Great Britain, Brighton – The Most Beautiful Observation Tower in England

Published: 6.10.2017
Brighton is the most popular and famous sea resort on the English Channel. Once, this large city was a simple fishing village which became increasingly popular among English nobility in the 18th century. They travelled here to breathe fresh sea air and relax in luxurious spa. Today, Brighton is open to anyone. Its pebble beaches are lined with souvenire stores and various attractions.

Take your time and walk the pier thoroughly. It was built in the Victorian period. There is hardly any other in England that would match this one. Originally, there were three piers altogether. One was destroyed by a storm, the other has been in a state of decay for many years. The last stretches about half a kilometers from shore. Apart from souvenire stores and thrill-rides, there are joek stores or stands where you can buy the English classic fish and chips. Also, take a ride in Volk's Electric Railway which was built in 1833 making it the oldest electric railway in the world.

Nicméně na dobu 18. a 19. století najdete ve městě mnoho krásných památek. Jednou z nich je také královský pavilon (Royal Pavilion), jenž se nachází v centru města. Jakmile ho uvidíte, napadne vás, že ho sem snad někdo přemístil z Indie. Tato dříve letní královská residence pro krále Jiřího IV. totiž byla postavena v indo-saracénském stylu podle návrhu architektura Johna Nashe. Nejlépe si tento velkolepý palác užijete skrze komentovanou prohlídku. Mezi nejzajímavější místnosti v paláci jednoznačně patří opulentní sál, kde se konaly bankety, královské ložnice nebo hudební místnost. Jakmile opustíte palác, vydejte se na náměstí Sussex Square, kde jsou nádherné domy z počátku 19. století, z nichž některé jsou přístupné veřejnosti.

British Airways i360 is one of the newest attractions. This observation tower is the highest building in the city (161 m) and was built only in 2016. It also observation towerfeatures the only vertical cable car in the world and its shape resembles a needle. The observation deck goes up to 140 meters and can hold up to 200 people at once while offering a splendid view over Brighton and the English Channel. Moreover, there is a small souvenir store and a tearoom.

Also, we highly recommend to visit the Toy and Model Museum situated beneath the train station. The museum's souvenir shop operates also as a visitor information center where you can learn information on events scheduled to happen in Brighton. Brighton Festival is one of such events which stretches across a period of three weeks every May. Artists from all around the world come here and the performacnes include wie variety musical genres from jazz, chamber music to church concerts. Moreover, you can visit film screenings and other cultural events..
