Just to the East of Central Brighton runs St James Street up and through Kemp Town with its trendy Bars, clubs and restaurants. If you want to buy something different this is the place. Home to Gay pubs, clubs and shops.

Confession: I'm biased here. I've lived in Brighton for nearly a decade and Kemptown is by far my favourite area of the city. Why? It's got everything you need on your doorstep. There are wonderful independent shops (Seed and Sprout and Kemptown Books and, well, pretty much everything on St George's Road). If you need high street chains like Boots... More

We can't recommend this. We had to queue for about 45 minutes to get into the cellar where the music was to take place, and the start itself of was then delayed. The whole place was seriously over-booked and dangerously over-crowded. with inadequate seating.. We won't be going there again.

Kemp Town seafront boasts Georgian, Regency, Victorian and later architecture. Stroll inland up the grand Squares, Crescents, Roads or narrow road ways or twittens to discover small individual shops; jewellery, gift, food purveyors and wine merchants with knowledge to impress. Good eating and drinking establishments abound!
