It’s always a pleasure to stroll along Hove’s wide promenade, which is next to the beach and which is backed by attractive beach huts and fine architecture. This affluent annex to Brighton has drawn well-heeled visitors to the coast for many years, from the Victorian heyday of large hotels to the fashionable bistros and chic boutique hotels that are here now.

A genteel setting at Hove.
There’s an up-market feel to Hove, with colourful beach huts decorating the walkway by the beach. The promenade is much wider and smoother than Brighton’s, which makes it perfect for a leisurely walk. The beach hut area of Hove’s seafront is a designated barbecue and dog walking spot, with lifeguards on hand and regular beach patrols.
