Cool bars, restaurants, incredibly friendly and close to the beach and on the footstep of Brighton's town centre.

We have never been this way on our visit to Brighton but Kemptown seems to loosely refer to the immediate inland area heading East from the town centre and pier towards the marina. We walked along At James's Street for about 3/4 of a mile...More

I recently visited Kemptown. It is a really nice place to wander along, have something to eat and do some shopping. It has some really nice shops where you can find something different to buy. It is a good area for people who like vegetarian...More

I love Kemptown in Brighton. I've been living in Kemptown now for about 7 years and it's definitely one of the better places to live in Brighton. Everyone is really down to earth and open minded. It has a great vibe and the Kemptown carnival...More

Quieter than main part of Brighton but really quirky, and lots of interesting little shops, coffee shops, all types of restuarants, social housing, churches and much variety.

Worth a wander, not for the shopping but many interesting coffee shops and cafes with a good range of food (especially vegetarian) and some fabulous delis. Slightly less expensive than the city centre. If walking to the Marina it;s an alternative to the sea front.

A very lively area, next to the Lanes, and the Pavillion. Walking in Kemptown will give you a glimpse of the past as it still retains a lingering taste of the 80s, beside being a place where you can have a large choice of pubs...More

Never a dull moment in Kemp Town, love it. From the many restaurants & bars to the quirky characters there was always something going on for the whole 3 years I lived in the area :) Just don't visit the Starbucks there, it's (rightfully) a...More

White Regency style buildings look out over the sea. Off the sea front you may find a few unusual shops and cafes. From the Brighton Palace Pier, in the sunshine, the view of the gleaming white fronted buildings is worth a glance.

Good restaurants here away from the town centre tourist traps. Quiet area to stay with good B&Bs (Snooze and 21 among them). Some interesting Victorian architecture.

Hi cannot advise you really as it depends on your budget. Look for accommodation in Upper Rock Gardens as that is a lovely area. Do not book anything on St James's Street as that is always busy but lovely.If you really want... More

The pavements are quite well negotiable in a wheelchair as the kerbs are dropped at the ends of the roads. Some shops do have disabled access upon request but some are at street level. As the previous person says, Kemptown... More
