The Top Things To Do And See In Hove

Carlotta Bosi

Hove is a little city situated on the coast of south England, immediately adjacent to Brighton with whom it merged to form Brighton-Hove. Here’s a list of things that make Hove worth a visit if you find yourself passing by this section of the pretty Sussex seaboard.

A walk on the beach

Hove is situated in the south-east of England, facing the English Channel. Tourists may enjoy a walk along the Promenade beside the beach, maybe walking towards the nearby Brighton pier to make a stop at the Brighton Fishing Museum, or just laying in the sun on warmer days. For the more athletic, beach volley fields are available, while oodles of romantic viewpoints and benches offer up some cracking broadsides of the sunset in the evening.

Adelaide Crescent

Adelaide Crescent

As one of the most interesting architecture pieces in town, Adelaide Crescent is definitely worth a look. Situated right behind the seafront, a few blocks from the City Hall, Adelaide Crescent is adjacent to Palmiera Square, a small park in the middle of a residential area. The residential building represents a mixture of Georgian and Italianate architecture and its shape is peculiar because of the curve it takes while progressively parting from the seafront, making the inner houses taller than the ones closer to the promenade.

Hove Museum and Art Gallery

Hove Museum and Art Gallery

Set in an old villa, the Hove Museum doesn’t only display artworks, but it has section dedicated to local history, cinema memorabilia from the early years along with contemporary art. A huge part of the museum focuses on children (but it’s also highly enjoyable for adults), putting a whole variety of toys on display, from teddy bears to doll houses, from trains to tricycles, and it also features a ‘Wizard’s Attic’. Hove Museum also hosts regular temporary exhibitions and entrance is free.

BOAT stands for Brighton Open Air Theatre and it’s located in the Hove Green park. Open air theatre is a great experience for anyone, including the youngest, and this new little gem is ideal to enjoy both a music show or a play and some fresh air. BOAT doesn’t only remind of a modern revisiting of Greek theatres like Epidaurus, but is actually just like them, boasting some seriously excellent acoustics.

Cameron Contemporary Art Gallery

Art Gallery

Cameron Contemporary Art Gallery features several temporary exhibitions right throughout the year, all of which are attended by a loyal local crowd of art lovers. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and they constantly renew the art on display, which anyone can opt to buy. It’s definitely worth a visit and not only for the free glass of wine on entry on exhibition nights!

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
