Town on the south coast of England, part of city of Brighton & Hove
Hove ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
Hove is a seaside resort in the county of East Sussex, and a constituent part of the city of Brighton and Hove. Originally a "small but ancient fishing village" surrounded by open farmland, it grew rapidly in the 19th century in response to the development of its eastern neighbour Brighton, and by the Victorian era it was a fully developed town with borough status. Neighbouring parishes such as Aldrington and Hangleton were annexed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1997, as part of local government reform, the borough merged with Brighton to form the Borough of Brighton and Hove, and this unitary authority was granted city status in 2000.
