In Snowdogs

I can't believe we're already on to the penultimate Snowdogs post! There are just 10 days left to catch them so make sure you pop by and say hello.

So today we will take a trip to Brighton Marina, one of the largest marinas in Europe. If you are travelling by train then you can catch the number 7 bus from Brighton or Hove Stations and the bus takes you directly into the Marina. If it's a nice day then its about a 30 minute walk from Brighton Pier to the Marina, or if you prefer to drive there is a free car park as well.

If we use the West Quay pub as our starting point then walk along the upper deck past the Malmaison hotel and restaurants including Café Rouge. Turn left and head down the stairs to the lower deck where you'll find outlet shops and our fist Snowdog - Bow Wow. This pooch is a tribute to the legendary David Bowie and his Ziggy Stardust creation. Bow Wow features the classic lightening stripe across his face and back along with a picture of the man himself.

After leaving Bow Wow cross over the road and head towards the Katarina restaruant, past the restaurant you'll find the Octagon with more shops and restaurants as well as our next Snowdog sculpture. This one is a little different as it is actually a sand sculpture and the Snowdog has been joined by his old pal the Snowman.

Head back towards Bow Wow and up to the upper deck and this time turn left at the West Quay pub. This is the newest addition to the Brighton Marina boardwalk and features a great mix of restaurants as well as two gorgeous Snowdogs. The first one is the very colorful Brighton Rock in front of Bella Italia. The combination of colours did remind me of Smart Vibes outside of Brighton Station so I was not surprised to see that they were both created by Pinky.

Carry on walking along the boardwalk and you'll find our final Snowdog of the day - Bone China. As the name suggests this dog has been inspired by 18th century blue willow porcelain, however she has also embraced her waterfront position too.

Other places to look out for at Brighton Marina:

Snowdog Bonus: If you missed seeing Brighton Belle at London Victoria Station then you will be pleased to here that she is now in Brighton! She is outside the British Airways i360 shop (beach level) and don't forget the whole pack will be together for the Festive Farewell event on the 4th & 5th December.
