Our accomodation was in Kemp Town and it was nice place to be. Loads of gay bar and pubs, close to Sainsbury's, Morrison and Tesco which can help you save some money.

Kemp Town is just a short walk from centre of Brighton, but is so worth it. Lovely coffee shops and 1930's tea room. Very good antique shops and a quiet village atmosphere.

I love the Kemp Town flea market you can find some cool stuff in there! Thomas Kemp, Brighton Tocks and the Barley Mow are also nice relaxed pubs, great for a Sunday potter.

Kemp Town has seriously come up in the world over recent years and now boats the best selection of antique shops in the area, some great restaurants and bars and of course the seafront running right along it's southern edge. It's where Brighton locals go when they want to get away from the crowds :)
