There are 2 great shopping areas the older Lanes which has some of the oldest properties in the city, with posh restaurants, ancient pubs, designer shops, jewellers and Harringtons Lane which was added in 2019. Or for a more funky vibe there's North Laines area which is more bohemian with street markets, cheap cafes, pubs and the Komedia award winning comedy venue.

It's been hit by shipping, damaged in storms, burnt down by arsonists (twice) - but still it remains one of Brighton's most Iconic landmarks. It was one of the only Grade 1 listed piers in the country and could have been a unique historic centre and theatre, but a combination of council errors - like gifting it to a charity for £1 that had no money, then lack of protection - within weeks of eventually receiving lottery funding it was burnt down! Sadly the Hippodrome Theatre is facing a similar lack of protection issues.

Only a short 20 min drive out of town or 45 min cycle (best route goes pass West Hove Golf course as a bit less hilly!) for spectacular views across of the coast and inland. Walkers can access the South Downs Way from here, and there's the Devil's Dyke pub if your thirsty and desperate, or there is the Shepard and Dog down the North side of the Downs which has a lot more character.

Food Scene
Recently opened last year this large restaurant has become a firm Brighton fav and a good place to celeb spot. Attentive not too formal service and reasonable prices for the quality of fare they offer. Nice wines too! 25 min walk or short bus ride. TIP: If you're there for lunch ask for their 'Set Menu' which they sometimes 'forget' to offer customers! It runs until 6.30 with a restricted choice but you get 2 courses for around £16, or 3 for £21 which is a bargain. Enjoy!

Situated on the seafront directly straight down from us, Marrocco's has been here since the sixties and no trip to Hove is complete without a visit to this authentic Italian restaurant to sample its amazing ice creams which are made on the premises. There's load of flavours to choose from with at least one 'odd ball' one every season. There is normally a queue for ice creams but it's worth it. Inside they do takeaway pizzas too for the beach and the restaurant itself is great for fish, pasta and pizza dishes at reasonable prices. https://www.marroccos.co.uk/menu

The No.1 place in Hove for a sundowner! This beachfront bar and restaurant is one of only a handful on the seafront. It's has benches on the deck to enjoy various food and drink options on offer (including craft beer!) and cute beach hut style outlets, there is also a walk in Lodge area at the back but the roof terrace and main restaurant tables need to be booked well in advance, atho the table service is realy really slow currently (June 2021 - 3 month after opening) so not reccommend at the moment!

Sea Frets

We occasionally get a spooky sea mist roll in, known locally as a 'sea fret', which can get stuck between the coast and the South Downs which surrounds the city. If this happens its always worth checking the local weather forecast more inland, e.g Hayward Heath to see if its just localised as it may be really sunny elsewhere!

Beach BBQs

BBQs are banned where there are nearby houses and there are beach patrols to enforce this, so that covers the area directly south of us, but if you go a few hundred metres either way BBQs are allowed there. Please never put a BBQ tray directly on the pebbles as the heat generated stays super hot for 12 hours or more and can cause burns to children etc. We do not allow BBQs in the property.
