Sometimes Odd, Always Entertaining

There’s nowhere in Brighton that encapsulates the seaside, like Brighton Palace Pier. 

What I like about it, are the sounds; children screaming with excitement as they get buffeted by the winter storms, or whirled around on the fairground rides.

The different accents and languages from the thousands of tourists and day-trippers

The squawking of the seagulls as they snatch doughnuts or chips from yet another unsuspecting victim

The DJ with his sometimes odd, but always entertaining choice of music

But most of all, the sound of thousands of starlings as they pass within a few feet of you, as they come into roost under the pier, during the winter months

It’s all free and it’s all year round
