Things to do in Brighton in the rain

It’s definitely winter and looking out the window today it’s not very inspiring to go out of the house at all! However if you do fancy venturing out of the house on a wet and windy day, why not have a look at our list of things to do in Brighton in the rain.

Visit the Royal Pavilion

Royal-Pavilion-in-the-snow-300x300The Royal Pavilion once belonged to George IV and he decorated it throughout in an opulent and theatrical style. You can visit the music room, ball room, bedrooms, kitchens and much more as part of this visit. Fascinating and educational you can get a real feel of how life must have been for royalty in the 18th Century.

The Pavilion was also used as a military hospital in World War One for Indian military troops serving on the western front in France. A photographic display shows how they would have lived and been treated throughout this time

They also have an eccentrically decorated tearoom which is well worth a visit for the decor alone! They also have a  Pavilion Tea Company located on the ground floor selling teas, coffees and light snacks including delicious cream teas.

Voted number 1 by Trip Advisor of things to do in Brighton. For more information visit http://brightonmuseums.org.uk/royalpavilion/

Play an Escape Game

lady cThese are popping up all over Brighton, the one we tried was Lady Chastity’s Reserve at the Black Lion Pub. The aim is to solve a series of clues to complete the puzzle within a one hour time frame. The puzzles range from physical to mentally challenging and the host Gabriel is on hand to help if needed. The room is small but there is lots to explore and this adds to the spooky atmosphere of the game.

Our Brighton Second Hand Furniture Showroom is a Treasure Trove!!

brighton second hand furniture showroom

Our Brighton second hand furniture showroom has been described by one of our lovely customers today as a treasure trove and we just happen to agree!! We have hundreds of pieces of furniture, ornaments, pictures, mirrors, tea sets, garden ornaments to name but a few. We have had customers spend hours looking through the amazing pieces we have in our Brighton second hand furniture showroom. Each piece has a history of its own and many have been around for many more years than most of us! Most of our second hand furniture comes from us completing house clearances in and around Brighton, often when people have passed away or moved away without taking their belongings. Sometimes when we pick up a piece of furniture, it is sturdy, unmarked and functional – we all have furniture like that, it does the job it is intended for and looks fab! However sometimes we will pick up a piece of furniture that just feels full of history – for example we recently had in the showroom an old writing desk, the outside was fairly ordinary but inside you could tell that many people had sat at this desk and used it for writing. We would love to know what they had been writing – love letters? A novel? Newspaper stories? We will never know but we love to dream!

This is one of our favourite things about buying and selling second hand furniture, we love to hear the stories behind some of the pieces. Often their is significance to the family, but they just don’t have room or have changed the style of their house and the furniture just doesn’t work for them anymore. It is much more satisfying for a customer to sell their item of furniture to us knowing it will go to another family who will love it as much as they did,

Want to know more about our Brighton second hand furniture showroom?

Why not come and visit us at The Poynings Cat Boarding Hotel, Henfield Road, Poynings, BN45 7AZ. We are on the A281 between the Rushfield Garden Centre and The Ginger Fox pub. Or give us a ring on 01273 857640.
