Visit Hove

There are plenty of things to do in Hove, but we recommend paying a visit to St Anne’s Wells Gardens, a lovely park with a terrific cafe.¬† Hove is quieter, smaller, and calm and quieter than Brighton, with a far lower concentration of students, making it ideal for wooded strolls and getting away from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Brighton offers it all when it comes to excellent student evenings, from dance nights on the seaside to hip and quirky bars to larger chain pubs. The city’s bar culture is constantly evolving, with many establishments featuring pop-up restaurants and drink venues.
