I think I have said before, that I like Brighton, I love The Lanes and the town. It's not much of a place to take the kids on holiday though. It does however cater for adults well.

You wouldn't stay very long on it now Phil, owned and run by the Noble organisation, rip -off merchants.
You buy tokens from a machine for the rides, each token costs £1, and there's not a ride under 4 tokens.
They also lease all the kiosks on the pier (rock, doughnuts etc. my mate Glenn Ford (not the film star) had a hog-roast up until last summer,
the Nobles found out how much he was taking, and upped his rent by 50%, he complained so they threw him off and opened it themselves.

John

Essentially it is no different to any other seaside town, I have swore time and time again never to return to Blackpool but I do. Its the kids they love the place. Last time we went I took 4 grandchildren. On the first day we went swimming in the morning at a cost in excess of £60 and my wife and myself never swam. Then on the pleasure beach later it cost in excess of a £100, my wife and myself once again never went on any of the rides.

The day wasn't even over then, I think that we did over £250 that day alone, and there were six more days exactly like that. Believe me paying just under £60 for a day a the zoo was a welcome break. Never let anyone say that I don't holiday abroad because it cheaper to stay here.

How noble of them John !
Personally i think Brighton has deteriorated, especially The lanes, which used to be interesting, but now are nothing special

Mike I think Brighton is now the pits, full all the D'S- DRUGS, DOGS. DOSSERS, DRUNKARDS, and DOGOODERS.
Really don't know why I live here, too old and too much aggro now to move.

That was heart felt John but I know exactly what you mean.

When ever I come back to Birmingham on a visit, which is quite often, it is very noticable how more and more things have changed each time. My husband gets quite miffed about the number of buildings he and some of his Irish friends helped build in the Birmingham of the 50's and 60's, working from 6am to 11pm at night 7 days a week, only to find that they have now been demolished and a "modern" building is in its place and all the old landmarks, pubs etc and places he lived have vanished too.
