Whilst it hasn't always been the number one place for me to live in Brighton, I've always had a great time when I've been there.

I've had family visit and stay there for a week or two. I've been to parties, dinners, pubs and even Antiques Roadshow!

The latter is a particular favourite of mine because I made the cut and had my antique valued and a pretty nice price! Its a bit of a departure in many ways from the rest of Brighton.

The characters, the buildings, the peacefulness.....its like a wee village in places. Very popular for students, random people and medical professionals (the hospital is conveniently on your doorstep).

Stay there, eat there or drink there. You'll like it.
