Check out Iydea ten minutes away for really good vegan and veggie food. If you're hungry late evening and low on cash, Pompoko over the road from the hostel is really good for a big bowl of donburi. There are loads of indie stores in the area for clothes and gifts, and the Laines are famous for their jewellery shops. The seafront is also ten minutes away, and the Pavilion is literally across the road. Public transport links are great - the parade the hostel is on has a lot of bus stops, and the rail station is a fifteen minute walk. You can't move for LGBT+ friendly establishments around the city.

Individual and independent shops, makes a different experience to visiting other large towns which mainly have the 'big boys' as their main attractions. Refreshing to find quirky, individual and different businesses. Avoided at all cost shops, bars, restaurants I can visit in my own home town.

I am a nature lover and being by the sea was most relaxing and serene. It was good to just sit near the shores and basque in the beauty and splendour of mother nature. I enjoyed seeing people and their families also enjoying the beach. It was not too crowed and the atmosphere was great.

How could the beaches in Brighton & Hove be made better for walking?

Jeez -- Don't wrap us in cotton wool. It's a gravel beach. It is what it is. Anyone who doesn't bring sensible shoes hasn't exercised basic common sense.
I do think though, that a sandy area for young children would enhance the provision and be welcomed by families- similar to the one that is already there for beach volleyball.
If the promenades were to be improved, I'd suggest that bicycle routes along the sea-front would make it easier to travel along the coastline of Brighton and Hove

During my experience, it wasn't very crowded as such sightseeing was relatively easy. However the view from my side sea view room was better than expected. Apart from the road maintenance barricades it was a picturesque view.

If possible avoid taking a car, the parking fees are extortionate. If you do take a car look out for evening parking rates, if you stay five minutes after 12 midnight they charge you a full day rate of £25+
