Kemptown Classic

The best place to stay, live and visit in Brighton. It really has it all in its own unique way. History, grandeur, famous people, shopping, cafes, restaurants and wild times.

This is a niche part of Brighton, great to walk thru and discover unique pubs, bars and cafes. The seafront has great architecture, beautiful crescents and squares..... parking a problem so stay on foot

I didnt find anything interesting to do, it was quiet, just some buildings & if you go to the beach front, nice view. But you'll get a nice beach view everywhere in brighton.

A diverse if a bit shabby round the edges neighbourhood just a few minutes from the Royal Pavilion. Plenty of cafes, shops and sole owned eateries - theres even a pub where it looks like aging football hooligans retire - Having been there at all times of day its not at all intimidating to walk round after dark - even...
