About our home

We live in a neighbourhood called Fiveways. Served by a good bus service, rail links and a great cluster of village shops at the end of our street. Would you believe we have a butcher and baker, but no candle stick maker! You have a choice of three nearby parks and a range of pubs with open fires and good food. Brighton is a brilliant city for visitors, with just 300,000 residents, its easy to get around and all very manageable. Our younger friends tell us it has a great night life and club scene, although we're most interested in its cinemas and fab choice of restaurants. You're never more than 50 yards from a café and there's plenty of welcoming and independent pubs. It has a mix of Georgian and Victorian architecture, with the area around the Lanes being the oldest part of the city. The North Laines is very arty with a lot of alternative and unusual quirky shops. We have a Pier, the Royal Pavilion, a Marina, two universities and a lovely modern public library. Plus we have the Dome Concert Hall and the historic Theatre Royal which attracts international performers and pre West End productions. Our local MP describes the city as “Dazzling: because there is an energy to be absorbed from simply being among the population, which represents the best of tolerant Britain...the town is as comfortable for a builder as it is for a drag queen". If you want to escape from the urban buzz, you can join the South Downs Way, which is a three mile drive from our home and offers a 120 mile stretch of protected natural beauty for walking and mountain biking. There's easy access to other parts of the country, including gorgeous country towns and villages, coastal walks and historical sites. Airports and ferries across to France are close at hand. If all this is not enough for you, the fast train service to London takes just 51 minutes.
