Travel photo of the week: West Pier at dusk, Brighton

A flock of Starlings over Brighton’s iconic West Pier at dusk.

Brighton is one of the most colourful and vibrant cities in Europe. It is a fun, bohemian and compact tourist destination that attracts around 8 million visitors a year. It’s located on the South Coast of the United Kingdom, about 50 minutes by train from London. Brighton has always been a place of fun which definitely has an alternative vibe. It also has a great beachfront, history and fantastic restaurants, including many healthy and vegetarian restaurants. Take a trip here and you’ll find loads of great hotels and boutique hotels Brighton to choose from.

Brighton is particularly popular among the artistic crowd, and several theatrical events and festivals are held there throughout the yearly calender. This is a photo I took one Autumn dusk of the iconic West Pier. The derelict West Pier first opened in 1866, but since closing in 1975 has been the victim of several fires and decay from the elements. Hopes to restore the pier to its former glory have all but faded, after Heritage Lottery Funding was withdrawn.
