The Covid Pandemic has left us all looking at holidays closer to home, at least for the time being. Usually in the UK we would head to the south west, but a family occasion took us south east to Hove. We had never been to that area, you mainly hear about the highlights of Brighton, so we researched Hove. There is much to see and plenty or information on the Hove History site, well worth a look to discover the history of these interesting, attractive buildings and genteel squares.

We stayed at the Best Western Princes Marine Hotel on the sea front, very typical of the brand, comfortable, clean and friendly. There is limited free parking, so it’s worth getting there around check in time to hopefully secure a spot (there is general parking across the road) and there we left it for the duration of the stay. The buses are frequent and plentiful, £8 buys you a 24 hours pass for 2 people. There is level access and a lift. Although we don’t often opt for a sea view room, this time it was a good choice as there is much to watch on the sea front. (Room 40 was very spacious and had 2 chairs and a table by the window). The bar and restaurant were casual and friendly, food all fine. There are quite a few pubs and restaurants within walking distance.

Brighton itself is a 2-mile walk along the promenade or a bus ride, a real hustle and bustle place, with a pier, but quite an experience as something completely different !
Exploring parts of this country that we wouldn’t before, has been quite an eye-opener, give it a try !
