Staycation with Brighton Getaways

After a somewhat stressful summer, a midweek short break to Brighton was defiantly needed
Initially planned as a boozy girls trip we decided at the last moment that we were not about that lift and instead chose to have a chilled staycation with the kids
Planning the trip defiantly made me nostalgic for my youth, as I loved going to Brighton with my family, and couldn’t wait to get on the road (Even if no one wanted to sing beside the seaside with me)
We arrived in Brighton in record time and even though the weather wasn’t as good as the previous days we were all determined to have a lovely time.  first, stop once we arrived was check out our digs for the night.
Courtesy of the lovely folks at  Brighton Getaways we stayed at the Central Brighton Majestic Mews. This quirky little pad was close to all of the Brighton action and the kids absolutely loved it!  Straight away we all felt at home, every amenity we could have needed was provided and it was the little touches such as the pineapple cushions and the fairy lights defiantly made the world of difference to our stay.






Once we were all settled and the kids had claimed a room we were ready to hit the Brighton streets1
We had originally planned to surprise the children with a trip to the Brighton toy museum but when to mine and Stephanie’s dismay those millennial kids were not in the least interested (Its all Ipads and laptops to them bah!) disappointed but not defeated we decided to take a walk down to the beach, check out the pier then perhaps check out Choccywoccydoodah.
Our make shift Brighton walk was the perfect way to stretch our legs and get some fresh air into our lungs after being cooped up in the car for hours.
We managed to make it down to the beach, had a quick look at the pier (Promising the kids that we would be back the following day so that they could go on the rides) then went in search of Choccywoccydoodah (I was probably more excited than the kids )  Unfortunately by the time we got there  was too late to go on to the waiting list L which was especially disappointing since we got caught in the rain trying to find it the place. On the Brightside, we found the cutest coffee shop which served us amazing hot chocolates. 
While we warmed ourselves up we decided to rejig out plans again early dinner, chilled evening, early to bed, then get up early to get the most out of our day in Brighton.
Back at the apartment after a long decision/debate about what we wanted to eat for dinner, we decided to go with the children’s vote KFC then we settled down in front of the tv and played a game of Brighton Monopoly before going to bed (Another nice touch Brighton Getaways).
The following day we all got up bright and early ready to get as much out of the day as we could before going back to London.
First things first Breakfast! We had heard good things about the breakfast club we headed straight there however after being told that there was a 40-minute wait for a table we decided to check out Café Rouge instead.
With our bellies full we did some window shopping in town before going Choccywoccydoodah determined to get in this time.
Straight away we were ushered up to a table where we ordered some Choccywoccydoodah goodies.
Once we had finished there we made our way down to the pier where the kids spent the majority of the day enjoying the various rides at the Brighton Palace Pier.  
Once the kids were screamed our and famished we headed over to Harry Ramsden’s for their famous fish and chips before packing up to go back to London BAH!
In all, we had a lovely time in Brighton despite the weather not being a nice as it could have been. I will defiantly be back minus kids to check out the nightlife and actually go to the toy museum.
