Here at Experience Days, our UK office recently went out for some fun in the sun! We were visited by our web designer Marcelo, who had travelled over from Argentina. So, we decided to do some typical tourist activities to show him the very best of Brighton (as if we needed an excuse to go out). It was his first visit to the UK and luckily the great British weather was on our side – it wouldn’t have been much fun on the pier if it had been pouring down!
On our first trip, we headed down to the pier for a classic seaside dinner – fish and chips. You can’t beat one of Britain’s favourite meals when it’s done right, especially munching away whilst you’re sitting on the pier and the seagulls are soaring around you (as long as they aren’t trying to grab your food!) We decided to eat at the Palm Court Restaurant, which was definitely a good shout. We all stuck true to the classic, ordering cod and chips and the best complement – mushy peas. After we were finished and our bellies were full, we walked along the pier and watched the sunset along Brighton’s idyllic coastline.
Next on our adventure was a visit to the brand new BA i360 observation tower built along the seafront. Everyone in the office has seen it being built over the last few years, so we were very excited to see what it would be like at the top! And what better way for Marcelo to see Brighton than from 450ft in the sky. As the sun was shining and the skies were clear, we could see for miles around the coast and across the Sussex Downs. As I’m a not a lover of heights (and a bit of a scaredy-cat if I’m honest) I was apprehensive before I went on, but you barely notice the height and the views are worth the fear. There is also a bar in the ‘bubble’ where you can purchase a celebratory drink (to calm your nerves). We could even spot the office and our blue benches on the balcony!
After our flight, we set of for our last supper with Marcelo at the new Stock Burger restaurant. Many of us ordered the ‘Craft Beer Classic’; a mountain of beer battered onion rings, roast garlic mayo, smoked sweet cured streaky bacon, beef burger, crisp lettuce and classic stock burger sauce, it was impressive to say the least. Everyone in the office had a fab few days out, it was sad to see Marcelo go but hopefully we will all see him again soon.
