On many occasions, Brighton and Hove has been named as one of the happiest places to live and work. Famous for its seaside, culture, shopping and LGBTQ+ status, more people would choose this South Coast spot over other British locations. 


The Best of Hove

Hove is a seaside resort and one of the two main parts of the city of Brighton and Hove along with Brighton.
