Street Art in Brighton, England


One of my most favourite things about being in Brighton, England was being able to finally say I had seen a Banksy street art piece in person. There are a few in Brighton and the city boasts many interesting pieces that will continue to change through out the year.  Here are some of my favourites from Brighton as captured by my iPhone with the Hipstamatic app.   263669_683554659531_4127584_n268649_683554679491_1630526_n250338_662882741221_347947_n254096_663774474181_6695903_n253639_662876518691_2972766_n247905_662876543641_852068_n

Q: Have you gotten to see a Banksy and if so which one and where?



Last week I really loved Margo’s post 6 Steps to Make the Most of a Day in Venice.  Not only does she have the best tips (like eating pizza!) but I fell in love with her travel photography. She has a way of making you feel like you are on a trip to Italy with her and it is second best to being there in person.  As someone who has grown up in Italy and has been to Venice, I felt very homesick and enjoyed her post very much.

Next week is the last Tuesday of the month which means it is our themed Travel prompt! Feel free to join in if you like.  The theme will be:

Share three places…the place you have been that you have loved the most, the place you cannot wait to visit, and something about the place you live.


Also next week we announce the cohosts for the next three months! Stay tuned!

Now on to the link up! To link up with us, make sure to comment below and with my cohosts Melanie and Tina. Then hop around and share the love and experience more wanderlust from the other participants.  The full details are below and as always, have fun!

  • Margo

    Thanks so much for the support Bonnie Rose! I am flattered by your kind words, I’m so happy you enjoyed my Venice post. What do you say we take a road trip and get some more of that pizza? :)

  • Jamie | ink + adventure

    I love the street art! I’m a bit of a nerd so the Hoth scene with the AT-ATs might be my favorite. the cars on pins are pretty impressive though – are those real cars?

  • Laura Rocksteady

    I love street art and taking photos of it – I think the best cities for street are (well from my experience) are Brighton, Bristol, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Bratislava

    Joining in the week and can’t wait to read the other posts :)

    I love Banksy, try to spot him in England whenever I can! The policemen kissing was always one of my favourites!

  • Eternally WanderLyn

    I love the street art in Brighton! Wandering the city and looking at the street art is one of my favorite things to do. :)

  • Tina @ Girl-Meets-Globe

    I’m intrigued by the cars! I’ll need to go find those! We are so close to Brighton and haven’t been yet since moving here (have visited once before though).

  • Julie

    Those hanging cars would stop me in my tracks!

  • Food Booze & Baggage

    This looks so cool! The hanging cars are a really interesting piece. I love getting pictures of cool street art while traveling

  • Anna

    I love street art but have never seen a Banksy. I love the one of the policemen kissing!

  • Dannielle @ Chic-a-DeeDee

    I don’t know that I’ve seen an original, but we’ve got three prints hanging in our hallway. I love the messages he portrays.

  • Britt @ One&20

    This is so cool!

  • Setarra

    Love Banksy! I’ve seen a few of his works around NYC when I used to live there.

  • Molly @ The Move to America

    I love the Banksy artwork – so clever and with an interesting commentary. Great stuff!

  • Sara Rose

    There’s a Banksy right next to my flat. Quite a few in Bristol worth seeing!

  • Meredith

    Those are so cool! I especially love the cars. I’ve never seen an original before, but maybe someday! Love the prompt for next week btw :)

  • Megan

    These pieces are amazing. I have not yet seen a Banksy, but I would love to!

  • Nathalie

    I love street art and Banksy. I visited Brighton some 5 years ago and I can’t believe I didn’t pay attention back then!

  • Travel with Intent

    I love Banksy too, but I haven’t seen these. I’ve seen a couple in London. Shoreditch is a brilliant place to go for street art.

  • Travel with Intent

    And thanks for recommending Margo’s blog – I enjoyed her Venice post very much

  • Phoebe Thomas

    Those all look great, but I particularly like the cars hanging up. I haven’t seen any Banksy, though I’m hoping next time I visit my cousin in Cheltenham I will as one popped up right next to his house a couple of weeks ago!

  • Carly @ Let Us Wanderlust

    I love street photography and street art and these are great! The picture of the cars hanging reminds me a lot of Cadillac Ranch in Texas – we saw it briefly during our road trip!

  • AmyMacWorld

    This is incredible street art! Most of the street art I see around here is sloppy graffiti…this is actually lovely!

  • Rosie @Eco-Gites of Lenault

    I love good street art and this is street art at it’s best!

  • Calli D

    Great collection of Banksy’s – sadly I’ve yet to see one.

  • Rachel @ Me Myself and Atlanta

    Those pics are fab! I love street art, I really need to get to Brighton on a trip back to Blighty! Although having said that a Banksy has appeared why my brother lives in Cheltenham – that might be easier!

  • Jennifer Smith

    I saw some really cool street art in Zaragoza, Spain. Looking at these pictures just made me think of how cool I thought it was there. :) Thanks for hosting the link up!

  • Marysia @ My Travel Affairs

    I love street art! Great finds!

  • Elizabeth Georgian

    I absolutely love street art. I haven’t seen any Banksy work yet, but I would love to!

  • sofiadunc

    I haven’t seen Banksy’s art in person and I’d really love to! I’ve been admiring his art since a friend of mine mentioned him. I love those pinned cars!

  • Kolbi Gray

    So Jealous you’ve seen a Banksy piece in real life!

  • teresa

    Brighton is the place to be. <3

  • Anda Alexandra

    Love the Star Wars one <3 And one day I want to see a Banksy piece live! I just love StreetArt!
    I often write about the pieces I see on my blog :)
