Cooler, quieter but still buzzing, Kemptown is Brighton at its best. Dog friendly beach, lovely shops and restaurants, Dont come and spoil it!

We have visited the Kemptown area of Brighton on numerous occasions, and each time we found something new to interest us. In fact we like it so much that we bought a large flat down here and now live in the heart of Kemptown just off the seafront. Recommended as a place to visit. If you need a hotel, we... More

There are some quirky shops and quite a few good bars and restaurants. Kemp Town is only a short walk to all the busy... More
