A magical place
“I think my best place in Brighton is the Pavilion Gardens. When I first moved to Brighton, I used to walk through the Pavilion Gardens on my way to work. I moved to Brighton in springtime and so all the flowers were just coming out and it was this really lovely, ‘Wow, I’m not in London anymore, I’m in this kind of magical place with this really mental Disney kind of style Pavilion.’ There is this really lovely old fashioned park with railings and I think it’s even got park keepers.
Haunting mournful brass band music
In the first summer I was here I discovered by chance one day, that you could not only hire deck chairs and spend your Sunday afternoon sitting in a deck chair in Pavilion Gardens, but they had a Salvation Army brass band that would play under the trees. So you could buy an ice-cream, sit in your deck chair and have really beautiful, kind of haunting mournful brass band music, which was really really lovely, so I think my best place is Pavilion Gardens.”
