Hove seafront begins at Hove Lawns and stretches right along to Hove Lagoon, near Portslade. There is a stunning walk along the seafront, especially just as the sun rises or sets, from the West Pier onwards.
Hove Lawns provides a green space right next to the sea for families, friends and all to enjoy.
For those looking for a sporty option, there are several tennis courts and bowling greens available to the public on a pay and play basis.
