Is this your first time at Ellie & Co? If so, hello and welcome to my travel blog of curiosities based by the seaside in Brighton, England! I’m glad you popped by and I’m looking forward to showing you around, and hope you find something to inspire your next weekend or day trip to Brighton. On the travel theme, I wanted to have fun with my site so I decided to organise it like a hotel. There’s the Check In desk where you are now, a Concierge for travel posts; Room Service for travel-related lifestyle posts; Cocktail Bar for reminiscing, people watching and gossiping; and a Gift Shop. Let me take you for a little tour to get you settled in:


Concierge Desk:

Secret Brighton – All my favourite unusual and off-the-beaten path discoveries in the city in one place.

Brighton Like a Local – Tips for things Brighton locals would see and do, local restaurant recommendations, shopping tips and itineraries to help you plan your trip to Brighton.

Forget Brighton – My growing collection of stories on off-beat, little-known gems  I’ve either visited or armchair travelled to around England, Europe and the rest of the world. This is also where I’ll posts my own travel stories.
