Kemptown and East Brighton

Neighbourhoods
Brighton Marina is situated at the far eastern end of the beach, approximately 1.5 miles from the pier. Its best feature is the boardwalk overlooking the moorings. On a warm evening it can be a lovely place to watch the sun go down with a pizza and a drink in hand. There's loads of popular high street restaurants to choose from as well as three pubs, the best of which is the Master Mariner which has a decent selection of ales and plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the inner marina. The Marina also has a large Asda, an Odeon cinema, bowling alley and David Lloyd gym.

Kemptown stretches from the Old Steine in central Brighton to the eastern outskirts bordering Roedean and Brighton Marina. Kemptown village is situated about 3/4 mile east of the city centre. It sports numerous excellent cafe/restaurants and coffee shops (Ground is a favourite) as well as several good pubs with outdoor seating (The St George's Inn is particularly good). There's also an excellent butcher's, cheese shop and bakery, as well as a good number of quirky shops. The Kemptown seafront is well worth checking out. Next to a popular children's playground and crazy golf, there's Yellowave beach volleyball courts, wood-fired saunas, and Bison bbq beach bar. St James's Street, closest to the city centre, is the hub of Brighton's LGBT scene.

Great places to drink
What better place to drink beer than at the brewery itself? Sure it's on a small industrial estate (just off Roedean Road) but they've done a fab job of making it hospitable. It goes without saying the beers are great, and at retail prices too. There's always some interesting street food too.

A proper little local, and my favourite pub in Kemptown. The ale selection is fairly limited but always good. Inside is cosy and friendly, and there's substantial beer garden. The food has been turned up a notch recently, with excellent burgers and other pub grub.

Favourite coffee spots
A small, high class deli next to Sussex Square. The accompanying cafe is currently closed due to Covid, however you can still get excellent coffee, quality bacon sandwiches and cake to die for, to take away or sit with outside.

The original Kemptown coffee shop, and the second best coffee in Brighton (the best being Coffee@33 on Trafalgar Street). Also excellent teas. Definitely worth popping in for a quick sit down or a flat white to accompany your walk into town.

Things to do
Play on one of four beach volleyball courts (on sand, not Brighton's famous stones!). Booking in advance is recommended. It's also a great spot for a drink, either hot or cold - a bit of local's secret. All comers welcome, you don't need to be a volleyball player.

If you don't fancy the walk to or from town then take the train! The quirky little Volks electric railway is the oldest electric railway in the world still operating, and fun for young or old. Trains run from the pier to Black Rock station near the Marina. Tickets are £5 return for adults, £3 for children, dogs are allowed for free.

The undercliff walk runs for 3 miles below the white chalk cliffs from Brighton Marina to Saltdean. You can walk or cycle. The path starts at the back of Asda car park on the Marina. You can walk 1.5 miles to the cafe at Ovingdean gap for an ice cream, or carry on another 3/4 mile to the village of Rottingdean (try to grab a beach view table outside the White Horse). The beach is exposed at low tide, some of which is sandy. Be careful though, because the beach disappears entirely at high tide.

East Brighton park is the entrance to the South Downs National Park. The park itself has a children's play area, two football pitches and cricket pitch. There's a newly opened cafe serving drinks and an interesting mix of Indian/South African/English food.

Sheepcote Valley is in the South Downs National Park, and a wonderful place to walk dogs. It sports fantastic views across the city and the sea, and to the white cliffs in the East. The grass downland is maintained in the summer with the introduction of a grazing flock of sheep. The sheep keep the scrub down and make the chalky land a perfect place for rare wild flowers, butterflies and nesting skylarks.

Fabulous South Indian curries, currently to take away (hot) or finish at home. The menu includes street food, tandoori and tiffins, all of which is different to your standard curry fare, and a step up in quality too. The Kemptown kitchen is on Upper St James's Street, and the sister restaurant is on Ship Street in the centre of Brighton.
