We’re lovin’ champagne and cupcakes!
Not your usual Valentine’s day partnership, but what the hell; we are not the usual Valentine’s people! Champagne and cupcakes on Valentine’s Day is to be the food of love for some lucky Brighton schmoozers, at a special event on in the town centre.
On Monday the 14th the Angel food bakery is opening its heart. With a table booked for the evening, you’ll get a glass of the bubbly stuff and some sweetness to nibble on, before being tempted by the dazzling array of fancies.
You get just half an hour – not so bad as there are other sweet things to be tasted on this night…Slotted in the South Lanes’ maze of curios, the bakery is the town’s only dedicated ‘cupcakery’.
Only free range eggs are harmed in the making of its tooth looseners, and you’ll have so many cakes to choose from, you’ll need a doberman-size doggy bag.

As a town known for its wild night-life, it’s rarely seen as a place for romance. However, there are a few spots outside of the hotels in Brighton where love can linger…
So, with Valentine’s just around the corner, here’s our five most romantic places in Brighton.
Not an obvious choice. But outside of peak season, you can find yourselves alone wandering between empty rides at sunset. There’s even music piped through the intercom. Many a romantic moment’s been had on our pier.
An obvious choice, especially if you live here. Try further towards Hove if you’re after a little privacy. Look around and you’ll find a suntrap to settle in; dig a bottle of wine into the stones and enjoy a glass together.
If you’ve not been, or are visiting Brighton for the first time, get to Stanmer Village. From the train station walk up into the park. It will take you back in time, and into the heart of a very traditional English village – take a picnic.
Western Road Looking West (at sunset)
I don’t know why this happens but heading out of town at sunset along Western road, watch for the craziest of urban sunsets. Skies turned a shocking pink before darkening to purple, and shop windows pick up a golden glow from the dying sun. Turn around and you’ll see the high rise blocks changing colour, as the light burns back off their windows.
The Grand Hotel
There’s still something special about walking into the Grand Hotel. Sneak in – you are allowed in, it just always feels as if you are trespassing – order a cocktail (might need an overdraft facility) and pretend for a moment: it could be you!
