Just returned from Brighton today, after flying into LHR yesterday. Weather was perfect for a beach trip, high was 79 degrees and sunny. Had a nice train ride down from London Victoria, bummed around Brighton sampling the sights (Royal Pavilion, beach) and had a nice beef roast outside in the sun.
The guys were very helpful and I got out of there with a pair of oxblood monkeyboots. Had to size down a bit, as I normally wear a size 8.5D in Allen Edmonds, which usually translates into a 7.5 UK but went down to a 7.0 UK and it fits fine. It was hard not to walk out with two pairs of those boots!
For SF'ers in the area, I'd highly recommend the trip. I didn't go down to Brighton expressly for JTG but for a 20 pound round trip from London Victoria, it may just be worth it!
