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.

More and more interesting shops and eateries opening. Gaining a more pleasant bohemian character. Friendly and buzzy place to live and visit

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 :)

Less commercial & with better prices than the Laines for eating out, browsing in antique shops & taking in the Brighton ambience. Charity shops too if you like that sort of thing.

Kemp town is like a car boot sale. On the surface most of it is just tat but that's the beauty of Kemp Town, you have to dig a little deeper. Hidden amongst the usual high street shops are some of Brighton's best pubs, cafes and restaurants. It's easy to dismiss this part of Brighton but if you actually spend... More
