Get to know the UK's capital of through the eyes of a tourist. Today, we will recommend places you definitely need to visit, look at the local cultural habits and reveal several attractions.
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.
The inconspicuous island in the southwestern part of Pembrokeshire was first settled in the Iron Age. It was originally called Skalmey, a name taken from the Viking words of Skalm (short Czech sword) and ey (island). The name was probably derived from the shape of the island, which is divided into two equal sized areas connected by a narrow rocky barrier of natural origin and therefore looks like half-polished. During the Iron Age, there were estimated to be up to 200 people, so it was an important and flourishing community for some time.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
We visited the English city of Oxford last week. We saw a few sights and places of interest, but we missed Oxford University.
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.
