Hove Tourism

Even though it might be over shadowed by its boisterous next door cousinBrighton, Hove has retained its character and has learned to keep its soul intact. This seaside resort is known for its subtle charm and historic splendor. Tree lined streets hold the secrets of an exciting past and pops of regency architecture welcome you at unexpected turns.

Hove owes most of its rapid development in the nineteenth century to Brighton’s growth as a resort town. Maybe it was a spillover effect or maybe the city had it coming, in either way, Hove is now all grown up and polished.

Head to the Hove Museum and Art Gallery to truly experience genuine and unpretentious art or head to the Old Market and catch a standup comedy, Hove has a host of things that can keep you entertained without demanding you to be too glamorous.

Sure, do drop by Brighton for some partying and sinful indulgences but we bet you’d eventually want to come back home to Hove.
