For a while we leave Central Europe, we move to the Irish Sea, the home of the Isle of Man. Its coat of arms is rather interesting as it shows three armed legs in the shape of triskelion. It is an ancient symbol that appeared in many cultures that don’t exist today. Yet today, you might see it at Sicily’s flag.
Today we take you to the seaside town of Brighton and Hove. As the name suggests, it is a combination of two independent cities offering up to 1997 (status of Queen Elizabeth II in 2001), which offer a rich history, beautiful monuments, quirky culture and sports.
Brighton's seafront offers many attractions. Today we will visit the British Airways i360 futuristic lookout tower, located opposite the equally famous West Pier.
Today we visit the second oldest working aquarium in the world - the Sea Life Brighton. It is interesting not only because of its history dating back to 1872, but you can also take a walk through the longest English submarine tunnel.
From the magnificent Palace Pier through the Old Steine garden, we head to one of Brighton's most sought-after attractions, the former Royal Pavilion.
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.
Today we look to Brighton, more precisely to the local town hall, located on Bartolomějské Square near the coast. The neoclassical building from the 1930s serves not only as a municipal office, but also holds weddings and you can visit one unusual museum.
After visiting the 360-degree lookout tower, we will stroll down the Brighton Coast today, decorated with architecturally impressive buildings. If we headed toward King's Road, we could get to the renovated 1884 Victorian gazebo.
After the natural and architectural beauty of Wales we will move to the south of England. More precisely to the historic region of Sussex, where our first stop will be the town of Lewes.
Join us to visit the breathtaking town of Windsor, less than 30 kilometers west of London. This historic mansion has been the home of the English royal family since time immemorial, its life-giving artery is the River Thames and its immediate neighbor is the equally famous town of Eton.
Last week we walked through the student town of Eton and today we head to Windsor. Perhaps the most sought-after landmark of the city, which is also its dominant, is Windsor Castle of the same name.
After a short break we return to England, more precisely to the county of Oxfordshire, where we visit one of the most famous university cities in the world - Oxford. This 160,000 center of education offers almost forty dormitories, amazing history, monuments, personalities and, last but not least, its noble atmosphere.
We visited the English city of Oxford last week. We saw a few sights and places of interest, but we missed Oxford University.
Today we look to the English Channel coast. Our goal this time will be the famous Seven Sisters, which extends between Seaford and Eastbourne in the south of England.
