That place had a terrifying Santa Bear there over Christmas, I'll get the pic up in a minute.

The Madiera used to be the best place in Brighton by a country mile, but they've been taken over by a harvester now and it's shit.

Oh, and The Globe which is just round the corner from you, on Middle St, does quite nice lunch time food from what I remember

i wouldnt recomend it work wise,unless you want to work at amex or in a shop, its a fun place to live if your happy just plodding on with life,I had a great time when i lived there but after 4 years i was ready to get out, its very small and you quite quickly feel like everyone knows each other or is connected in someway, but if you just want to move somewhere to party for a few years then yeah its the place to go.not cheap to rent mind and next to no high paying jobs.

Seafront Travelodge. You won't find cheaper, book now because you don't get the cheap rates unless you book 21 days before, £138 for the 3 nights.
Not for the high rollers on here but on a budget it's great, if you just want somewhere clean and central it's perfect.

like seenmy says, it's a great place to be, as there's always something going on and it has a good feel but you don't really have any opportunities, like in a 'proper' city.
also, it's quite small and a bit of a goldfish bowl after a while.

Sweet, thanks GG didn't know there was one there. Some girl needs it for the 3 day tattoo convention. Hardcore.

NB Make sure you book seafront, because there is another travelodge in Brighton, bigger rooms but 25 minutes walk from the seafront.
(I managed to book 4 nights in the seafront one and the last night in the other one Oops)

The trains, what, an hour to London so its always possible to commute? And even make use of the London night life as well? Just something else to consider

commuting to Brighton aint cheap, nor is property in Brighton. I considered it a few years ago but it didn't make financial sense.

Brighton to London without a network card etc is £25ish return. Absolute rip-off considering the distance.

There was a restaurant in Sheffield that had hubbly bubbly pipes, they had to get rid of them when the smoking ban came in Sad

Ugh. Always fork out the extra couple of quid and go to La Capannina opposite the St James.

The Saint has to be my money-no-object place of choice, very much the same ballpark as the Hotel du Vin chain but cheaper, better and more personal.

On the other hand I thought Momma Cherri's was an overpriced, overhyped load of rubbish. But the I just googled to check the spelling and it's gone into administration with 200k of debt, so hey.
