Brighton & Hove is a multi-faceted city and it is possibly its trendy, cosmopolitan side that most people recognise. Local residents however are familiar with a much more fascinating, diverse place. What is it really like to live here? Is it just ‘London by the sea’ as the media portrays? Or does it have its own unique identity? The Deckchair Guide to Brighton & Hove addresses all this and more.

Hundreds of local people shared their knowledge and opinions in this guide book and many others volunteered their time to poll local people, source images, and write about why they love this city – warts and all.
