Dominated by the famous pebble beach and the architectural beauty of Regency squares and crescents, Hove seafront is a relaxed, friendly and diverse place to eat, shop and play.

Hove Lawns is like a large sea front garden. The lawns attract visitors all year round to enjoy the beautiful views and relative peace and quiet compared to the beach.

With its beautiful woodland walks and extensive open lands, Stanmer is just as perfect for a family picnic as it is for a kickabout with your friends, or for those looking for a bracing walk or cycle over the Downs.

The University of Sussex was the first of the new wave of UK universities founded in the 1960s. The university, with over 13,000 students has one of the most beautiful campus locations in Britain. Situated in rolling parkland on the edge of Brighton, the campus combines award-winning architecture with green open spaces. The campus is surrounded by the South Downs National Park, but close to the lively city of Brighton and Hove.

The Amex Stadium and also referred to as Falmer Stadium is the home of Brighton & Hove Albion. It officially opened on the 30th of July 2011 with a friendly match between Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur (2-3).

Brighton Marina is full of things to do. Enjoy exploring the waterfront with its wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Places to visit include the 8 –screen cinema, bowling alley and casino.
