Kemptown is a must visit area of Brighton, great for a bit of shopping and also a vibrant place for a night out - If Kemptown hasn't got what you want, you probably won't find it anywhere in Brighton

This part of town has the tattoo parlours, night clubs, supermarkets and 'ethnic' food spots and is definitely worth a look. I can recommend 'Bona Foodie' for lunch. The food is all made on the premises and cooked in ovens behind the counter. The quiches and salads, lasagne, cakes and coffee are all wonderful. Volk's electric railway operates along the... More

Amongst the wonderful architecture from there are lots of nooks and crannies to be found be it a little mews or individual style it has a high street where independent shops and venues can be enjoyed along with lots of cafes and pubs.

Stayed in this area a few times, it's away from the busier bars and thoroughfares, and has a small village feel. Mixed bohemian, newly gentrified and some a little dowdy, but all cool. Great mix of people, bars, restaurants.

Kemptown is a beautiful place about a mile away from the pier. There's a huge choice of cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants that offer excellent food & drink. A friendly area with amazing buildings to admire and within easy reach of Brighton and beyond.

Absolutely lovely when the sun shines in summer. But still lots to do in winter when other seaside towns close down Brighton and Kemptown keep going strong.

We've spent 3 days in Kemptown, Brighton and Eastbourne. Our hotel has been in Kemptown. Weather has been really wonderful - I was able to swim for the first time in England. Food has been great, good shopping nearby - probably somewhat less choice than in London, but much less crowds. However, I've barely have been able to sleep because... More

Stayed in the Blanche House hotel in this area. An excellent mixture of traditional pubs, cafes and shops. Also some interesting looking sex shops although I didn't go in. A little run down in some places but nothing more than you would expect.
