering their whisky tasting trays with your friends. Highly recommended.

This is an independent vegetarian bar which faces The Great Eastern pub on Trafalgar Street. Their menu is great and my non vegetarian siblings insist on going here for dinner when they visit. There's great comfort food on the menu from curries to burritos. There's also a lovely little sunny garden out the back. There's also a fun quiz on there on Sunday nights if you choose to polish off your Brighton weekend with some intellectual output.

Parks & Nature
It's really wonderful up in Devil's Dyke. The views are breathtaking and there are many different trails to choose from. You can get the 77 bus up there from Dyke Road (Outside the fruit and veg shop) near my flat. There is a pub with a beer garden up there that you can stop off for a cooling pint after a nice, long walk.

This is a great spot. It is a little, old graveyard park near my home. St Nicholas church is across the street from the park and is one of the oldest churches in England. The rest garden has a big Iron entrance gate and is mainly used as a doggy park now. Wander around with a coffee looking at the mausoleums and the super old graves...if you're luck you might see a few puppies too.

The Royal Pavilion is a must-see when you're in Brighton. The tour is great and pretty reasonably priced. The palace is stunning. If you don't have time for the tour then make sure you walk through the gardens- It is a giant, Indian palace in the heart of the city so it's pretty hard to miss.
