It has to be done occasionally – A Full English at the Hummingbird Restaurant at the fine old Art Deco airport building at Shoreham-by-Sea. Louise opted for the Eggs Benedict which looked delicious – two traditionally poached eggs sitting on hunks of gammon on two large door stops and dressed in hollandaise sauce.
The grade II listed terminal building (now known as Brighton City Airport terminal) was built in 1936 by architect, R Stavers Hessell Tiltman. Peabody felt very comfortable sitting outside this grand old building (Peabody being two years its senior).
Inside, the terminal retains many of its original Art Deco features and what a delight it is sitting in the warm looking out at the various light aircraft taking off and landing.
Afterwards, Louise drove Peabody around the airfield perimeter prior to us heading back to Worthing on what was a very enjoyable outing on a bright, windy day.
