“Chilled”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

I always think of Kemp Town as a more chilled and laid back version of the night life in Brighton. Brilliant bars and pubs serving some of the best food around.

“Racy Kemp Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Although we were staying in a quiet square just off the front, we enjoyed the lively St James and George Streets - full of quirky shops, bars, pubs and restaurants and with some definitely different locals. The area is in walking distance of other areas, such as the shopping centres and the Lanes. So, a perfect spot for a few days away.

“Great vibe with interesting shops and cafes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you visit Brighton, you have to go to the Lanes. Great place for a mooch, and a browse and a snack. Don't leave Brighton without going to the Lanes!
