The leafy town of Hove is located immediately to the west of its larger neighbour Brighton, with which it forms the unitary authority Brighton and Hove and forming a single conurbation together with Brighton and some smaller towns and villages running along the coast. As part of local government reform Brighton and Hove were merged to form the borough of Brighton and Hove in 1997. In 2000 the conjoined towns officially attained city status.
Hove is resplendent with acres of Regency townhouses, terracotta mansions and elegant mews which makes it one of the city’s most colourful quarters. Hove has several beautiful parks and gardens, one of the finest of which is Hove Park, criss-crossed with many paved footpaths popular with dog walkers and joggers alike. Hove Park has tennis courts, football pitches, bowling green, natural climbing wall and basketball court. Hove Park also has a ride-on miniature railway open throughout the summer months for children and adults to ride.
St Ann’s Well Gardens is home to fine array of native and more exotic trees and shrubs, a large fish pond, a cafe with great views as well as a scented garden.
The Monarch’s Way passes through Hove following the 615 mile route taken by King Charles II after the Battle of Worcester in 1651 as he made his escape from Cromwell’s Parliamentary forces via Shoreham-by-Sea to France. The route to Shoreham circumnavigates Hove from Southwick Hill via Benfield Hill, West Blatchington, Hove Park, the Royal Pavilion and then west along the seafront.
Hove is home to many independent shopping areas in the open boulevards of Hove, which offer an alternative shopping environment than the narrow and bustling streets and alleyways of Brighton. The Regency splendour of the Brunswick area of Hove, considered by many more fashionable part of town, is centred around the open space of Brunswick Square.
Hove is bordered by Brighton to the east and Portslade-by-Sea in the west, the distance between the boundaries being some 2.25 miles.
