This Sunday’s Cheeky Walk was a shorter one, two miles starting at Brighton station then winding through the North Laine and Lanes to the seafront before finishing back at the Museum. A lot of the places visited were familiar but it’s amazing what else you notice when you’re stopping to take photos:
The morse code above the Albert’s side door, spelled out in spraycans, apparently reads ‘Wish You Were Here’
The Banksy on the building’s side is a reproduction, despite the perspex protection.
The North Laine has some amazing stencil and sticker art, as well as the Kensington Street Murals (which are currently under threat)
On the seafront, it was a warm Spring day, despite only being February. The guidfebook pointed out the public art, as well as leading us to the JAG gallery, which I’d never been inside before.
We finished the walk with a meal at La Choza and a tour of the museum. The shorter walk wasn’t as much fun as the longer ones, and we felt we could have managed a couple back-to-back. But it was good to get out and explore the town on what felt like the first day of Spring.
