Walked from the pier to the marina and back through Kemptown. Don"t bother with the marina tis just awful. Kemptown on the other hand full of great pubs, shops and places to eat. Not a place to miss out on.

Great place to base yourself when staying over in Brighton. Around 25 minutes walk from Train Station & main shopping streets but close to the Pavillion & easy access to the sea front. Lots of small hotels & B&B accomodation.

A tranquil area away from the weekend buzz of Brighton itself, Kemptown has a plethora of antique and coffee shops with real character, the sort of place you can just chill and people watch. There are 'proper' shops like butchers and green grocers as well as delis. great old pubs like the Hand in Hand, Metro Deco the Art deco... More

This is the Brighton sea front. Amazing Regency architecture and a great place for a walk. Just inland is the village, a good place to eat or drink, with possibly the best French Patisserie this side of the Channel. The Marina is not to everyone's taste but certainly draws lots of visitors (and not all of them are there to... More

What a beautiful street to walk to! The gay community in Brighton is a beautiful place to go! All the bars are great, people are lovely, and they do lots of events almost every weekend!

We found this excellent fitness studio in between the mix of cafes and shops where you don't need to be a member you can just drop in. Anette took us for a spin class which turned out to be a rave complete with disco lights and great music we were glowing literally with our glow sticks ! There is a... More
