“I fell in love as soon as I stepped off the train” Humans of Brighton – Meet Katie
For this week’s edition of Human’s of Brighton we met Katie, a Fashion Communications student, to find out what she loves about Brighton and where she thinks serves the best coffee.
Hi Katie! What initially made you decide to move to Brighton?
I came here for uni. I first considered Brighton because it’s the best for my course, but when I came to visit I fell in love with the city as soon as I stepped off the train.
What do you like about living here?
The people. We’re all f*cking crazy but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
If you could change one thing about Brighton what would it be?
The approach to homelessness. Whatever is being done now clearly isn’t working.
Could you describe your perfect day in Brighton?
Sat on the beach during a heatwave, reading a really good book. Depending on the amount of seagulls around, I’d maybe get some fish and chips from my favourite place, next to Fortune of War. Once I’d finished my book, I’d walk home in my favourite Doc Marten sandals and stalk my ex.
And finally, what’s the best coffee in the city?
Pelicano on Sydney Street. They do a mean oatmilk vanilla latte.
