So, my Girlfriend is goind to Brighton (near London, I think) for two weaks. Since the offical tourist-Internetpage is pretty lame I thought I ask the Pit what they know about Brighton.

Just tell me anything. Btw, do we have some people from Brighton?

Has a nice big guitar shop, but then again, there are frequent gay pride parades.

Well, ever since I was a young boy, I played that silver ball and this deaf, dumb, and blind kid sure played a mean pinball from Soho to Brighton...
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

It's like HAAAAAYYYYYYY. At least you won't have to worry about her cheating on you; all the straight guys are chased away by the rest of the males there.

Never been there, but I hear it's full of homos.

Probably still better than Brighton Ontario though.

EDIt: also if she's going with a tour group she'll probably see it but tell her to check out the pavilion. Great building.

Pretty cultural, theatres, the Jubilee Library etc the Royal Pavilion is an immense building and stay away from Kemp Town or she'll be eaten alive. There's the GAK as well and the whole place is really, really gay. But not that gay. Gay enough. We have a pebble beach and and promenade running along it that's only good when it's sunny (which is roughly every fifth day). All in all it's much better than Blackpool which smells, Weston which is boring and anywhere else just isn't as gay. Did I mention it's REALLY GAY?

It really isn't that gay. But what would I know, it's not as if I've lived here my whole life...

EDIT: Don't go to Hove, they've been leeching off us for like a decade now. It's also not as gay.

hmm, i like all these people saying its filled to bursting with gays.

its really not, there are a few gay clubs where you dont really wanna go, and the gay pride parade... other than that its a really nice place, and you just dont notice the gay culture unless your gay yourself.

otherwise, deffo check out the laines, particularly GAK, epic guitar shop got drums basses audio everything. and theres some really cool **** in the back streets.
and the pier if youve never been.
look at some of the stalls along the seafront.
but the little niche shops in the laines are where its at

just go explore and see what you dig. i get something new every time.
and yes, ive been practically every summer since i was 11, and its still good.

New Years, we were at the beach, my friend was completely smashed (he's English, but living in Aus for the past 9 years) and this drunk (i think?) girl approached us, heard his accent, and immediately put on this dodgy English accent saying "I'm from Brighton" and "I'm not wearing any panties". Lol my drunk friend was jizzing in his pants, needless to say.

As far as places that begin with BR go it's pretty good. Not as good as Bristol, but a fair nudge above Bracknell, because Bracknell is wank.

Brighton is full of magnetic pandas and strange wobbly skyfish. And gays. Its all rumours though, I've never been and never will. I'm not allowed out anymore. Hope that helps.

Gay capital of britain. One side of the pier is full of gay clubs. The other side is fine. It's about 90 mins on the train from london. Quite a nice place but it's full to bursting with queers.

It's nice really. But if you go there on a bank holiday circa 1964/5 and you wear leather then watch out for

It has a burnt down pier. Which is cool.

Lots of rainbow flags, but you won't actually see anyone like that though.

It's a bit shit, overall, as there's nothing to really look at. The pier is boring roo.
