Brighton Beach

Everybody loves the beach–clearly, as every student decided to save their homework for another day and come to Brighton Beach. About a two-hour drive from Oxford, it’s a pebble beach with lots to do. On the waterfront, there are arcades, amusement, and Regency-era architecture. Brighton Pier opened in 1899 and has delicious-smelling carnival food and exciting rides.

But what was most different from Oxford was the beach! And students enjoyed laying out in the sun, taking photos together, and even swimming in the Atlantic.

Back at home, students enjoyed the entertainment of Tony Rae, the Chairman of the British Council of Hypnotists. Tony persuaded hypnotized students to flee from imaginary sharks, cuddle up in the Antarctic, and race in the Silverstone Circuit. After the show, students chatted to the volunteers about how much they remembered!
