“Great coffee and healthy snacks, this trendy cafe in Ormond Road has something for everyone. It can get crowded, so pop in early and don't be put off by queues outside the door - the line moves pretty fast. ”

Beach
“Visit the brightly coloured iconic Brighton Beach Boxes and for some great insta snaps! Jump on the bikes and head south along the beach bike track. You'll pass the Brighton Baths (beautiful in summer for doing some laps safely in the sea) and continue on until you get to the Brighton beach. Make sure you look for it in Google maps, as you'll need to head down a path to get there - you can't see them from the track. ”
