10 reasons you need to move to Brighton & Hove in 2021!

…..(apart from it being the happiest place to live in the UK!) Dreamed of living in Brighton? We share our top 10 reasons why we love Brighton, and how you can enjoy our beautiful city once Lockdown has eased.

1) Flourishing employment opportunities

Renting in Brighton or renting in Hove will open endless employment opportunities in a year when finding a new career is going to be more challenging than ever.

Living in the city gives you a greater opportunity at finding a job you love as you’ll be in a position to interview and start working immediately, increasing your employability, whilst taking away the stress of starting a new job and moving house in the same week!

2) Arguably the greenest city in the UK

As the only city represented by the Green Party, it’s easy to see why Brighton and Hove is arguably the greenest city in the UK.

Residents and businesses in Brighton do all they can to reduce waste and take part in and support local eco-friendly initiatives – what a wonderful thing to be a part of by renting in Brighton or Hove.

Not only will it make your conscience feel good, but your body and mind will thank your for making the move to Brighton too. View our Brighton rentals here.

3) Shop ‘till you drop…

Brighton has a wide collection of unique, quirky shops across the city, from the North and South Lanes to the fantastic Churchill Square Shopping Centre, so you really can shop till you drop (once lockdown is over of course!)

Hove has endless boutiques to browse including beautiful homeware stores to shop from to style your rented property and make it your own  – just another reason to rent in Hove. View our Hove lettings here.

4) Life’s a beach!

Brighton is home to miles of pebble beaches, which are safe enough to swim in all year round if you fancy!

Whether you’re an early morning jogger or you love to spend your summer evenings with a beer, there are miles of beach to choose from. Brighton has even been voted one of the best city beach break destinations in the world.

There are many properties to rent in Brighton and Hove that are just a stone’s throw away from the beach.

5) Frolic in the fresh air

From family picnics in Preston Park to woodland walks in Stanmer Park, peaceful coffees in Hove Gardens to playground fun at Kings Road, there are plenty of green spaces to explore and enjoy in Brighton.

There are also many properties to rent in Brighton and Hove, which benefit from their own or shared gardens. You can view our properties to rent in Brighton and properties rent in Hove here.

6) Excellent transport links to London and beyond  

Wanting to make the move to Brighton but not ready to move your career away from the big smoke? No problem!

With trains to London running all day every day, Brighton and Hove is so well connected with journeys to the capital being less than 60 minutes, so you will never feel like your missing out by spending hours commuting – plus you get to return to your rented house by the seaside!

Grab a paper and a coffee and by the time you’ve caught up with your Instagram feed, you’ll be at work, ready to get on with your day, before returning home to a cool beer on the beach, or maybe a bit of retail therapy in the lanes on a Friday afternoon. 

Your work colleagues will be so envious of your relaxed lifestyle that they will spend their evenings searching for properties to rent in Brighton or looking up Hove lettings agencies.

7) Dancing the night away

Whether you like to sip posh Prosecco at The Grand or enjoy a cocktail at one of the many marvellous seafront clubs, there is nightlife entertainment for everyone.

Renting in Brighton will give you the added bonus of a short walk home after a night on the tiles.

8) Perfect mix of Arts and Culture

If ‘hitting the hay’ at 4am isn’t your thing, there are plenty of alternative entertainment that renting in Brighton and Hove will offer you.

Renowned for its uniqueness, Brighton is a perfect mix of arts and culture.

The Royal Pavilion sits in the heart of the city and every year Brighton hosts a range of festivals from Pride to Brighton Fringe, all of which celebrate the city’s diversity and culture and see Brighton and Hove residents celebrating the wonderful city they live in.

9) Food, glorious food!

This really is one for everybody! With so many diverse culinary options to choose from, it is actually possible to eat at a different restaurant every night of the year!

Whether you’re a freshly baked vegan croissant with almond latte or fancy ‘posh nosh’ with wine from a decanter type of person, there really is something for everyone.

And last but certainly not least…
