About the Area
Brighton is famous for tourists and foreign students that come here to learn/improve their English language and do some sightseeing. It has probably the nicest weather in England and is only a 50 minute train journey from London. The area of Brighton we live in is called Hove. It is the quieter part of Brighton next to the countryside. Our home is a couple of minutes walk from Hove park which is a large park containing lots of Tennis courts, football, Rugby and Basketball courts, a miniature railway, Cafe and lots of green space! There are a few shops just next to our home including a Newsagents/convenience store/Off licence/Post Office, Italian restaurant, dry cleaners and a gym. Just a 10 minute walk away is a large Waitress supermarket. There is a bus stop servicing Brighton and Hove train stations, the city centre and Brighton Marina just outside our home by the shops and a more frequent bus just a 10 minute walk away. We live just a 20 minute bus ride away from central Brighton and a 10 minute journey to the beach. Sussex University is a 12 minute drive away via the A27.
