Great interesting history lesson! Not sure how healthy it was to be forcibly dunked into sea water though. But it is better than some of Dr. Kellog's perscriptions for cleaning out your insides! Good old German bread is better and a less nasty solution to my way of thinking. Thanks for this entry.

"Brighton and Hove's unique character and mild, almost Mediterranean climate"

I live in Brighton, and unless they get several feet of snow every year on the Med, and suffer from bitter westerly winds and seafogs in Spring, I think you might be mistaken.

Thanks, quotes.smiley - smiley

I didn't actually say 'Mediterranean climate'. I just said 'mild climate'.

But being on the other side of the Downs myself, I tend to think it's warmer in Brighton than it is here. Perhaps it's just a case of the grass being greener. smiley - laugh

Thanks Dmitri, Elektra.smiley - smiley

I must admit to being alarmed at the idea of drinking sea water. But bathing in the stuff must have been better than some of the cures available at the time. smiley - yikes

I see. Well I cut-and-pasted it from your article, before you edited it, so goodness knows how that happened...

However, 'post edit' I see you are still clinging on to a Mediterranean allusion, with (and again, I quote) "As you leave the station, notice the quality of the light. It seems brighter, sometimes Mediterranean." I really don't see much about Brighton's climate or light which is remotely Mediterranean, it's really very much like many other British seaside resorts, with a typical cool Northern light, reflected in our cold, grey sea.

No mention of the Brighton Festival?
