Hove may appeal to families
Many people are attracted to the city of Brighton but the nearby
town of Hove may be a better fit for those families looking to move
to a location that is more subdued.
With just 91,000 residents and located in East Sussex, Hove is
within easy commuting distance of London and has lots of benefits
for households with children.
There are a number of great educational options in the area for
those interested in property
for sale in Hove, with varied primary schools, three high
schools and a sixth-form college all offering options for families
with children of all ages.
The transport links that connect Hove with the rest of the UK are
also very attractive, with road and rail links to nearby Brighton
and direct services from both of Hove's train stations to the
centre of London.
Good leisure attractions are important for those planning to
relocate. Hove's King Alfred Centre is a top class leisure centre,
which includes a gym and a swimming pool, as well as a whole host
of classes to raise the heart rate and improve fitness levels. It
is also in a great location overlooking the local coastline.
People who prefer to watch their sport could be attracted to the
famous Brighton and Hove Greyhound Stadium. There are races held
every Thursday and Saturday evenings, Wednesday afternoons plus
Friday and Sunday lunchtimes.
Culture vultures should also consider heading to Hove's TOM (The
Old Market) venue. Recently refurbished, the TOM can hold around
300 to 500 people and hosts a real mix of events such as music
concerts, live comedians, theatre and cabaret. It is also a
key venue in the annual Brighton Fringe Festival event.
Art fans moving the the area will be delighted by the Hove Museum
and Art Gallery. The building was completely refurbished in 2003
using private and public money and is home to one of the largest
collections of craft and film exhibits in the UK.
