We strongly recommend the walk along Hove & Brighton seafront. It takes about 10/15 minutes to get to the front from our home. Then take a leisurely stroll eastwards aided by the prevailing south westerly winds to take in the beaches, prom, whats left of the West Pier, the i360, shops, bars restaurants and the Palace Pier
