What do you do when it's pouring down (especially with a two-year-old in tow?). Do try
- catching the bus at Brighton Park and Ride
(apparently riding on the top deck and bouncing precariously up and down through the streets of Brighton was hilarious, if rather terrifying for the adults)
- the Dolphin Derby on Brighton Pier (the most fun you can have for £1, and heinously addictive)
- Fishers Farm Park - hey, they have carousels, climbing walls, tractor rides and any number of goats/rabbits/horses you can stroke. It's pricey, but unlike a lot of other money-grabbing farm places, there's no other charge once you're inside.
- Strada in Brighton (good service, some nice food, but the small one and I were definitely unwell later on that afternoon after eating the same pizza, which is rather suspicious...)
