The Sussex town of Hove lies on the South coast and is immediately West of the town of Brighton. Hove and Brighton are joined into a single urban conurbation which as a whole has city status.
Hove itself sprung up as a popular nineteenth century resort and as a result of this history is home to many sizeable examples of Regency and Victorian architecture, as well as many tree-lined avenues and wide boulevards.
In recent times the town's attractive and gentrified atmosphere, alongside a less bustling seafront than it's vibrant neighbour Brighton's, has made it a popular location for those seeking a more relaxed environment.
Hove is home to the county's cricket club at whose ground many county and international fixtures are held, particularly with the advent of the modern Twenty20 form of cricket.
Although the local football league club, Brighton and Hove Albion, is at present without a home ground, the new stadium is under construction in Hove, due for completion in 2010.
